Beach Baptism

This is our first year at our church. 
We love absolutely everything about it.
Mark and I volunteered a couple weeks ago 
to help with the yearly Beach Baptism.
We had no idea what to expect.

We showed up at the beach 
at 7:00 a.m.
We had our teal volunteer tee shirts on.
We had our umbrella, our little cooler 
and our two fold-up chairs.

We get out there and began putting up the 
many canopies the church had provided.
The church was very organized 
and had lots of volunteers so it was fun and easy.

When everything was set up,
volunteers began to set their own tents up.
Mark and I didn't get that memo.

Just picture everyone with these amazing Ozark Trail and Academy gazebo tents.
Some had Florida Gator tents and Jaguars.
Mark and I had our little umbrella.
We were pitiful.
People even offered us food.

It was truly amazing.
We had no idea what we were in store for. 

it was a taste of heaven.

Over 250 people were baptized.

Everyone in a red shirt was baptized!
I grabbed the picture below from 
the churches Facebook page.

This photo below shows Mark talking with a man who came to watch his girlfriend get baptized.
He isn't a believer 
so it was a blessing to see Mark stay with him all day
 and make him feel welcomed.

We made lots of new friends all day.

God is doing some amazing things 
and I'm so blessed to be a part of this church.

Be sure the next baptism,
I will have me a big ole tent.
(or maybe not)
