Pastor Gardner shared the following about the exciting baptism we had at church last Sunday! It is always an exciting time when we have people follow the Lord in this great act of obedience!
I’m excited to present to you our newest member, Juan Garcia! Juan received Christ as his Savior just a few weeks ago and was baptized last Sunday, February 19th. Here is a testimony about Juan from one of our bus route volunteers:
I took the Brannon Road kids home last night and overheard Juan and some of the other kids talking about getting saved. One kid said, “I got saved on a Sunday.” I heard Juan say, “I want to get saved on Sunday at church.” So I asked him why he couldn’t get saved tonight. He said he didn’t know how. I went through salvation again with him and asked him what he would say to Jesus if He was standing right here with us. He said, “Well, I would tell him I was a sinner and that I needed to get saved.” So I told him that was what he would need to say when he prayed.So Juan bowed his head last night in the van and said, “Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. . .” and the tears started flowing from his eyes. After a pause I heard in a very broken voice, “. . . save me. I can’t do it on my own.”That was one of the most exciting things I have ever been able to witness!
