Paul & Austin went to the Padilla Bay Estuary this past week for the fourth grade field trip. It was a great time of father-son bonding, and the weather even cooperated. Not to mention all the cool stuff we learnt.
We celebrated Austin’s baptism on Sunday April 14th at CTK Church in Bellingham, WA!!! He had been wanting to get baptized for well over a year, and with our upcoming move to Kona, we felt this would be a good time. It worked out great, because his cousin Inga also wanted to get baptized, and so they both were baptized on the same day. Along with his baptism, April 14th is also Lynnette’s parent’s wedding anniversary and Paul’s mum’s birthday, so it’s a special day all around.
We followed up the baptism with a family lunch and celebration at Craig (Lynnette’s brother) and Ann’s house in Ferndale.
We think that Austin has made a great decision, and we are excited to watch God’s plans unfold as he grows into a young man.
