"I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me - the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace." Acts 20:24

And today we Celebrated Keegan's Baptism!!!  

Keegan has had a deep understanding of Jesus and the Sacrifice that He made from a very young age. His faith was tested and made real a couple of years ago when he went through the trial with his neck injury. Even amidst the extreme pain he was feeling, he determined to trust Jesus and believe that He would eventually bring something good out of that pain. Now, two years later, he will still refer to that time in his life where he learned to trust Jesus no matter what. Keegan came to know that Jesus was real when he saw Him answer prayer after prayer and then eventually heal him. He has been wanting to get Baptized for some time now but hasn't wanted to stand in front of the whole church. He recently told us that he feels that God is telling him that it is time to take this step of faith and obedience...so he was feeling excited and ready to get up there! Brodie had the privilege of baptizing him and Kolson read his testimony and did an awesome job!!! We had some family and close friends over after to celebrate and had a wonderful day ;)

Keeg~ We are so proud of who Jesus is growing you into!

Keegan’s Testimony

I first asked Jesus into my heart when I was 3 with my Mom. I asked Jesus into my heart because I wanted to follow Him for the rest of my life. My Dad and Mom helped me understand that Jesus is my Savior by teaching me the Bible and reading it to me.My faith grew when I hurt my neck in 1st Grade. I knew God was in control and I trusted Him. 

My favorite verse is Proverbs 31:8: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” I like this verse because it reminds me of my little sister that we are adopting. I want to get Baptized because I want to follow Jesus for the rest of my life.

We will post a video from Keeg's Baptism tomorrow - it is taking forever to load!
