Nathan has been talking about becoming a Christian for a long time. Last summer,at kid's camp, he asked the camp pastor lots of questions. He told us that Nathan knew the correct answers, but he didn't feel he was quite ready. Through the school year, we touched on the basics of the faith with our children in our devotions at night. Nathan told us about 2 months ago that he had asked Jesus to come into his life. We believed him, but wanted to be certain. Brian had to travel to Hot Springs, AR and asked Nathan if he wanted to ride with him. Of course, he said yes, because he would get to miss school!! :) Brian was able to talk to him about his salvation experience, and told me when they returned home that he felt Nathan was saved. We have seen a difference in his behavior, remembering that he is a new Christian. We are so proud of him, knowing this was the biggest decision he will ever make. We pray that we will be the examples he needs on this new journey of his life. So, May 22, 2011, Nate was baptized at Riverbend! Praise the Lord! We love you, Nathan!
