Baptism at Kaiiwi Lakes
Yesterday was a glorious day for multiple reasons, the most significant being the celebration of baptism for a man named Moses! Moses is a new believer at the Dargaville Church of the Nazarene, about an hour west of Whangarei, and yesterday was his big day to give a public testimony of how God is changing him from the inside out!
I still can't get over just how gracious and compassionate or Lord is. .. He IS STILL in the business of changing people, delivering from sin, overcoming additions, breaking through cycles of violence. Moses is a tangible reminder that you are never too old to be the recipient of God's love, care and power.
To the left you'll see two very important ladies: Donna and Adrienne. Donna is my co-pastor here at New Hope Church. Adrienne has so graciously welcomed me into her home and allowed me to rent a room there (and really become part of the family!). I thank the Lord everyday for these two incredible women who have embraced me, helped me, and become friends!
