Brittyn!

Last night at church was so great! I've seen umpteen baptisms in my lifetime, but I've never seen one more special than last night. Brittyn is a 16-yr-old in our youth group who you could describe as a "100th sheep." She's the one the Shepherd left the other 99 to find. He climbed mountains and crossed the darkest valleys and canyons to bring her home. Saturday at Soul Link she decided to give her life to Christ and Chad baptized her last night. We could have flooded the church building with tears of joy last night. I think we used up all the Kleenex in the building.

Brittyn reads this blog, and it would be cool if you guys could post a comment welcoming her to the family. Thank you, Brittyn -- for letting us love you!

    Brittyn: I just read Deana's Blog twice and teared up both times ... How wonderful to have you as my sister. God bless you throughout all your days. Serve our King with gladness. He loves you so. Your brothers and sisters welcome you with outstretched arms.

    Brittyn, when people tell you that you have made the most important decision of your life, believe them! Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you! He will see you through whatever life throws at you. Welcome sister!

    It was a wonderful moment and one to not soon be forgotten. I helped with the kleenex depletion. Still rejoicing and looking forward to watching our young Christian sister grow in God! A new start with a clean slate. God's mercy and His grace. It doesn't get any better than that! Welcome to the family with bunches of love! (Lesa Brassette)
