New Life

Romans 6:5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. 6For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with,[a] that we should no longer be slaves to sin— 7because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.

What a blessing today to witness the re-birth of 5 souls from the towns of Xepocol and Saquilla'. Two couples (Jose and Telma and Tomas and Micaela) and the youngest son of our friend ( Josue) were baptised today. It was a day of fellowship and worship and a reminder of our own death, burial, and resurrection with Christ. May God fill them with and transform them by his Spirit.

Elders from the church in Xepocol--Pedro and Juan, praying before getting started.
