Another very important thing happened over Christmas. Kate trusted Jesus as her Savior!
She had been asking questions about sin and what that means for her, about Jesus and forgiveness. There were times she would even just be in tears when she was caught in a lie - not because of being caught but because it was a sin. It was cute and funny and precious all at the same time.
David took her to talk with our children's minister and it seemed that she understood what Jesus had done for her, why she needs a Savior, and that Jesus is the only way to be with God in eternity. She truly believes in her heart that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died for her sins. On Christmas Eve she verbally confessed her sins and her belief in God! She has become a Child of the One True King!!!
This past April, she was baptized in obedience to God's command and as a testimony of her belief in Christ.
We were so glad that representatives of all of our family were able to come - we missed granddaddy, Nana, GG, and Uncle Philip and Aunt Kenna!
It was a great weekend. The baptism was at our annual church spring picnic. Kate got baptized in a lake.
At first, I was a little disappointed that she wouldn't be baptized at church but I think it turned out perfectly. And it's kind of neat to me that Jesus was baptized in a lake and so was Kate!
So thankful that God has called her to be His and that we are now SISTERS in Christ! I pray that she continues to seek God, to share His joy and love with others and to be used by Him!
