Baptizing New Disciples Wherever the Gospel is Preached and Believed
As our teams share the Gospel, make disciples, and plant churches, they also obey the Lord’s command to baptize the new disciples in the “name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” So, praise the Lord with us for our new sister Nakima, who recently was baptized by our brother Habil. Nakima hopes to serve as an ambassador for Christ to her native Ugandans. And praise Him for the nine recent baptisms in Sierra Leone, the four in the tiny Indian Ocean island of Rodrigues (far to the east of Madagascar and Mauritius), and the three in India despite opposition and persecution there. Pictured are those recent baptisms in India. Matthew 28:18-20.
Gospel Outreach and Responses in India
As a result of a particular Gospel outreach effort in India, 20 families there have expressed an interest in learning more about the Gospel. Pray that their openness to hear will result in faith to believe. Acts 26:19-29.
