subtle reminders

Besides the fact that we love what we do, see the world, disciple hungry hearts and watch amazing transformations on a regular basis, every now and then we’ll get a reminder about the real stuff that goes down in TWR community that just makes us smile.  The following was waiting in my email inbox this morning:

Mike,
Last night was freakin sweet.  Karaline, girl who grew up catholic and feels like she really received assurance of salvation this week asked if she could be baptized last night.  We didn’t have anywhere to do it necessarily, but we decided we were going to make it happen.  We found a park on our little map that looked like it had 2 ponds, so the whole squad went there last night at 9pm.  I have never seen somebody so excited to get baptized.  She was giddy and jumping around the whole way there.  She was so excited to share with the squad what God is doing in her life.

So here comes the crazy part.  Besides the fact that we were in a park at about 9:30pm going into a pond that we probably shouldn’t have, it had concrete sides and I have no idea how deep it was.  I had to have Jamos lower me down and hold onto me, and Jeff had to lower Karaline so that I could grab onto her and baptize her.  It was epic.  Most incredible baptism I’ve ever been a part of.  Tomorrow or something I’ll send you pictures.  It was such a huge celebration time for the squad, and the Spirit was just flowing.  It was just awesome!

Thanks for coming down here.  Your presence was huge and it benefited our squad so much.  Love you man!
Bill 

See… you’re smiling… I’m smiling!  For those of you who have our back, pray for us, give us money or send support, thank you for your tangible love!  We feel it every day and it’s not a small thing to us!  Patti and I are so grateful and honored by everything you send our way!  You are crazy good to us! xoxo
