it's been a long time since i posted anything, but this one is blog worthy!
our sweet sadie gave her life to Christ this summer when my sweet friend, farica, offered to take her & tess to vbs (vacation bible school). we missed the first couple days, but by wednesday, the girls were there and all about it. well...sadie was, tess...not so much. that's a whole other story. that day same day, when sadie got home she said she had something to tell me. big news!!! all the seeds that had been planted up to that point had finally sprouted and and through the encouragement of the sweet leaders at fbc orange grove, sadie prayed the prayer of salvation...asking Jesus to forgive her of her sins and ask Him to be the leader of her life...for the rest of her life. (sadie's words :)
there had been many conversations between sadie, tyler & myself about Jesus dying on the cross for us and what it means to have a personal relationship with Him. until that day whenever sadie had mentioned her salvation and wether she was or was not saved, there was noticeable doubt. but that wednesday i had such a peace about her news and she was so confident in what had happened. praise God for my new little sister in Christ!!!
the next step would be baptism and she knew it! she was so ready to be baptized and wanted it to happen asap in the pool. why not? so many others have been baptized here at camp wether in the pool, pond or lakeside. well, summertime out here at camp is super busy and before we knew it, summer was over and school was in session.
long (awesome) story short...sadie was baptized today by pastor chris dupree at agua dulce baptist church! to God be the glory for such a blessed time in our lives. not only was she baptized by a dear friend and new pastor of our "new to us" church, but so many of our favorite people were there to witness this amazing event!
here is the video...
...if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. romans 10:9
God is good all the time...and when He's not, He's great.
have a fantastic week!
