From VBS To Baptism!

I’m pictured here, singing with Taylor, who accepted Christ during our Camp Lakewood VBS for blind youth.

Sunday, August 9, 2009, at Grace United Methodist Church, Charleston, SC, this fifteen-year-old publicly professed his Christian faith, and was baptized by Pastor Don during the 11:00 AM service. There was not a dry eye in God’s house as T professed his faith aloud. Even Pastor Don cried along with the rest of us.

Special thanks to the folks at Grace Church, who even presented T with a dramatized audio Bible after handing him his Baptism Certificate.

We put T to work right away. He assisted me during the Children's Moment, and sang with me during the Offertory, "Open the Eyes of My Heart" ending with a chorus of "Alleluia". He got a
standing ovation.

Another special thanks to T’s great-grandparents, who are raising him. They were absolutely beaming with pride.

Please continue to pray for Taylor, and for the rest of us as we nurture this beautiful, young Christian in his newfound faith!

A Little About Me

My photo
God continues to bless me with a busy and fulfilling life. Even after thirty-plus years, my music and ministry keep going and growing. Blind from birth, I am n avid user of Braille and the long, white cane, in addition to a variety of mainstream and access technology. While my blindness does not define me, I consider it to be a unique gift from God. With this gift comes my opportunity to serve as an advocate on behalf of my fellow members of the Blindness community, living and serving among blind and sighted folks of all ages, on all walks of life.
