When you plan the winter baptisms on the first day of Spring you have to change the name! Of course, in San Diego it doesn't make much difference! We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating the public declaration of faith in Jesus for two young men.
Luke is a soon-to-be middle schooler that has grown in his pursuit of Jesus and he wanted to be baptized to let others know what Jesus had done for him on the cross.
Nathan, one of our high school students and the leader of our van loading crew was baptized to reflect his identity in Christ.
