Turning 8 is a big deal, especially in our Church. When you turn 8 you get to be baptized into Christ's church and become an official member.
Well, our Mr J turned 8 last week and had his baptism. His awesome Dad was able to baptize him. So cool! Love this picture by Christ being baptized by John the Baptist. Baptism is a big step to show that we want to follow Christ and be like him.
Before he was baptized they have a little program--people talk--his Nana talked about being clean and repenting, and she had Mr J help her with this awesome experiment that shows when we sin we become dirty, but then repentance can make us clean again. Mr J said, "That was so cool!"
Then his 3 beautiful older sisters sang "I am a Child of God" as part of the program.
And then his Grandpa talked about the Holy Ghost and gave him a compass and compared the Holy Ghost to the compass and how it will always guide him and direct him in the right way.
It was a truly wonderful day with lots of family there and friends to support Mr J in his big day. What a wonderful boy he is and what a blessing to have in our family! We love you Mr J! We are proud of your decision and know you will do great things!!
