The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me. ~ Psalm 16:6 nasb

Down at the River

Today found us in Princeton, Illinois, at the site of the Captain Swift Bridge, the only two-lane covered bridge in Illinois.  No one was jumping off the bridge; we were next to it, along the Big Bureau Creek, to witness the public baptism of two young men.

Big Bureau Creek was muddy-looking this afternoon, and seemed to be rather shallow.  But you need only a few feet for a baptism, so it would work.  Turned out there's a deep channel a little more than halfway across, and the guys stood almost chest-deep in water--plenty for today's ceremony!

Lakota was baptized first, then Robin.

We had a time of prayer over these two young men who publicly dedicated their lives to Christ.

The B. family brought an old pump organ, so we had an accompaniment to our singing!

We all signed the baptism certificates as witnesses.

It's amazing and praise-worthy to see young folks declaring their allegiance to Jesus Christ because of a heart saved by His blood!
