In Apalina, we had a large baptism event on the afternoon of Sunday the 16th. The church was packed from wall to wall and dozens of people were standing just outside. Joe P. from the visiting English group preached a powerful message while Adel N. translated, Zozo and Miklos from Sarmasag led the music, and Paul and I even got to sing a song, as the other English team members did too. It was a special afternoon, and many visitors heard the gospel for the first time. Izolda's baptism in Gornesti was a part of the regular morning worship service, but there were some visitors there as well who expressed a desire to learn more about Jesus and to follow him!

Please pray for these new disciples as they continue to learn and grow in their faith. Please pray they will be a light in their communities! Please also pray that we, along with Attila, Adel and the other leaders in our churches, will have wisdom to help lead them and that God will continue to work in the hearts of those in our communities of influence, drawing them to Him through faith and repentance.
