Ella-Kathryn attended VBS a couple of summers ago. She told us that she had accepted Christ as her lord and saviour:) We were so excited for her - there is no greater joy than knowing that your child her relationship with the Lord and how that will carry through her life. What tremendous peace comes from knowing that you can have hope in this seemingly hopeless world; that you have a divine purpose; and that you will be immeasurably loved, beyond the love that you feel from your parents, all the days of your life! She wanted her daddy to do the honors of baptising her, as he had done for Jack. Jeff was not excited about getting up in front of our huge church family to do this again:) Crowds and public speaking are not his thing! So this opportunity presented itself - to baptise her at a local lake with friends who would be baptising their daughter, who is a dear friend of Ella-Kathyrn's! Yes, we were in! So today, Sunday September 09, 2012, Jeff baptised Ella-Kathryn.
