A new creation!

Another super exciting thing that happened in our family this summer was that Savannah asked Jesus into her heart!

Since family camp (where all our kids sleep in a loft together), Jacob has slept on the floor in Brittany and Savannah’s room.  I think he got so used to having people around him that he didn’t want it to end (sadly it will have to end tonight as they are all going back to school).  We finally took a mattress and put it in the floor so that he couldn’t blame us one day when he has back troubles!

The kids talk and talk and talk and talk in there, night after night.  Savannah had talked with Bill and I about wanting to be baptized a little after camp and then one night Brittany began talking to her about her salvation and after some discussion they came and got Bill and I and we were able to all pray together.  It was a sweet time, for sure.  Today she went  forward in church to make her decision public.  (If you aren’t Baptist and this sounds totally weird, feel free to ask me about it.  Basically we believe that there comes a time when you know and understand that Christ died for your sins and you want to have a personal relationship with Him.)  She will be baptized sometime soon.

Here is the new creation:

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

2 Corinthians 5:17

We are so excited to watch the story God is going to tell through Savannah’s life!
