First baptism in our satellite church since we launched

When we are in the audience and singing at the top of our lungs praising God, we don't realize the particulars of the first baptisimal service. We have had over 50 people accept Christ in the last five weeks. We had 13 baptized with three of them accepting Christ in the baptistry!! Most of them were young people that were baptized. What a blessing and the praise music was so awesome, I was caught up in it and forgot to cheer my head off for one who was raised up to walk in a new life. I think the part I love about what our pastor says is that we are so blessed that Jesus arose from the dead. If He hadn't then our submersion under the water would be the end of it. We would just be under water until the bubbles ceased. But He was raised just as we are when we are buried with Him in baptism and raised to walk a new life in Him. What an awesome God we serve!!

Just had to share!! God bless your day!!

About: I am originally from Texas but moved here to Southern California about 18 years ago to be near family for help in raising my children. I worked as a nurse in a local hospital in this area until retiring a year ago. My children are all grown, but still are a joy and then there are the grandchildren who are a joy also. Now I am continuing to venture forth with God as my guide. I chose my screen name because my name comes from Hebrew and means "a bee". My middle name, Kay, comes from Greek and means "exultant or rejoicing". So to me my name means, "One who seeks only the sweet (the Lord) in life with rejoicing". I believe and claim scriptural motivations for my name in the verses of Ezekial 3:3, Proverbs 16:21, and Psalms 19 I had a personal ministry within nursing which God placed me in years ago and now am seeking where He is taking me. The scripture He gave me years ago regarding my ministry is in Isaiah 40:1 "Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, Saith the Lord your God." Through His assistance, He works to do just that with the people I serve. My prayer is that all would come to have a supernatural experience with Jesus, to meet Him, accept Him into their lives and have a special relationship with Him forever. I just love a big family!!
