Oh my gosh, that so awesome. I bet that was such a wonderful experience. My mom always tell me about her river baptism in the 60's and it sounds so wonderful. I would have loved that. My father was my Pastor and he baptized me in front of the entire church in the baptismal pool. I'm shy so I just wanted to be sprinkled but he made me do the submersion. He held me under there a little longer than he needed to as well.
