Matthew 3: 13, 16-17
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Just as the Savior was baptized, we, too, are baptized. In our church, children are baptized when they reach an age where they understand the choice they are making to be baptized. We call this the age of accountability, and it is eight years of age. I can't believe Jayce is already eight years old!
We took a few pictures before the baptism. I'm so glad Dallin and Erin could make it here, and Caitlin and Billy could get away from their super busy schedules to come.
We are so lucky to have such wonderful parents (Jayson's grandparents). My parents came all the way from Texas!
I love these two!
Derek is far away on his mission, so Jayce had to hold his missionary plaque.
The Sutherland children. Wow.
I didn't get many pictures of people who came. Thanks for coming, Linda! Nancy, Terry, and Hannah made their super long drive. And Gene and Michele! Thanks everyone!
It was a wonderful day, filled with family and feelings of love and gratitude for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
