New Life

John baptized his dad today.  He told John on the phone recently that he would like to discuss the Bible the next time we came to town.  That being our vocation, we made sure to come to town as soon as possible.  They studied together for two days then, by his dad's request, John baptized him in his bathtub this morning.  He said he felt great and was happy that he lived long enough to be sorry for his sins.  By his own admission, he has always believed in Jesus as the Son of God but only now understands how that relates to his life.  John has never had a close relationship with his dad, but now, he says, he has an eternity to get to know him.


  1. Praise God! What a blessing for all of you!!!

  2. John, I am truly thankful to God! What a very special blessing this is. Kyle's dad became a Christian a couple of years ago. He has been a blessing to our lives since that time. God works miracles!
    Congrats to your entire family!
