    Experienced past weekend our youngest being dunked into the tank, so glad both now have made a profession of faith in Christ, and both now baptized!

    Both were 14 years of age...

    What age were some of your children whne they made the plunge?

    Just keep on praying and taking them before the Lord, as salvation is of the Lord himself!

    Well, My son killed himself in 1999, and my daughter is a very militant, die hard lesbian! I take her to the Lord all the time, and that will be until I leave!

    This sad tale is the result of my wife deciding she didn't want to be married to a pastor any longer, taking the kids to Texas, and keeping me from being in his or her life as often as possible!

    To say it was bitter, does not capture it. It was ugly, and along the way, the children suffered and the results are in what has happened! It breaks my heart. They were 4 and 5 when the marriage ended, and after the boyfriend was turned in by me, for saying to my daughter and ex that when she turned ten, he would love to have se& with here. My ex did nothing; so I did, and in turn the wisdom of the DSS allowed her to leave the state rather than hit her with charges for aiding and abetting a potential abuser. I wanted the kids back, but it never worked out, legally. Then bouncing around with several men, my ex placed the kids in one bad situation after another. In fact, she hated me so much, she failed to tell me of my sin's suicide for nearly two months.

    Life hasn't been easy, and the children of divorce always get the worse of it!

    So, all I have is prayer. And I have tons of people praying for her along with me!

    Again, I rejoice in your happiness. That is a blessing. BTW - my parents came to Jesus ate in life, and I witnessed their baptism at the ABC Baptist church they found Jesus at! I think I understand your joy! :thumbs:

    Praise the Lord for His work in your kids lives. I would have commented on this sooner but we're on the road right now and don't always have Internet.

    I baptized my boy when he was six, I believe, in a home-made baptistery in our home with our church people there. I baptized four or five folk in that thing, I believe.

    Tomorrow we will arrive at the college where I'll be teaching, and our son will arrive the next day. God willing we'll teach together for years to come!
