I cannot express how thrilled I was to have the opportunity to baptize my middle son, Eli, yesterday at our home church, Newton Baptist! It was roughly, three years ago that I was privileged to baptize my oldest son, Peyton there as well!
A couple of weeks ago, on the heels of vacation bible school at Solid Rock Baptist in Lansing, MI, as we were driving through the upper peninsula, Eli asked me, “dad, can I please get saved?”
He explained to me his need of salvation, how to be saved, and what that meant for him. I was rejoicing within my spirit as he bowed his head and asked Jesus to become his personal Savior! There is no greater joy that I have experience in my life and ministry than when my son’s decide to have a relationship with Jesus Christ!
We are continuing to pray for Neyland! Within the next couple of years, I hope to share a very similar story that he has also put his faith and trust in Jesus Christ as his personal Savior!
