Chantze's Baptism



My only son. Baptized. It was truly a proud moment. Chantze can be goofy and silly and downright gross sometimes, but the kid has a very real faith. All potty jokes aside, he understands what we were put on this Earth for, and he's more than ready to live it. Hard to believe? Go ahead and ask him about it - you'll see what I mean.

He's been wanting to get baptized for several years now, and I'm glad I finally gave in.

The event took place on July 27th at Wolf Lake. Presiding were Pastor Dan Smith (a very nice, very cheerful little guy) and Chantze's grandfather, Lloyd Jenkins, who is an elder/deacon of the church. The collage above is a series of screenshots captured from the video, so, the graininess is a culmination of poor video quality, distance, and cropping issues. My apologies.

I'm really glad I got to go. It was an important moment in his life, and it felt good to be there to share it.

I have pictures, too, but your video sure puts you in the moment! Chantze is truly an exceptional young man. Seeing him baptized, and knowing that he wanted it for himself at the tender age of 12, makes me realize that the things we do every day througout the time a child is young really does make a difference. Or should I say, the things his parents do....and to a somewhat lesser extent, the rest of us! Just shows you what can happen when exceptional parents raise an exceptional kid! I am proud of him, too, obviously!
