Baptisms! (with photos and video)

Baptisms are always my favorite services, because in baptisms, discipleship comes into focus, and both conversion and commitment are highlighted. This past Sunday, three teenagers were baptized; Emiliano (13), Daniel (16) and Paola (18). We drove our vans and cars, 9 in all, about an hour outside of Mexico City to a beautiful park, complete
