This morning we headed to Northpoint Community church to witness the baptism of our dear friend, Gerald. Gerald was one of the first teenagers Wesley met while he was the Teen Director at the Alpharetta YMCA and now, Gerald is the Teen Director at the same Y!
It has been so wonderful to see the amazing mentor relationship/ friendship that has developed between Wesley and Gerald. We all four love Mr. Gerald and I am so glad we were on hand to witness this day!
The baptism took place at the 12:45 service at Northpoint. This is one of the 5 services they have on Sundays and one of only 2 that doesn't offer childcare. We knew the boys would be okay during the singing and we were right. They have a full band and Jackson and Philip were in awe of the performance. At one point, Jackson turned to me and said, "I can't understand a word he is saying but that guy sure can play the drums!" He loved watching all the instruments.
They didn't last long during the sermon though. They had videotaped a prior service and were replaying it in the auditorium. Jackson couldn't understand why a person wasn't up there and he wasn't wiling to sit down so we "quietly" packed up our things and headed out.
I hated to leave early, but was so thankful we were able to witness Gerald's baptism early in the service!
