Baptism Practice for Our Students!

Teaching young men how to baptise is one of the most fun classes we offer.

Our students gathered together in our back yard and had a regular service, complete with songs. Then the practice baptisms began.

There was an attempt at formality, but there was a lot more laughing involved than might be expected in a regular baptism.

Thanks to some generous helpers, we were able to replace a needed pump and now are using the pool for baptisms again.

Fanning the Spark

Javier quit his job with Homeland Security and has been seeking to serve the Lord. We gave him an opportunity to preach in our church about a year ago. He was in tears when we gave him a love offering.

He said, "I was hoping to serve the Lord full time, but didn't see how I could do it. This opportunity to preach and this love offering is like God telling me that I can serve Him and He will meet my needs."

Javier preached again today, after having spent a month in the Dominican Republic doing evangelism. He has reached over 100 people for Christ in that short time and plans to go back and continue his work there.

The Lord gave him a gift, but it seemed small in his sight. We are happy to be the ones who fanned that spark and see it grow into a bright light that has already led many to Christ.
