September 6 Update

Last Wednesday my brother and  I were able to travel up to Romania to assist in the baptizing up there.  From my village we drove about an hour and a half north, then crossed the Danube river on a ferry in Romania.  On one branch of the river there was a beautiful sandy spot with shallow water, perfect for baptizing.  Years ago we baptized a young woman named La-le.  This year her twelve year old son got baptized.  It's a blessing to see how her and the others have stayed faithful, and now their children are following the Lord.  Also, pastor Alish baptized his fifteen year old son this year.  Aside from the converts from his village churches each year pastor Alish has had the privilege to baptize some of his family members.  His sister was recently saved, along with many of is wife's relatives.  Since his father-in-law got saved this year he's been sober for the longest stretch of his adult life.  Altogether this year there have been forty-eight new believers baptized.
