Catty- Passionate

“After spending the weekend learning so much about God, I felt a stirring in my heart but disregarded it as emotions because of what was happening. My small group leader reached for my hands and said, “Catty, I wouldn’t say this if I didn’t think it was the Holy Spirit, but I really feel like you should get baptized.” I sat there for a moment realizing that this stirring in my heart was not of me, but of God.”

Letting go of my stubbornness and repenting of my sins, I surrendered and gave my life to the Lord. I felt a weight being lifted off of my shoulders and the Spirit of God broke down the walls of my heart.

Eleazar - Restored

“As the trip went on, I continued to hear about what Jesus had done these people’s lives and I was so surprised by the love that they had for Him. I knew that I wanted to proclaim Jesus the way they did. So an opportunity came up where I could get baptized, so I took it! We all drove to the beach and my small group leader baptized me in the ocean!”
