Washed by the Water

This past Wednesday we got together with our amazing community group plus a few extra and had us a good ole southern baptism. A few of the guys in our group had never been dunked before and decided it was time. We went out to a lodge that was close to a river. The guys shared why they decided to get baptized and then we all went down to the river and watched. It was one of the most incredible things I have ever witnessed. Marc had the privilege of baptizing 3 of the guys and was humbled by them asking.

Afterwards we had a delicious southern meal including fried chicken, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, green beans, rolls, salad and strawberry shortcake.
That night will be one that we won't ever forget. We have had the privilege of leading/co-leading a community group for the past 5 years with some new people and some others that have been with us since the beginning. They all mean so much to us and we are so grateful for each couple. Praise Jesus for a great community that surrounds us with love, accountability and prayers.

Romans 6
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.
