Mid-October we celebrated our 3rd anniversary there in Norte, Patnanungan, Polillio Islands, where we began a church plant as we followed up decisions made after a Jesus film showing close to 3 years ago now.
Great Time Together
It was reported over 120 came to the celebration, including youth and children. It was a great time together, as we praised the Lord for his goodness, faithfulness, and blessings! In the afternoon 10 were baptized in the ocean, as well as several children dedicated.
Just In Time
I’ll never forget the 10th man baptized, who apparently had not come that day planning to get baptized, but made a spontaneous decision to join the candidates as he observed the baptismal service. He removed some of his clothes, and came running out in the water to make it just in time, before we finished! We’ll take ’em however they come!
Praise the Lord for every soul touched with the power of the gospel!
