“We were therefore buried with Him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” If we have been united with Him like this in His death, we will certainly also be united with Him in His resurrection.” Romans 6:4-5
Rebekah asked me and our youth pastor to speak on her behalf. That was hard for me. I almost lost it a couple times, but I did manage to keep the tears at bay. Well, only until I looked over at her a short while after she was baptised and she was positively glowing! I started to struggle very hard with the tears then.
My mom was able to come all the way out from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It was so nice to have her here.
Here are some pictures from the service;
|Pastor Matt challenging Rebekah to keep walking with the Lord. Larry helped with the dunking part. (And he was not as successful as me at keeping the tears away:)|
|I LOVE this picture! Look at how happy Rebekah is.|
We all had fun with my mom while she was here too;
It was a great weekend! One that we will always remember.
