So many good things happen in the kingdom of God, daily, that we just don’t know about. These are the things we ought to share, to encourage us and others.

Today is my spiritual birthday. It was 1971, best I recall. (I have the certificate stashed away somewhere.) I’m grateful the Lord called me to his freedom. He has proved faithful. I pray I may as well.
An evangelist in Bahia state wrote that Gilmar taught and baptized his own mother. Now there are eight members of the same family in Christ. Click below for photos.
With two people becoming Christians last night, the tally is up to four people obeying the gospel in the last three weeks at Keltonburg. All four people are between the ages of 16 and 23; three of which were not raised attending the services of the church.
Please remember these young people in your prayers as they continue to grow in the faith and in their service to the church in our community and also to their own families.
“Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.” (Acts 8:35-38)
Back in mid-October last year, a man named Eliya heard our radio announcement. He desired to attend the Bible classes. On one particular class day, by the time he found his way to the assembly place, the class had already concluded. He had traveled from the village of Tanangozi, which is about a 40 minute drive (depending on the road construction delays).
Contact with Eliya led to setting up a class in that village.
A Tanzania story reminds us of the power of God’s gospel to reach others. With several great pics of a baptism. Question: Are African waters always muddy?
From today’s QBT: God has room for all. He wants all to enter. “Go out … and urge people to come in, so that my house will be filled.” Lk 14.23 NET
Luke 14 is today’s Bible reading from the New Testament plan, one chapter per weekday.
See also United Prayer today. And how about the story and some photos of yesterday’s baptisms here in SJCampos? God is good.
May your day be blessed.
