Apr 6 Easter Baptismal Service
Not much time today so I just wanted to talk a bit about the
Baptismal service yesterday. There was no water in Zingwangwa, so the ZL's (Zone Leaders) used
the big 750L tank again to get water and then all the young men were carrying
it from the truck, down the stairs, and to the big baptismal tub behind the
meeting house. But then of course it wasn't even half way full. So the
candidates had to sit down and Elder Sagers kneeled down to perform the
ordinance so that they could be baptized by immersion, the way that Christ
showed us all and has commanded us all to be baptized. Super cool to see them
make due with the circumstances. And it meant so much to these two men that
were baptized. It was great to see them make that covenant and die and
ressurect with Christ on the day we celebrate His resurrection!
It was a good week love you all thanks for everything!
