To Tell of His Grace

A Special Sunday

It started in the BEST of ways....Kolson made the decision a few weeks ago to be baptized! 
Today was his special day :)

Brodie has had the privilege of baptizing all 3 of our big kids....it really doesn't get any better!

Kolson made a decision when he was as little as can be to love Jesus. He says that his faith became more "real" when Kaylee Grace came home. He has seen Jesus' love up-close and personal and he says he wants to always be a good Christ-follower! 

Baptism is a sign of our inward faith....our old lives are gone!

We have new life in Christ!!!!

We celebrated by having some of Kolson's church friends over...pretty much every week after church the kids play football after first service. We decided to move the game to our  house and have a little celebration in honor of Kolson's special day!
And then.......
 We had Speak Up 2014!!!

Speak Up came out of an experience Brodie had a couple of years back at the Orphan Summit. The Lord kept impressing the verse "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves" (Prov 31:8) on his heart. A few days later, Mike Hahn from HLF called and wanted to do a show here in Fresno. Our church hosted them and many lives were touched by hearing the plight of orphans worldwide (HLF exists to be a voice for the orphan...they SPEAK UP for all of the children worldwide who have no voice). We decided that the next year we wanted to make it a city-wide event....last year was our first ever Speak Up and this was our 2nd....a GREAT evening for our community!!!

His Little Feet is always our favorite part of the evening :)
Here is Kaylee enjoying them...and I just know she is wishing she was up there with them! She watches the video from a couple of years ago over and over and knows all the movements to each song :)
