Ever witnessed a Baptism at the River?
Perhaps you’ve been baptized in a river?
I was baptized in a swimming pool…..I thought that was cool until I saw this…..
What a blessing! I couldn’t help but to cry as I watched each of the five candidates wade through the water….while songs of praise were sung from the river bank…in Portuguese!
The language spoken by the people of this country that I have come to love so very much. The language I struggle to speak daily. The same language I cry frustrated tears over when I ‘butcher’ my thoughts and sentiments directed at those I love so very much. How I long to communicate intelligently.
It was a simple reminder…..witnessing these baptisms.
It’s why we’re here.
It’s why we do what we do.
