Over the past year and a half, they've both accepted Jesus as their Savior and Lord and asked Him to come into their hearts. Over the summer, they took the step of joining our church which is when they made a public profession of their faith in the Lord. That was such an exciting and proud day for us and one that surprised us. While we knew they had asked Jesus into their hearts, they were both slightly nervous to walk down the aisle to join the church (a practice in the Baptist denomination). During the service that Sunday, they told us they were ready and were going to do it.
About a month ago, we moved into a new sanctuary and yesterday was the first baptism in our new sanctuary. The boys have been so excited about their baptisms and woke up ready to go.
We are so proud of the decision they made to follow Jesus. It is the greatest decision they'll make in their life. It is our prayer that our boys will always allow the Lord to lead them, will be beacons of light for Him, and will "act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God" (Micah 6:8).
