The highlight of our first full day in Israel was our baptism in the Jordan River by pastor and tour leader, Lon Solomon (he's in the middle of the photo.) My husband and I had each been baptized when we first believed in Jesus as Savior, as Messiah. This day in the Jordan would serve as a reminder of that commitment to Christ.

We stood in the Jordan -- that same river where Jesus was baptized. Matt 3:16-17 tells us, As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, "This is my son, whom I love; with him I am well please."

I hope it's ok to use God's own words and say, I am well pleased with His Son too!
