As Promised...Baptism Photos


Father David baptizing Malachi.


Receiving his Baptismal Candle.
We are laughing because the baby that was baptized before him was not sure what to do with the candle since he was so much younger but Malachi was very ready to do it himself.


Getting dressed in his white post-baptism outfit,
signifying being cleansed.


Being anointed with oil.

Thank you Lord for the amazing blessing you gave us
when you brought Malachi into this world
and chose us to be his parents.
Give us wisdom and grace as we,
along with godparents, family and friends,
raise him.

We continue to pray, as was included on Malachi's birth announcement, that he...
"...may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the length and width, height and depth of God's love,
and to know the Messiah's love that surpasses knowledge,
so you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3:18-19
