It was an exciting time to be able to witness seven people confessing their faith and obedience to follow Jesus.  Most exciting was seeing three men being baptized into the church in Darhan.  We went down by the river, shooed the cows out of the way and tried to find a place deep enough to immerse people.  The sun was unrelenting.

Our friend Pieter Theron helped to walk the pastor through the baptismal service.  The Baptismal candidates shared their profession of faith after the pastor gave a short sermon on baptism.  Afterwards everyone prayed together God’s blessing on those who followed in this step of obedience.
