We are pretty eager to send this newsletter today because we can share some photos (and a musical slideshow) from the baptism service we held at a local resort/hotel. They were gracious in allowing us to use their pool to baptize 3-girls from our Home of Faith, plus one of our College Dorm girls as well.
These are girls from Home of Faith—wearing their church-dresses, and eager to see their older “house sisters” be baptized. (Rhoda on the left with Becky).
“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise!” Psalm 100:4
These are the young girls lined up poolside, and each one gave their testimony before entering the water.
“Many of them believed his message and were baptized…” Acts 2:41
Here you can see Tiida, from our college dorm, as Pastor Therachai prays, and house father Mong stands by to help.
“I have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.” (Mark 1:8)
This is Ruth, of Home of Comfort as she was just about to be buried under the water, and then arise in “new life”.
This group photo is all of the members of the “Mein Church” where the girls attend. It was a beautiful, but very, very hot, afternoon. After the girls were baptized, we all shared communion and sang praises.
May God bless you and keep you strong in faith and spirit,
