A great Day!

video
Papa had a great day yesterday ! My 7 year old granddaughter was baptized. Yes papa wept! You see Sydney is a miracle child to papa - a long story. but yesterday Sydney made a commitment and a memory for a lifetime.

Several months ago Sydney asked Jesus into her heart! Now she was baptized! Yep, mama and papa are happy. Our prayer is that we will be a blessing to her on her spiritual journey as long as we both shall live -

That's awesome! My Grandma passed away on the 8th of November, and just hours before she went home Russ Payne came to her nursing home room and baptized her at her request...with my family present. It was beautiful and glorious and quite a great way in my opinion to go home. :) I miss you guys.
