Fall Approaching Us

Beginning to get chilly around here and it definitely seems like time flies by taking care of two little ones! Here's the latest updates:
Glen did his first three baptisms on the 5th! The man pictured above is Ryan. Glen has been meeting with him the last 7-8 months going through the Old & New Testaments. He was saved through reading his bible one night alone in his room, has a powerful testimony. It was such a joy and thrill to share in his baptism. The two other baptisms were with Ryan's grand-parents...good stuff.
Micah gets a BIG BOY bed
