2 Baptisms at All Nations on Easter Sunday

We are glad to see that two young girls at All Nations (Japanese) received baptism on Easter Day – Sophia and Haruna.  Sophia gave her own testimony of how the love of God has touched her life and how the Christian witnesses of her maternal grandparents and parents has impacted her walk with Jesus.

Haruna’s parents shared how they see Haruna as a true gift of God to their family.  During their long wait for the child, their faith was tested but at the same time, their knowledge of God had been enriched and their experience of His faithfulness deepened.

Pray for their spiritual growth and that they would always experience the Lord’s love and grace.

Here are some photos of the service.
