I can't wait until I'm 8 - Baptism Day

We took a little trip with our visitors from the west to Winterset for a picnic on Saturday. We didn't get to go to Fons and Porters or the John Wayne Museum, but had fun at the park with the hedgemaze and the tower, where the following picture was taken.

Here is the family before Cole's Baptism. He was a little nervous, but was so excited and happy after the baptism. It was a very nice program. Grandpa Bowen spoke, as well as Brother Braden Cannon and Bishop Pence. There was a nice spirit there and it was great to be with friends and family. Although not all our family was able to be there, we could feel that they wanted to be here and their love for us.

Baptism is a wonderful expression of our willlingness to follow Christ. It is the time when we really become part of the family of Christ and take upon ourselves His name, and that of Christian. I am so proud of Cole to take this step and I pray we all have a better understanding of these covenants.
