Baptized 3!

Last night was a great service at our church. We had two scheduled to be baptized and ended up with three!

Two months ago I led Emil and Nikolina to the Lord, and Nikolina agreed to be baptized this Sunday. Emil said he was not sure about the whole thing but he would think about it. As we prepared to baptize Nikolina, Emil said I want to be baptized. Later he told me that his chest began to pound and when he surrendered to obey God he had peace. I explained to him that that pounding is called conviction, because the Holy Spirit lives in him now. What a joy it was to baptize them.

The other man, Andeko, has never been to our church. He called out of the blue this week and said I want to be baptized! Brother Rich met with him led him to the Lord, and he was baptized this Sunday. He's asked me not to place pictures on the internet yet, because of his family. He is in his 3o's and lives at home. Please pray for him as he grows in grace. He said he would be back at church on Sunday!

The joy of the whole thing was that Nikolina decided to obey God and because of her obedience two more obeyed. It was a joy sharing this truth with her!

All I can say to the whole thing is praise God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why are the kids laughing? For many of them this is the first time that they'd ever seen anybody get baptized without sprinkling. They were tickled to death. Now all of them want to get baptized. Some of them have been saved, and we will try to get their parents permission so they too can follow the Lord!

This is sister Nikolina! Thank God she obeyed the Lord!

Praise the LORD, Bro. Johnny! That is wonderful! Thanks for sharing the photos and videos. What a blessing!

It was neat to hear you speaking Croatian. I've never heard it spoken until now.

So glad the Lord is blessing your ministry there! AMEN
