Henry's Baptism

Last Sunday, our friend Henry and his mother both became members of our church here.  Henry was also baptized.  When Henry first began coming to our church, he was suffering from a bone that had been infected and oozing pus for 7 years!!  When he was 12, he had broken his leg and it had never healed properly.  For seven years, he had not been able to walk properly or attend school.  Our mission was able to help him get surgery to clean out the infected bone and replace it with a rod.  He still struggles with it a bit, but it is healing slowly.  In all of this, he has had a growing desire to one day be a pastor.  But for now, he is regularly attending the reading classes of our MA, Sarah and learning to read for the first time.  We praise the Lord that he has professed his faith publicly and received the sacrament of baptism!  God certainly writes amazing stories!

Remember the twins that almost died and their father thought that their sickness was due to not sacrificing a goat?  Then the whole family came to know Christ over the months?  These sweet little ones were fascinated with Henry's baptism! :)
