USA – Dale’s Baptism, September 16, 2016

We are so thankful for Dale, a young man who has become such an important part of the body of Christ in our community. He has made himself available to fellowship and support to many of us and we are thankful that he has committed himself to faith in Christ. We are witness to God’s mercy as he has made decisions to be responsible for actions he has taken in the past, knowing that God has forgiven him, but also knowing that there have been consequences and he has not tried to avoid them. A great example of courage and testimony of God’s faithfulness to make “all things new” and to restore “that which the locusts has eaten.” A wonderful blessing for Gabe, a long time friend, to baptize Dale with his aunt, his beautiful daughter and her best friend in attendance. We are witness to many that know Christ but have fallen away, coming back to Him. What a joy to witness the true meaning of the words of Jesus when He said: “My son, ‘the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”
