church family fun day and a decision

A couple weeks ago our church finished up their "taking VBS to the streets" program. To welcome the nearly 200 new comers and get the excitement going for the HUGE baptism service that night we had a Family Fun Day.

There was donuts, ice cream, drinks, balloons, face painting, games, bible story telling, and much more. As we left church that day bub announced HE was getting baptised at the service that night. We were a bit shocked to say the least. We've talked with him about "having Jesus in his heart" and being Christian but have not pushed baptism since he is just 6.  We questioned him when we got home and knew he fully understood his choice and was ready to make his public declaration of faith.

That night his Sunday school teacher Mr Trent baptised him and a few dozen other children as our senior pastors baptised a few HUNDRED people! PRAISE GOD! I wish I had pics but I didn't bring my phone in as we were at a public pool (only place big enough to hold everyone!)  A friend did video it but she doesn't have internet to email it to me. :-(
