Ruby and Molly got baptized on October 14th! Each one had their own salvation experience. Molly was here at home last October when Josh was reading about being born again from God’s Word. Ruby and Mack had fallen asleep, and I was just about to ask Josh if he could wrap it up so we could head to bed since most of us weren’t listening. THEN, I looked at Molly who was sitting right next to Josh and looking at him, following his every word. She asked a couple of questions and then we went to bed. A few minutes after putting the kids to bed and getting into our room, Molly called out for me. I went in, and she wanted to whisper something to me. “I wanna be saved.” Sweetness! She came into our bedroom where Josh talked some more with her, and she prayed right there that Jesus would forgive her of her sins and save her.
Ruby was at Vacation Bible School this past July. She listened to a staff member’s testimony, and she felt convicted of not asking Jesus to save her. She told me that she knew all the right answers, but she had never asked him to forgive her and save her.
So after many months of some good conversation, they each wanted to be baptized.

We are so happy for the girls! I remember the day I was saved, and I remember being baptized with my sister, Marcy. I pray that they will walk with the Lord all the days of their lives. I pray that Josh and I will be loving parents that show them what it means to follow Christ.
