Chickened Out at the Last Minute



           Roberto has been studying the Bible with a couple in Colinas, Rogério and Sonia. They believed in the message shared from God’s word, and they decided to be baptized. We gathered at the building on Sunday afternoon to witness their new birth.

           Maybe the seriousness of the decision hit her or maybe she was afraid of what she was getting into, but Sonia said she wasn’t ready to get into the waters, and we said that she should wait until she was sure. Rogerio, though, had no qualms and was buried with Christ for forgiveness of sins.

           When it was over, I told Sonia that we are happy that the Colinas church is growing, and she with a big smile on her face said, “If the Lord wills, it will grow even more.” Oh yes, Sonia, that IS the Lord’s will.
