Baptisms from our Church

The Potter's Baptist Church is coming together more and more. It has been through a lot of Evangelism, preaching and teaching of God's Word, and the obedience of faithful attenders who desire to be in a right relationship with God. 
We were able to have a baptism service on November 29th with four more giving testimonies of their Salvation before making our way to a church allowing us to use their baptismal tank. 

 Matthew led the songs and announcements while Samuel, Jon, and the other four prepared for the baptisms.
 Another blessing to participate in the baptisms of the believers. Please pray for Nancy, Jessica, Ever, and our daughter Katie as they seek to walk with the Lord. Katie got her assurance of Salvation while home on furlough this year at camp CoBeAc. She wanted to testify to others here that she also was saved and wanted to be baptised.

 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children desire to walk in the truth.

 This is the second Baptism service that we've held. We were able to give out certificates to those who have been baptised and were present at the current service.

Wedding of Ever and Jessica

Praising the Lord for the obedience of Ever and Jessica to get married and strive for a right relationship with God. They have recently been saved, baptised, and are currently being discipled. It has been exciting to see their enthusiasm and seriousness in their relationship with God. It was a blessing to be a witness of their growth. 

 Jon is at it again with providing games and activities at the reception.

Twins 14th Birthday Party

Our twin girls (Rebecca and Kathleen) turned 14 on November 26th. They requested having a Bible Character tea party with the Lindsay Family. They enjoyed sewing their costumes together when Judy was with us. They have been looking forward to this for awhile now. They prepared snacks, costumes, games, etc...
 The Lindsay's even participated with the costumes.
 Markos (the Leper) and Jon (John the Baptist) were the waiters for the tea party.

 Jon came as a few different characters (Lazarus and the deceiver).

 The twins were able to open more gifts before playing some Bible games.

We're so thankful for the twins and the opportunity to celebrate their growth each year.

Thanksgiving 2015 at our house

The girls birthday happened to fall on Thanksgiving this year, so we let them open their gifts in the morning and would celebrate with a party the next day. 

 Katie really likes her new jacket.

 Thanksgiving just isn't Thanksgiving without all the baking and silliness in the preparations. Jon even had Nisha trying new things to bake.
 What a blessing to have three American basketball players come and celebrate with us.
 The Lindsay Family (Missionaries as well) baked the turkeys and joined us as well to make this a fun Thanksgiving. There was plenty of food and desserts along with watching american football, monopoly, Wii, ping pong and other games.

We have so much to be Thankful for this year!
