Due to her age (8), our pastor was leary about letting her, but it was confirmed today that she is allowed! She accepted Christ last year, but was afraid of the pool, so that's why she waited.
When asked if she could explain salvation she said, "On one hand God is just and holy and has to punish sin, but on the other He is loving and doesn't want to punish us, so He sent Jesus to die on the cross for my sins so that I could go to heaven." \o/
She already testifies to her friends on a regular basis about God, Jesus, the rapture, and one time overheard a girl tell another that Native Americans were 'made' first, she opened her mouth and stated 'no they weren't Adam was created first, then Eve and they weren't Native Americans'. She has such a pure faith, and I'm so happy that she's able to make this declaration.
