Our baptisms were yesterday! We baptized Christine and Mark. Chris got baptized by her brother, and I baptized Mark. It was great.
When I dunked Mark under the water he really wasn’t expecting it, so when he came back up he was coughing haha, but it was still spiritual.
Mark bore his testimony. It was really really good. Here is an excerpt of it.
“Simply put, the ultimate meaning of our lives is to love fully – that is, we ought to have love towards everyone we are connected to. This obligation to love implies the ability to love. Faith tells us that God is love manifest; He who embodies unconditional love. Loving God is in and of itself the process of learning to love. Doing thus, we learn to understand and love others. . . . "
It was a really neat experience.
