My Baptism - Part 2

As promised, here are some pictures from my Baptism on Sunday!

This is Pastor Bryn and Sharky. Pastor Bryn is the one with the wiiiide mustache on the left!

There were five of us baptized. Here we are listening to Pastor Bryn explain how things are going to work. Why do I always look so unimpressed with everything?

I was lucky enough to be baptized in a river - just like in the Bible! This is the Little Red Deer River just north of my home. I grew up on an acreage a little further north from here and spent a lot of time in the summers cooling down in this river!

Here we are getting out of the water. It wasn't too cold which was nice! Fortunately the thunder and lightning didn't start until after lunch.

Pastor Bryn presented each of us with a brand new Bible and a certificate.

I'm so thankful that I had this opportunity - as Pastor Bryn said "It's been a long time coming".


  1. Congratulations on your baptism! It sounds like it was a very special day for you.
