Alyssa's baptism

A little over a year ago Alyssa came and told us she had been saved (Aaron is actually the one who led her to the Lord), but she never made a public profession of faith. We didn't want to pressure her as she was so young and we wanted it to be her own decision. Well, just recently she came to us again saying she wanted to be baptized, so last Sunday she went forward with Ed to make her profession public and then we had her baptism service the following Wednesday night. It was so sweet and so special. Mom and the girls got to be there also to see her. It really is amazing to see the Lord at work in little tiny hearts, and it's also a huge reminder that we can't do it alone. It has to be Him or we are wasting our time.
