Granddaughter's Baptism on Birthday


Rahjae became my granddaughter a couple years ago when my daughter married her father.  She and I have grown quite close and have formed a bond.  She may not be blood but she's definitely family.

Rahjae turned 13 years old last Thursday.  Officially a teenager!  She decided as part of her birthday that she wanted to be baptized.  She was allowed to choose who she wanted in the water with her (as long as that person has also been baptized).  I was honored that she chose me.  In addition, she wanted her Small Group Leader, Kristie, in the water.

Towards the end of Thursday night's service, Rahjae proclaimed her faith and got baptized (but not before I spent a few minutes gushing how great she is).  It's definitely a birthday to remember.
