Easter & Baptism

It was a full Easter Sunday with great music and a sanctuary filled almost twice. Kids and families gathered for food and the big Easter egg hunt pictured below.

Following a wonderful lunch with friends from three different churches, I went to Butterfly Beach to baptize a young man who accepted Christ last fall. His family came to witness his powerful testimony of change and pastors from Calvary Chapel came to bless and give words of encouragement. Adam and I walked out into the chilly waters and he said "It's really, really cold!" Then I baptized him in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. When he came up out of the waters, he was spurting and spitting, gasping for air. Then he said, it's not so cold any more...and he hugged me to the cheers of everyone on shore. It was a good, good day.
