Deb Franklin was baptized yesterday! She is a life-long friend of Helen Hillman. Deb was a middle school teacher, but had to resign 2 years ago when she was diagnosed with ALS. The disease has robbed her of the ability to speak and swallow so she cannot eat.

Before she was baptized, she confessed with a pencil on paper that “Jesus is Lord!” The water was freezing and she was terrified to go under, but she did it anyway – so brave!  She will not be able to come to many services (if any) as she is very weak, but she desperately wants to be with us in spirit.  God is AWESOME!
