We know that God is rejoicing in Heaven!

Sunday was a great day for us and a great celebration for both churches. We all came together for great singing, preaching and testimonies. The church was packed we had to add extra chairs to the front of the room. Several believers got up and shared encouragement to one another.

At the end of the service four people got up and shared why they wanted to be baptized two from Kavaje, Klaudia and Romina, and two from Durres, Jak and his brother Mateo. All four were ready to surrender their lives to Christ! Praise the Lord! We were very excited to be able to fulfill the great commandment,  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20. 

After church, many of the church followed us to the beach to witness the baptisms. We thank God that the weather cooperated with us this day and it was nice and sunny, even though it was still about 60 degrees. Arian said that the water was cold but it didn't matter at all because it was only about the plan of God for their lives. Romina was the first to be baptized and her and Jak have become friends. When she came out of the water Jak ran to the water and picked her up hugging her. It was precious to watch! They were so proud and encouraging to each other. This will be a day that they never forget! Now we have new brothers and sisters in Christ!
