WORDFUL WEDNESDAY-VERONICA GOT BAPTIZED!

I'm so proud of Veronica. She made the decision that she wanted to be baptized on Sunday night. They made an announcement about it on Sunday morning, and they also talk alot about it in her Sunday school class.

Well, she totally understands what baptism is, and she told my husband that she wanted to do it.

She looked nervous, but I knew she would keep her composure.

I was on the side taking pictures, so I couldn't see from the front.

It was so cute though because after she got baptized I hear people screaming and clapping. My kids friends were all in the sanctuary and they all stood up and were clapping and yelling, "Nani!!"

Isn't that awesome? I love my kids friends!

Here's our Pastor talking to her first, and just ensuring that she knows exactly why she is doing this.

Congratulations! :) There is something to be said when they make the decision themselves.

Z saw the pictures and asked why Veronica is not wearing her swimsuit! :)

Night Owl Mama said...

Congratulations to her. I witness babtism like that before they are so meaningful I like that they do them when children can understand why they are being baptized.

Of course seeing the underwear in the 2nd photo made me wonder why he wasn't wearing a gown. How embarrassing.
