A few weeks ago, Savannah arrived back to Cochabamba and Belinda talked to her about being baptized, too. Shyrlen had never told me she wanted to be baptized too, but after talking with Savannah and Pastor Fernando, it was decided that both girls would be baptized at Belén!
Today was the much-awaited baptism. Most of the current tías (even a couple not working today) wanted to come as well as a few former tías who knew the girls when they were younger and all of the kids came to church with us today. It was quite the crowd for such a special event!
After church we invited a few of our friends over for lunch and to celebrate a little more. Sarah made a cake and we bought Bibles to give the girls. Everyone signed them and they received some really sweet, encouraging messages. I'm so happy we were able to be a part of such an important day for them!
