This is why we do what we do

16 Apr

I would like to introduce you to some of our newest brothers and sisters in Christ.  Last Sunday we had a baptism service planned, but unfortunately the city’s water supply was off and we couldn’t fill up our little swimming pool at the church.  We were not deterred though.  After our regular service finished up, we all loaded into the available vehicles and headed over to Soroti’s newest hotel which happens to now have Soroti’s only public swimming pool!

When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

Acts 2:37-39

We baptized 4 people – 3 young men who had just finished going through the new believers class I have been teaching at church, and 1 lady who Rachel has been meeting with weekly.

    Many blessings prayed for all who “brighten the corner where you are”. What a privilege to share the blessings in Africa. God is Great!
