It was a very special night at Zac's yesterday: it was the first baptism to be held in the building since it's been Zac's. (It used to be an old mission hall that had become vacant.) Sean has baptised people in the sea before but this one was extra-special.
The lady who was baptised has had a rotten life. She grew up being told she was bad, and when bad things happened, she was told it was her fault because she was bad. How can people destroy others in that way? What makes them say such things?
Anyway, she's become a Christian and her life is showing a great change. She's not 'there' yet - which one of us is? - but she is well on her way and the change is visible in her face, in her very skin.
Husband very kindly allowed me to take the camcorder along. he showed me how to do the basics so I sat and filmed all the talky bit fine and dandy. Then it was time for the baptism and I got up and walked round to the end of the pool to get a better angle. And at some point in that process, I stopped recording. And forgot to start again. So I missed the actual dunking.
Sometimes I think I shouldn't be let out without a minder.
