Timothy's Baptism!

Posted by Gabrielle

This Sunday was a bit overcast as we walked down to the lake for Timothy's baptism. Our dear friends, the Claytons came to join us for this wonderful time! And, as with Arianne and me, Daddy baptized him.

Mrs. Brown and the Claytons!
A large crowd of families gathered down by the lake. Every baptism is such a joyful time.
Scott Brown, one of the four elders of our church gives a short talk before...
Timothy comes up to give his testimony.
And Timothy comes up out of the water.

And, after every baptism we sing. This time we sang a beautiful hymn for the occasion:

There is a fountain filled with blood
Drawn from Immanuel's veins;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains:
Lose all their guilty stains,
Lose all their guilty stains;
And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,
Lose all their guilty stains.

Praise the holy name of Jesus!

I pray that Timothy continues to grow in Christ and glorify our Savior all his days!!!

I'm singing that hymn now in my heart. Thanks so much for posting about this. Hallelujah!

with love in Christ,
