Tonight as the sun was setting and the wind blowing we celebrated those who have placed their faith in Christ alone and witnessed the baptism of each one. I have to say it was a bit of a chilly evening…for Haiti:>) But all were ready to make their confession of faith and be plunged into the water for forgiveness of sin to arise from under with the newness of life everlasting. What was beautiful was to witness this with the sun setting and for one person a fishing boat rowing behind them.
The song “I will make you fishers of men if you follow me” began to go through my mind. What an awesome picture this was. (not my pics though as I didn’t have my camera with me so I made do with the phone I had…sorry folks.) It was a blessing to see those that the ladies and I have visited and who come to ladies Bible study make this decision…the most important decision they will ever make!!!
Some of the men in the church sang hymns and the ladies helped with each one coming out of the water. Tears in my eyes (I know hard to believe:>) I was blessed to be in attendance to witness and welcome my new sisters in Christ. Mesi Jezi!!!
“I have decided to follow Jesus…I have decided to follow Jesus…I have decided to follow Jesus….no turning back…no turning back.” AMEN.
