Weekend Glimpse … Photo Style

This weekend was our Baptism Celebration weekend. It is the weekend where we do open, spontaneous, outdoor baptisms. Jud preached about baptism, people decided they were all-in, and they responded.

The catch … it was FREEZING! Had to be one of the coldest late-May weekends ever. I must have checked the weather on my phone 20 times. The temp never topped 58* on Sunday. That is winter like for us Vegas folks. The wind was blowing 20-30 miles per hour. And the water wasn’t heated. So, as I stood crying, watching all of those people shivering as they followed the Lord in baptism, all I could think was … that is MAJOR love and dedication to Jesus.

One of my favorite things is that families can link arms and get baptized together. It is really special. Here are some pictures:

    I love this Lori. How amazing. So many folks professing their love and faith in Christ and obeying the command to be baptized. What a great way to enjoy a weekend. Thanks for sharing this!

    If summertime is that cold in Scotland, you really might have to come visit me. 🙂

    I really do like the warm sun.

    Well for the majority of last few weeks it has hovered around 12-14 C (54-57 F)

    If it reaches 18 C (64 F) – that’s considered shorts and BBQ time. And we’re singing the praises!!

    We have done baptisms in North Sea in October before. (that’s BALTIC)
