23 were recently baptized in Norte, and 3 in Guinagayen, on the island of Patnanungan in the Polilio group of islands off of the east coast of Luzon. It was a joy to hear their testimonies, and to see their happiness as they were obediently baptized, and witnessed to their faith in Jesus as their Lord and Savior!
We were able to distribute follow up verses in the Tagalog language to many of them along with their baptismal certificates, and we have a team there working on a needful follow-up right now.
The Norte church is getting more established, with regular weekly Sunday services now, along with approx 10 weekly Bible studies.
I was especially blessed with several old ladies who were baptized, who expressed their joy at being able to know the Lord even in their old age, and becoming prepared for heaven, and ready to go… They seemed so delighted!
I can’t help but think of the many more like them that need to hear the gospel before it is too late……!
