At the fair

We went to a local fair with our small group over the weekend. Luke loved seeing the firetrucks. We were very proud of Luke because he went on his first fair ride!
Thanks for the pictures, Jay! For more pictures see

At the Pool

Luke learned to swim on his own without floaties on vacation! What a little fish he is! He said the pool and the fireworks were his favorite part of vacation.

Christina took family portraits of everyone at the beach. We were also able to get some just of Luke. They turned out great! Thanks Christina!

Birthday Fun

We got to celebrate Luke's birthday with his cousins at the beach on July 4th. His party ended with fireworks. What a great birthday!

John's baptism

John's first post:
The desire to be baptized has been impressed upon me for past few years. I needed to do this because for years my heart had grown cold and unresponsive towards Him. I was not growing closer to Him and I was perfectly comfortable being an undercover Christian out in the world. Thank God for His patience and forgiveness because Jesus has called me back into a growing, personal relationship. Even though I was saved and baptized when I was very young, I felt the need to obey this command as an adult. I wanted to stand in the water as a man, knowing what I was saying, and be publicly identified with Jesus the Christ. He has paid my penalty on the cross, forgiven my sins, given me everlasting life and the Holy Spirit. I have never been more satisfied with life and excited to live every moment for Jesus. I owe Him my all and want to be held accountable. Thanks to all who were able to come to this event in my walk with Him on June 19th. I will never forget the day.
