Today was an exciting day for our family. We were all baptized as believers and we joined the membership of Christ Presbyterian Church. My sister and her family were present. It made me so happy that they shared in our joy. Thanks for coming and sharing our day. God has brought our family, and my sisters family so far and I am so glad we are all together still. God is so faithful.

At the end of service a young man came up and introduced himself to my husband. He is a student at a college in Richmond, and he had Pastor Charlie (our pastor from Memorial Baptist) as a professor. Evidently he visited MBC quit a few times, and asked Pastor Charlie if there was a church closer in proximity for him that he'd be comfortable recommending, and guess where he sent him. Christ Presbyterian Church. It is so exciting to see the work that God is doing through our lives.

Continue to pray for Jenny and Dean. They are sure facing prosecution from the family. I've had a chance to talk to her a couple of times, and of course I never have long to talk, but I can see the work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

Must go for now. Have a blessed week.
