Toño and Juan are Baptized

What a privilege it was for William to baptize two children from the Home and our 2 daughters last weekend. From the day we announced at church that we were going to have a baptism service, they insisted that they wanted to be baptized, and after asking them questions to find out their motivation, they showed a very good understanding of what baptism symbolizes.  The day of the baptisms was beautiful.  Below are photos and captions to show the day´s highlights.  Such a joyful day!
