Four years ago, when I shared Natalie’s Baptism Pictures and Stories, I mentioned the Bible Study group Natalie and her family were in also spawned another Bible study group with her cousins and their families. Nani is a part of that Bible study group, and today she gave all of herself to Jesus by baptism, because Jesus gave all of Himself for her.
Nani heard about the Bible study group I was having with her cousin’s family and asked me to have a Bible study group with her children and nephews.
Then her brother-in-law and his girl friend joined us, as well as other family members, and soon we were having about 11 family members in our new Bible Study group.
As well as studying together every week, we enjoyed eating together, playing together, going to ball games together, and soon I became family!
As Jesus became a bigger and bigger part of their family life Nani and her husband Geo asked me to dedicate their daughter to Jesus. We did so at the Tampa First SDA Church about five years ago.
After a few years of group Bible studies, Nani made her decision to be baptized and we began baptism studies. Today was the long awaited day when Nani was baptized into the Tampa First Seventh-day Adventist Church.
I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe Christ died on the cross for my sins and was risen on the third day to show his everlasting love and forgiveness . In good faith turning my life to The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit is the best decision I have made.I grew up around relatives talking about the word of God, reading the bible, at times attending church . I know the word of God but there is a difference knowing the word and following the word. I do not look for immediate perfection after baptism but by God’s grace and with His help I look to please my God in the best of my abilities. I am excited to say God is Love, and Love is God.
Please don’t let the sun go down on you without giving your life to Jesus, Who gave His life for you! I would love to help you make this decision. You can contact me at 813-933-7505 or Racerthree@Gmail.com
Also thank you for supporting my ministry making this baptism and many more possible!
