With them sat a pretty little girl of about ten years old.
I am always attracted to children.
Quickly I ran to their table, explaining as I arrived, " I NEVER leave home without it!!"

Emily was baptized in the lake along with about 20 others who were also obeying the Lord by being baptized.
My prayer for little Emily and these 20 others is that they will truly go on living a true Christian life and that they will be a real testimony to those around them!
Acts 2:41...Then they which gladly received his word were baptized:
