Baptisms and Birthdays

We had a very busy and exciting weekend. Saturday morning we got up early and got things ready for our baptism. We had two vans rented plus our car. We all piled in and headed for San Matias to the river. Some of our people don't get to travel much, so a trip to the country was extra special. They were so excited.
Daniel is never in need of someone to hold him, there are many arms open and waiting.
The six candidates for baptism. The boy in the front is actually from an EFM church here in Tegucigalpa. Their pastor died back in March so they asked me to baptize Adonay. The other five are all from our Tiloarque church.
Starting the service with prayer.
Singing choruses.
Roberto has a shining testimony!! He was saved back in October and has just given it his all, wanting to serve the Lord. It has been encouraging to watch him grow in grace.
Baptizing Adriana, she and her family started coming to church in September of last year. They have grown leaps and bounds!!
Olga slowly waded into the water, scared to death. But when she came out of the water she was all smiles!!! It was worth it just to see her expression. God has really been helping her, so encouraging!!
Saturday was also Joseph's sixth birthday so we took advantage of the moment to have a little party after the baptisms.
Pablo sharpening his guitar skills.
Piñata time!! One of Joseph's favorite things to do at a party.
One hit closer to the candy.
Even some of the adults tried their hand at it.
Hannah made him a smurf cake.
On Sunday morning I handed out the baptism certificates. You would have thought they were receiving their doctorates in theology. They were so thrilled! Here is Roberto's wife Yennifer receiving her diploma.
