and 3 more were added...

we had a baptism yesterday. actually, there are 3 souls saved but the event was different.

i've witnessed baptism by submersion in a baptism pool in church & at sea, but because both were either inaccessible or impractical, we had it at a brother's house with a swimming pool. yet another sign of the changing times.





























but, surely it doesn't matter where it's done, whether in River Jordan with John the Baptist, or in the desert with Philip, as long as the heart is transformed. yesterday, there was much rejoicing in heaven as it was on earth














i'm certain the Father is well pleased.

I have always witnessed baptism conducted at someone else's swimming pool.

Eugene,

the harvest is full but workers few.

Mei Teng,

times certainly has changed, hasn't it? besides, some church premises aren't large enough to have a baptism pool.

I have never witness such baptism - in the pool or river . Usually , it's a traditional baptism fond.

UG,

perhaps someday you will be in the baptism pool yourself!
