Dead, Buried, and Risen Again

What an awesome privilege and experience to witness and participate in water baptisms today!  At the special invitation of the New Birth Bible Church in Querétaro, our small Sunday fellowship joined them in a special baptism service at a local water park.  Beth took at least one photo of each one who was baptized.

There were several unique aspects that made today’s baptisms very special.
One special thing was that out of our CAM ministry team’s four families, three of our families each had one child baptized.  
Second, in each of these cases, the dad was blessed to baptize his own son!  In the case of Bryan Smith’s son, he was baptized by BOTH of his grandfathers and his dad (Bryan)!  How cool is that?!?
Third, I was blessed to baptize both Jason, Kristin, and our own Dayton!  I can’t describe how awesome that was.  Even though our little “congregation” is an English-speaking group, I was asked to be do my part in Spanish.  That was a little challenging but I prepared my lines ahead of time and basically had them memorized.  I’m glad I did.  I think I would have totally blanked out while standing in the pool with  over 50 people standing around watching and listening!
In the photos below you’ll see our teammates baptizing their sons and the individuals from the New Birth Bible Church who were baptized.  Since there are many photos here, I’ll post separately the photos from the baptisms I helped perform.

  2. Yes and no…I didn't post D's photos on this post but on the next one up. This post has a lot of photos already and I also wanted the pics from our home church folks to be in their own post just to separate them. You might have seen it by now anyway, but since you asked, I thought I should answer.
