AN AFTERNOON OF BAPTISMS....
CONTINUING THE MONTH'S DAILY BLESSINGS....
WITH THE NOVEMBER 4TH BLESSING....

Wow! What a Sunday!!.....It started out this morning with church and that was great *I'll tell you why in tomorrow's "blessing" post"*, and then church was followed with an amazing afternoon.
Get this.....okay, I co-sponsor a group of high school athletes at our school called F.C.A. which stands for Fellowship of Christian Athletes. It's an awesome group of kids from our school that are involved in some type of school athletics. We meet every Monday night for fellowship, food, prayer, games, speakers, testimonies, questions for the sponsors that we have to some times "get back to ya on that!"; all learning and growing in our Lord; all swimming against the current of peer pressure and society to be the young man or woman that God is molding them into.

And this year has been amazing! It's like I tell the kids, "GOD IS IN THE BUILDING!" He is doing powerful things through the lives of these young men and women and Kim (my co-sponsor and dear friend) and I leave the meeting every Monday night in awe of how God is shaping the lives of these precious young people.

So, here's the deal!.....TODAY'S BLESSING....
WE BAPTIZED SIX OF OUR TEENAGERS THIS AFTERNOON IN A LOCAL CREEK!!
SIX!!! SIX KIDS ON FIRE FOR THE LORD!


I'm still so excited I'm starting to wonder if I'll be able to sleep
tonight. With all of the turmoil in the world, with all of the turmoil in our own little corner of the world, it blesses me so much to see proof that God is indeed "IN THE BUILDING!"

That's incredible!!! Our oldest son was baptised at an F.C.A. Motocross camp, in Indiana, quite a few years ago...

Sometimes it does a heart good to see some fruit of planting all those seeds!
