Emily’s Baptism

Today I was blessed enough to be baptized in the country that strengthened my faith two years ago. During worship last night, God placed the thought in my heart to ask Rene. I was uncertain but then a missionary was speaking and mentioned her favorite memory ever was watching the girl she sponsors get baptized in the river. That was a confirmation for me. So when we got to the hostel, I pulled Rene aside and asked her. Before I knew it, God was working and creating a plan for me. The entire team attended, and it meant the world to me. These people are amazing and loving and beautiful children of Christ. When Lucas and Rene were speaking while holding me in the water, I started to shake and tear up. I had so much shame and worthlessness held up deep inside. As I was being submerged, I felt all those feelings wash away from me. I rose smiling and full of love. I have been smiling all day long and feel like I want to sing from a mountain top. I thank God for this opportunity and the people I am surrounded by. Thank you also to everyone at home who is taking the time to read this. This day is one of the most important in my life and I am overjoyed to share the story.
