Baptism at Sun Lakes State Park

The Othello (Wash.) Church Adventurer Club celebrated with two baptisms at their annual church campout to Sun Lakes State Park in Washington state.

Wayne Hicks, Upper Columbia Conference Pathfinder director, baptized Abby Steffler and Katelyn Johnson in the cold lake waters following the church service which took place at the picnic tables.

Steffler studied with Eloyce Mundall, her Adventurer leader. Johnson studied with her parents, Larry and Cindy Johnson, Pathfinder leaders.

Steffler's parents were among the many friends and family that witnessed the baptism on this beautiful sunny day. The Pathfinders and Adventurers, in uniform, provided the honor guard during the baptismal service.

"This [baptism] is what makes all the work in Adventurers and Pathfinders so worthwhile," says Mundall.
