Last Sunday we baptized two people: Martha Cruz, and my daughter, Sulmi. I had been talking with both of them for over a month about what baptism means and why we do it. They were both ready to take this step of faith.
We started at out church where we sang and had testimonies about what God is doing in our lives; words of encouragement or just how we sensed Go walking with us. Afterwards we always take a short bathroom break, eye break (tough for Deaf to watch for an hour or so) and had a snack and juice. After about 15 minutes of fellowship we piled into the van with some sitting on laps and headed to the hotel with a pool right up the street. The owner has been a friend since I came to Belize. Because we were neighbors...she let us use the pool for the baptism for free. (How nice!)
After they shared their testimonies we entered the pool. Sulmi was first.

I think they are a little big for the baby pool :-)
