At the end of July, we had Christian Aaron Beilman baptized at church. It was the first baptism to be held at our church. It was a beautiful visual and tangible reminder of God's love for His people and His children. It was a beautiful Sacrament reminding us that God loved us before we loved Him. It's a blessing to claim His love for our children among our fellow community at New City Wien.
We explained to the older boys about baptism and even showed them pictures of when they had been baptized. (They all love to see pictures of themselves as babies!) I must confess, I was a little intimidated about taking all four of our kids up front. They all did rather okay. Actually, I think Christian was the fussiest, but only because he was hungry.
We're so thankful for Stacey for capturing the moment on film to be able to share with our friends and family. And she even took some family shots for us as well.
