Yesterday was a very special day! At 2:45pm we met at the church and a caravan of 8 vehicles made our way out to Parrot Tree Plantation for the baptism of 7 people. Rubeen was one of them! The sky was clear, the view was breathtaking, the sea was turquoise and pristine, but the most beautiful part of the day was to see our young Rubeen publically declare that she wants to follow Jesus. No shame. True joy!!
I gave Rubeen a double heart necklace as a gift to remind her that always: it is Jesus and her. Jesus and her. His love is so sweet and He will never leave her or forsake her.
It was a windy yet a gorgeous day to declare commitment to the Lord
It was a good turn out! But you can see that we are all huddled in the shade!
This was the other side ... it would have been too rough for a baptism!
True JOY! We were so happy that Bob was able to baptise her!
Afterwards... lots of hugs and blessings from family and friends
Please pray for Rubeen that she will continue to grow in her relationship with the Lord. I know she often feels alone in her faith at home and struggles to live a 'new life' there. But nothing is impossible with God and He has promised that the good work He has begun He will complete! Hallelujah and amen!
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great JOY, to the only God our Saviour, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen
