We spent a weekend in Tallinn, Estonia. The bus ride is long, especially with all of the music videos playing on the TV for the duration.

Big waves at the baptism

September 3rd, 2009 – by Jerry Holsopple (category: Lithuania)

The City church had a baptism in the Baltic Sea last Sunday. The waves were big which made it challenging for those doing the baptism and a bit frightening for those who were going under. It was a great celebration and I’m glad I got the chance to be a part of this service. Later […]
