Churches Baptize New Believers
In a pond outside Tegucigalpa, Honduras, 24 new Christians declared their decision for Christ by being baptized. On that Sunday, April 22, all four of our POI churches met together for a day of corporate worship and baptism. Esteban Elvir, executive director, said the time of fellowship and communion among all the churches was an encouragement to everyone. He hopes to do this once a month at the Guacerique church location.
Among those baptized, 13 were from our newest church - San Juan. Gaby, from the orphanage, as well as POI staff member Adrian's son, joined those in baptism. A father who was recently paralyzed in an accident led his entire family in baptism. It was such a sweet time of celebration for new believers. Once all 24 were baptized, Pastor Miguel of Crucitas stood in the pond to preach to a crowd of approximately 400 people. Each church was responsible for bringing food for their congregation so after the service, everyone ate together and enjoyed free time in the park for the afternoon.
Thanks for praying and giving to POI. Your support makes all this possible. We praise the Lord for continually changing lives in Honduras!
