I wish to report that the last few weeks have been very exciting for us in East-Reach Zambia and at Hills View Church of Christ in particular. We have seen an unprecedented number of people get baptized in to Christ. We have baptized ten (10) individuals in the last two weekends. The pics that I have send you to day show Belia Banda Phiri the wife of our late brother in Christ Wilson Phiri and her neighbor Nelly Mtonga being baptized in to Christ today at lake Apolo which some of you have seen. Many, many, many people have put on the Lord through baptism in this lake. I and a few other brothers in Christ here in Chipata feel like God put Lake Apolo there for us.
It surely provides us with the much water needed for baptism. We also just enjoy the singing and the ride to lake to baptize people. It is always an exciting experience for all of us when we drive there.
Two weeks ago the Church of Christ at Apola dam was baptizing two people who had accepted the word of God and wanted to be baptized and so they went to Lake Apolo. The same Sunday, Hills View had five individuals that had accepted Christ and wanted to be baptized. As usual we went to Lake Apolo and there we met our brothers and sisters from Apola Dam Church of Christ. We decided that instead of having two different baptism sessions that we should have one only. We asked our brother Joseph Sakala who most of you know to baptize the seven individuals which he gladly did. It was like one big family.
It reminded me of what heaven will be like when we all gather before our father in heaven. Thank you guys for making what we do here possible.
