New Birth

"Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. " Romans 6:11

My friend Amanda was baptized on Sunday in one of the member's swimming pool. (we don't have a baptistry at church) Though she has messed up since she became a Christian, she has most assuredly put to death the old and is now 'born of water and the Spirit'.

Happy birthday Amanda! I'm so proud of you!!

Jess, you have always been the best example of the love of Christ that i have ever known. I feel very honored to be your friend. I love you so much! You are more than a sister to me.
And to all the blog readers who prayed for me.. Thank you for your prayers and love! Every day God shows me something new and wonderful, like the caring of strangers. Thank you!

What a great decision on your friend's part! I pray she will continue to grow in the Lord- she is lucky to have an encouraging friend like you!

I changed my address from:

Come Visit! :)
