JOHN 3:16

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).”

On Sunday, June 8, 2008, Luke was baptized at Wynne Baptist Church by Bro. Mark Sandy. Luke made a decision several weeks ago to ask Jesus into his heart and in return receive eternal life. I am so proud of Ashley and Pete for the guidance they have given Luke in becoming the young man he is today.

I just want Luke to know that God did not promise a life on this earth free of disappointment, pain, or grief, but he did promise to walk along the path with us no matter what. Luke, always rely on your faith and He will never leave you.

Parker's dedication was also on the same day and he was so good as Bro. Matt held him in front of the congregation. This service is held to celebrate God's gift of the child and the dedication of the parents to acknowledge the need for God's wisdom, guidance and strength in parenting.

Luke and Parker, I love you so much......

p.s. Luke’s teacher last year wrote such a sweet note on his last report card indicating what a great help he was to her all year, helping with the other kids, and recognizing that he had outstanding morals and she was so proud of him for that. We’re proud too and pray he will continue to know right from wrong and also that he will continue to make good decisions throughout his life.
