A little while later he came in the kitchen to slip me this note:
That night, after talking, asking questions and praying together, Luke accepted Jesus. It was sweet and precious and sincere.
Luke, being decisive and determined as he is, meant that he was ready to be baptized and that it was going to happen right away. He made a list of who he wanted there and set the date for Saturday. There was no discussion about postponing to give people time to make arrangements. He wanted them there that coming Saturday and that was all that mattered to him. We called the people on his list (oddly enough, it was all present and former school and Sunday school teachers and family members), and almost every one of them said they wouldn't miss it for the world.
We gathered Saturday morning around nine. We started off by playing in the sand and enjoying each other's company.
