The Baptism

Not many words can express how excited we were for our son, Will, when he made the decision to be baptized. Several weeks and several discussions (to make sure he understood the significance of what he was doing) led up to July 13th, 2008. Our church's annual Baptism BBQ held at the Larkin Ranch around their giant man-made concrete pond was the time and place for this momentous event!

So, Will, having made the decision to ask Jesus to live in his heart and life, believing that Jesus died for his sins once for all, was buried and rose again on the 3rd day, believing that it's not by anything man can do, was saved at the age of 4. And at the age of 6 decided to, in obedience, be baptized, ...the symbolism of our Salvation and an outward demonstration of our committment to our Savior.

His (Jesus') death.
His burial.

His resurrection!!!

...and Billy had the privilege of being a part of it. ahhhh. The joy on that face!
