Bella got saved!

A few months ago, our baby Bella asked Jesus to be her Savior.   While we knew the next step was baptism,  we continually asked her questions to make sure it ‘stuck’ so we weren’t guilty of giving her false security at such a young age. Once we were sure she had  truly been saved, we discussed baptism and the importance of it.  She already knew that was the next step of obedience when you become a Christian so her only hurdle was overcoming getting her face into and under the water.  Paul and I took several different approaches with practicing for the big day but she was never quite ready to go forward in front of the church.  A few Sundays ago, we were having communion and she was heartbroken when she found out that she could not participate because she had not already followed the Lord in baptism.  After that she couldn’t wait to tell Pastor Mike she was ready. We went forward with her on Sunday November 10, 2013 to tell the church she had gotten saved and was ready to be baptized.  Baptism is now scheduled for the am or pm service on 11/24. Congratulations Bella! Now join Mom and Dad in praying for baby Ella’s salvation.
