super sweet update...

So, here's an update to the sweet story on Saturday:

Sunday morning, when we picked Lynzi up from class...she was sporting a sticker on her dress and a cool certificate that said,

"I asked Jesus to come into my heart and be my best friend forever!" :)

She said she went up to the front during "Zooper Church" (preschool church...3-4 yr olds) and prayed for Jesus to come into her heart! (WOW, after all this asking Jesus into her heart...she's definitely full of Jesus now - there's no better condition for a heart than that! That is what God created hearts beat for HIM!!!) So when we have Sunday evening church, they have baptisms and take communion. I thought it would be a great time for her to see a baptismal service and take part in communion also. So I gave her the choice to go to her class or come into "big church" with us. She had a hard time deciding (because she LOVES her class and her friends!) She went back and forth and finally decided she wanted to go with us and she could go to class after worship, communion and baptism. She was glad she did because she thought it was really great...and it was a really special time with her! That evening, the pastor mentioned that 45 kids had accepted Jesus that morning during Zooper that was obviously their message that morning. But I think it is so special that God prepared Lynzi's heart the night before, so she was REALLY ready for ALL that he had for her on Sunday! Exciting stuff....
