dedicating rebecca

we held a dedication for rebecca, committing her to the Lord. it was a meaningful time of thanksgiving and prayer, which we spent with family and friends. we were very grateful to have randy, one of our pastors, come into our home and lead our mini-service. afterwards we had food!
