New Births!

Gilvan, Adison, Randy and Jenn
Originally uploaded by Brazil Bean Brewed.

On December 17th, we were pleased to add to our family of believers here in Salvador. Two of our youth decided to place their lives in God's hands when they were baptized by Randy in the ocean just outside our church building. It was a great day, we first had our Sunday service then invited the whole church to come witness to these two boys as they committed their lives to the Lord. The whole church then walked across the street and watched as these boys claimed Jesus as their Christ. It was great not only to see these boys commit their lives but also to see the church family welcome them and encourage them in their walk with the Lord. From that day on, these boys, Gilvan and Adison have been very active in their faith. They continue to attend a small bible study that we are having with a family near their homes and they also have been contributing to the Sunday services through prayer (though they are shy) and by serving the communion to others. Please pray for these boys that they can continue to serve the church and grow in their faith of the Lord. Please be with us, our team mates who serve them through the youth group and with our church members as we try to help them grow and stretch in their faith. Praise the Lord for the work He is doing in this city.
