Baptism by a good friend and brother.

A few weeks ago my wife and I gave a public testimony of being born again and being a new creature that has been cleaned by the blood of Christ. Though we were saved some years ago, neither of us had had the believers baptism. My wife had been baptized as a child in the Presbyterian church. But all that is, is some commitment thing of the parents to raise their children in a Godly home. It says nothing about the individuals salvation. In fact, to my knowledge, there is never a mention in the Bible about infant baptism. It is rather a practice held over from the Catholic church rituals. Some may argue that it was a compromise in the early church days since the Catholic church was persecuting those who got re-baptized, which basically was a statement saying that the Catholic church baptism was of no value.

Our house before

Our house before

SO we have lived in our home for a little over 4 years now. We have really done quite a bit of work, though the pace has slowed down since we started having children. By “pace” I mean the pace of work on the house, not the pace of “business” in the home =).

So it has now come to the outside of the house. Last year our church came over on a saturday and helped put our metal roof on. I cant have the roof finished till I get new siding on.

So, currently I am tearing off the old compressed fiber siding and putting up 1 inch foam board insulation. It is of plank construction, the way they did it in the old days! So far its going well. I took a week off of work and really tried to get alot done. The big time taker is trimming out the windows. I framing them with 2X4’s and then wrapping the 2X4’s  with aluminum. Its coming out rather nicely, but does take up a lot of time. I believe I can already feel the difference inside the house. I tried to hit the wall that gets most of the wind first.
