On Sunday afternoon, we had the great joy to witness the baptisms of Pierre and Joseph.
Pierre is in his late 50s, early 60s. He wasn’t brought up in the faith, and came to “religion” in adulthood. He was a dedicated Roman Catholic for many years and knows the Roman catholic system from experience. But he never had peace and kept looking. After a long journey, he has finally found true peace in Christ. He’s been coming to our church for over a year now, and I’ve met him a few times to study the Scriptures together. His wife came to the service, with two of their 7 children.
Joseph is our Pastor’s son. He was brought up in the faith, and accepted most things about God as true. But his testimony highlighted that in spite of this he was rebellious against God. But God eventually saved him.
There were between 30 and 40 people, folks from the church, but also a few unbelievers. The gospel was preached. After the service, people hanged around, chatting away. There was a happy atmosphere. We thank God for the privilege of witnessing these baptism and taking part in the service.
