Rachel publicly confessed her faith at her Confirmation on Palm Sunday, along with 3 other 8th graders. After years of midweek and confirmation classes, they successfully answered all of Ron's questions at the public questioning on Wednesday, April 1 in front of the congregation of St. Paul's. The confirmation service was perfect and we are so proud of Rachel. We look forward to watching what God has planned for her!
Ron's folks arrived on Tuesday, and were here for questioning on Wednesday night. We are thrilled that they were able to come and stay!
Their gift to Rachel was a lovely gold watch!
(We got her a camera!)
Isn't she lovely?
