This Sunday we celebrated my son, Colton’s, first birthday at our potluck. A first birthday is a big milestone in life, but as we celebrated, I could not help but think of the El Cajon congregation and how much they have contributed to my son’s life. They prayed for him before he was born that he would be healthy and have a safe birth. They prayed for him in the few weeks after he was born, that he would be healthy and they prayed that our parenting would go well. The congregation celebrated every milestone of Colton’s first year from the first time he sat up to the first time he started walking. The have welcomed him with open arms and have enjoyed having him during the services even when he wanted to give his own sermons :).
