The Perfect Dedication of ThePoeFam’s Swimming Pool…

This past Sunday, October 28th…after being in our house for a mere 2 weeks and 1 day…we invited the youth group and families to our house for a cookout. We should have known that we would have an amazing turn out (almost 100 people!!!), because there was so much more than food involved. Two of our students had made the recent decision to be baptized…and, when talking to Matt about it, they loved the idea of getting baptized in our pool! So, after a chilly morning, the sun came out for the most PERFECT day!

After grilling and eating, we all made our way outside to witness such a beautiful sight. I love that the first time our new pool was used was for Matt to baptize people in the name of Jesus Christ. Matt and the guys were FREEZING, but they survived and gave us all a memory that will never be forgotten.

After that, people hung around for hours…playing in the park across the street, in our backyard and in our cul de sac. We are so grateful that everyone came and were so appreciate for all of the sweet compliments about thePoeFam’s new home!  It was a crazy awesome first gathering…and we look forward to countless more!!!
