On May 20, David had the privilege of baptizing 5 of our youth! Baptisms here are done differently than in the States as the churches here typically don’t have a baptistry in their church. The church we are working with in Oak Ridge does all their baptisms at the ocean just down from the church in an area called “the white hole”. This is an area of the ocean that has been cleaned out specifically to be used for baptisms and has been the baptistry of the church for many years.
It was such a joyous occasion to see each of these youth following Jesus’ example and being baptized. We have grown to love the youth here in Oak Ridge immensely and being able to call them our brothers/sisters in Christ now is a treasured gift.
We truly believe the Lord is at work here in our community and we are praying for revival to sweep this community and spread across the island from east to west!
