Celebrating With the Angels!

Sunday afternoon we joined the church from Xepocol on a "little" hike to the river to baptize 11 people!  It was going to be 12, but one had to do something at a school in Santa Cruz.  There was a new family the the church has been evangelizing, the husband of one of the members, and several teens from the church, including ABC program kids.  After the baptism we headed back up for worship services and filled the auditorium.  We asked the church to gather up for a picture afterward to compare to a 2007 photo we have.  What a huge growth!  Here are some pics from the day.  Please keep these new Christians in mind when you pray, that they will learn to follow Jesus' commands and be led by the Spirit.
