Jasmine Kritz, 9, gave her heart to the Lord at summer camp, last year, and then faithfully studied each Sabbath afternoon for a year, preparing for baptism.
On summer camp Sabbath, this year, she publicly declared her decision to follow Jesus, through baptism.
As nearly 100 campers, staff, and community members looked on, Pastor Ken Reiswig of the Aleknagik Adventist Church baptized her in the cold waters of Lake Aleknagik.
As a special highlight, Roland Moody, also of Aleknagik, dedicated Jasmine’s brothers, Moses, Justus, and one-week-old Memphis, during the same service. It was a happy day for the children’s parents, Eric and Kristy Gosuk.
