Rejoicing with the Angels of God and Mactzul I

Beautiful day for baptisms.

After clinics today we got to take our students to see a baptism out at a local lake and take part in a church celebration afterward in Mactzul I. It's a great pleasure to be able to share church activities as well as clinical work with our students.  What a great day to celebrate the rebirth of 4 new brothers!  This church always impresses us in the way they love each other and spend their resources building up the youth, the women and young families. Today after the worship and presentation of the newly baptized members they took time to honor their elders with some gifts and words of appreciation to their spiritual "fathers".  We feel uplifted every time we get together with this church! 

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
John 13:33-36

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.Romans 10:8-10
