Obstacle Races - Summer Fun!

Baptism is a time of excitement in our church. We have worship, do our baptism and then have a major picnic! It's always a fantastic time and you can't help but wonder how the angels are carrying on in Heaven :)

These are my kids having such an amazing time going through one of the games that were put up for the picnic!

Oh to be kids again when 'those ' things matter :)

Happy Wednesday!

  6. My kids love that kind of thing too. The last baptism at our church had several people, but two were the preachers' grandchildren and you could tell he was all choked up (in a happy way). :)

  17. In the Philippines we do our baptism on salt water(beach) and after that we have food and just hanging out. We go swimming and do some games. It's a time for celebration for those who have trusted Jesus as their Savior. That is one cool bouncing game.
