This past Sunday was a memorable one. After nine brothers and sisters shared their testimonies and were baptized on Easter just one month ago, we held another baptism service where seven of our members got baptized! We were also joined by several members from other church plants as they flew out to Austin to help with the building of Longhorn Lodge.
Before the baptism, we watched a video of the seven people's testimonies. Once again we marveled at God's amazing power to transform lives and His desire to see everyone reconciled to Him. We heard their diverse backgrounds and experiences, but they were all similar in the fact that God was faithful in their lives. Pastor Jonathan also gave a message on King David and how he took a census, trusting in numbers and not in God. However, it is out of our love for God and acknowledgment of who He is that we need to obey and trust Him.
After that, we headed out to the swimming pool and celebrated as the candidates got baptized one by one. Then we had our usual time of food and fellowship, along with congratulations and picture taking. Praise God for what He has done in their lives!
