Dad is Ready to Baptize his Daughter!
One year ago Will Landes made the decision to publically proclaim that he had chosen to become a disciple of Jesus Christ by getting baptized at North Valley Community Church. He first learned about the church after seeing one of the many Ad signs placed around the local community and also through a mailer he received. He first met Pastor Ryan during a meeting in the Fireside Community Center.
Will married the love of his life, Andrea, over 10 years ago, and has two beautiful girls, Emily 9, and Melissa 8. They love to watch movies together, travel together and go on daddy/mommy/daughter dates!
Emily joined Will for volunteer orientation at North Valley and let him know she wanted to be a part of the Sign’s team he leads, so he "signed" her up, and she helped him pick up 12 signs her very first night! Emily was grinning from ear to ear, and he could see she was connecting with the same mission he has - to share Jesus Christ with as many people as possible!
The day Will was baptized was one of the greatest moments of his life. There is nothing he wants more than for his family to experience the same level of joy and fulfillment he found since he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Will has been talking to Emily about Baptism since he was baptized over a year ago. He asked her if she would like to be baptized by him and her eyes lit up, which told him that she felt loved by God and wanted to share what she felt with the church family.
Emily doesn’t have a shred of doubt that she is ready to proclaim her faith in Baptism. When dad baptizes his daughter, it will be an experience they will both joyfully cherish for the rest of their lives!
