It is late Sunday afternoon and we are headed to the beach to watch hundreds of people get baptized! How cool is that?? This is the second time our church has done beach baptisms since we have been here. The last time was Easter Sunday at Sunrise. The boys and I headed down to the beach very early and what we experienced that morning was amazing. It was one of the coolest things I have ever seen--over 500 people stepped into that water and were baptized just as the sun was rising. Chris said the feeling of victory each one of them was experiencing and displaying as he baptized many of them was overwhelming(If you know my husband at all, then you know that he was choked up for the rest of the day!!). It was a victory for the entire KINGDOM that day, and I am so excited that we get to experience it again today!! As I was explaining to Max that we are going to watch people get baptized in the ocean again, he says, "Oh, you mean we're going to go see who's on Jesus' team with us?" I couldn't have said it better myself. We are headed out the door to see who is proud to be on the winning team!!!
