Baptisms in Xepoocol

Today, Gaspar shared with me the photos he took when a family was recently baptized from Xepocol.

Baptism is a very special time in a person's life when they make the commitment to live a Christian life.  It is not a decision that someone can make for you but one that you have to make for yourself.

Gaspar's dad and uncle praying together before the baptisms begin.  They understand the powerful moment that this is.  Romans 6:3-4   Don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through glory of the Father, we may too live a new life.

This is the family of six baptisms.  What an exciting day for them.  We will pray that the youngest child, as he grows, will understand the importance of this decision and want to do the same in his life.

Here, the congregation of Xepocol gather after the baptisms.

We know there is rejoicing in heaven, as we also rejoice.
