Baptism in Candelaria, Tenerife

Today was a really great day here for us in the Canary Islands, as two people followed the Lord in Believer's baptism. Margarita received Jesus Christ about a seven or eight months ago, after her husband had been praying and fasting for her. She has been coming to church and studying the Bible with us.

Doug met Joakim near our church one day on visitation, and invited him to our services. He received the Lord and has been coming faithfully ever since, and is also doing a Bible course and attends our Friday Bible study.

After the baptism we went to the Men's home and Pedro fixed us all a huge dish of Spanish cuisine--all kinds of seafood-- prawns, squid, and other types of fish with noodles. We had a great time of fellowship.
