Last week had been a rough week for us.  The week before brought us some challenges, but in light of the news we received last Monday it was minor.  Cheryl’s aunt & uncle were in a car accident in northern Minnesota, they hit some ice, went off the road, rolled the car into a creek.  Cheryl’s uncle drowned.  Cheryl’s aunt was taken to Duluth and is currently recovering in an ICU.  So if you would please pray for Cheryl’s aunt Carol for healing and for comfort.  Pray for their children, grandchildren, and families.

We can rejoice that Cheryl’s uncle is now in the presence of Jesus after living a full 71-years.

This week started off well, I had the Sunday off from preaching (so no podcast this week).  I had the privilege of baptizing my youngest daughter, Lily at Valley Church.  She placed her faith and trust in Jesus when she was five, but chose to be baptized in obedience to the Lord’s command to be baptized.

Cheryl and I chose this verse to share at her baptism.

Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised, (Proverbs 31:30, ESV).

Our prayer is that both of our daughters would grow in their walk with Christ and that their inner beauty because of their devotion to Christ would be far more attractive than their outer beauty.  Below is the video of Lily’s baptism.

  1. I’m very sorry to learn about the passing of Cheryl’s uncle in such unfortunate circumstances. It’s wonderful, though, that we know that the Lord is in control and that her uncle is now with the Lord! Will pray for her and her family.

    It must have been something to baptize your own daughter!

    Lillian: May you continue to grow in your walk with Christ Jesus.
