Daddy sharing from God's Word
Son sharing from his heart
The hug that waited for his big brother
What words could I possibly use to express my heart. I have none. I will let my Joshua's own words splash you today, the words he shared with 65 loved ones who came to celebrate this special day with him.
Hola! My name is Joshua and I'm 7. I live in Costa Rica with my family. We're missionaries.
I have a strong relationship with Jesus. I love him. I talk to him. He speaks to me and I hear his voice. And he loves me.
I will follow Jesus my whole life. Because he's the son of God and I'm going to do what God tells me in the Bible. (this part he actually sang as we memorize verses to music) "For God loved the world so much, that he gave his one and only son. Anyone who believes in him will not die, but will have eternal life." - John 3:16
The Bible is my favorite book. My favorite books in the Bible are Joshua, 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel. I have read all of the gospels and Acts. I stopped in Romans because there are hardly any stories. So now, I'm reading all different parts of the Old Testament. There's a lot of good stories there.
I asked to be baptized because I want to follow Jesus with all my heart, soul, body and strength. So I want to do what Jesus did and be baptized.
I'm saying to the whole world that I'm going to live for Jesus, my whole life.
Thank you for coming to celebrate this wonderful day with me. I'm really excited.
For those unable to come, we wanted to share a little video we made and shared at his baptism celebration to highlight the amazing ways God has already used our Joshua's life.
