I'll have to quote what my campus pastor said as he spoke to the groups this morning, "I can't explain what goes on out there, but it's supernatural". And that's all I can say. I don't know why, when I don't even know these people, I tear up when see their excitement, when I hear the story of Jesus' baptism, when I watch them come out of the water. But I do, and I tear up even when I think back on it. Not even my camera is a strong enough buffer to stop the tears (although it makes for funny crying, since the tears mainly fall from the eye that's shut and blocked by the camera). I never got this emotional sitting in the crowd and watching, but being involved, seeing God's children express their love for Him.. it's amazing. I hope that these pictures can convey at least a portion of the glorious moments I experienced this morning.
(note the tear right above his mustache)
I'll quote my previous baptism post- "it is beatuiful!"
