Mission Manager Immanuel and other Yesuway Jeevan Mission staff members have been busy on Sunday mornings in recent weeks, as they have attended baptisms at five Advent Christian churches, both to share in these services of blessing and thanksgiving, and to present new Bibles to each of those who were baptised.
Please join with them as they give thanks to the Lord who working through His Holy Spirit brought a total of forty four brothers and sisters to publicly witness to their faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
Please also pray for those who were baptised, seeking the Lord’s blessing on their Christian walk and witness and praying that their faith may continue to grow as they are obedient to the Lord’s ways and precepts.
On 10 April 6 members were baptised at the FBHC church at Pallavaram. This church is pastored by Rev Prabu Manuel and has a membership of 150 from approximately 60 families.
On 17 April Immanuel attended the service at the FBHC church at Nandanam, where 9 members were baptised. The church is pastored by Rev Paul Selvin, and has 170 members from 80 families.
