Baptism Celebration

Today we welcomed a brother into the fold. Another believer's name was added to the Book of Life, and we couldn't be happier. A luncheon celebration was held at our home in celebration this afternoon, where the newly-baptized received many gifts - in addition to the gift of faith he received at the font this morning. 

Our family presented him with a new Lutheran Study Bible, complete with his name and baptism/confirmation date imprinted on the front. Since he hasn't had a Bible of his own, the gift was especially appreciated, and will be greatly treasured.
