Oh, what a night!

Allison was baptized

The Youth Group always stays up really late on Saturday night. When midnight has come and gone and it is officially Sunday, we gather on the beach, have a devotional, do the Lord's Supper and break off into groups to talk about things that young people face today. This trip the topic was baptism. From this conversation came the request of one of our Youth Group members to be baptized. After much rejoicing, it was decided that Blake Greene would baptize Allison in the ocean. Oh, what a joyous occasion and what a memory.

These beach trips with the youth are so awesome! And what a memorable one this turned out to be for all of you, especially Allison. Can't imagine a greater feeling for any young person than to have her peers alongside in support of the biggest decision of life. Wonderful!
