Get Drenched - Summer 2008

This summer, my church, GENESIS, had another baptism service. This time we headed out to Sandy Beach in Winchester and witnessed four of our friends proclaim their love and devotion to Jesus. It was incredibly moving and beautiful to witness.

The weather was awful that weekend - scattered thunderstorms the whole day. But we pressed ahead and the clouds opened up long enough for us to have our service.

Praying before they shared their testimonies.

My dear friend Suzanne totally had me in tears

I love the look of joy on her face here

I love this reaction!

But the moment when Ashley's husband, Scott hugged her afterward was the most powerful moment for me. I just love the way he's holding her and the way she's leaning in to him. It just screams love to me.

Right at the end of the service, this bird flew overhead and reminded me of a verse from the book of Mark. It says, "As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: 'You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.'” It just reminded me of how pleased God was that day.

And this is just a random shot of my adorable nephew watching everything from the beach. He's so cute :)

And here's a slideshow of the service, if you'd like to see more!
