Baptism of Renewal

Today I also had the opportunity to receive a baptism of renewal in the Aegean Sea just outside of Ephesus. This was an outward expression of the inward transformation, spiritual awakening, and desire for total commitment to Christ my Lord. It was great! After I was baptized we turned to walk back to shore and noticed two Turkish women were watching and clapping. We also noticed 2 armed Turkish military personnel waiting for us. Everything was OK, they just wanted to know what we were doing. After getting an explanation, they smiled and we took our pictures with them. What a scene.

Here's a movie I put together of the awesome occassion:

Eric,

I viewed your renewal, commitment to the Lord and celebration through Baptism in the Agean Sea. It was beautiful - the visual, seeing Andy speaking God's word over you, the covering of his cleansing power - the joy readily seen with the knowledge of he who is the Lord of life - the words across the screen of your testimony and surrender - in concert with the inspiring music and song.

Thank you for posting for us to see. God bless you always and in all things!
