Baptizing Them in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

Today was an important day in the life of our little house church. We’ve not been growing in numbers, but we’re growing. And part of that growing was the commitment that 5 adult believers in the church made to obey the Lord and be baptized in water as a symbolic representation of their faith in Christ and their decision to follow Jesus.

At this point, all the adult believers in the church are now baptized. For a variety of reasons it has taken some time for these to reach this point, but the joy of following Christ through these baptisms today was evident to all.

Our good friends, Paul and Denise Lambert, hosted us in their home. Their co-workers, the Bedfords helped out with music along with two of the Lambert’s kids. Our teammate, Bryan Smith, gave an excellent message on the theme of baptism.

The water in the pool was chilly and took a bit to get used to. I wasn’t sure if I could handle the water temperature ahead of time, but I was determined to get in and participate. Bryan also led the baptism for me as I assisted and mostly was just glad to be there. I’ve had a rough few days health-wise and for the first time in about three weeks, I struggled to breathe in my attempt to sleep through the night and only slept a couple hours. I wasn’t feeling up for much today, so having our missionary friends run the entire service was a much needed help and blessing.

Here are some pics from our special time together today:
