What a wonderful resurection day on Sunday

God truly blessed on Easter morning.  Pastor Konate, my assistant at Living Water Baptist Church, was able to perform his first baptism.  He baptized seven.  I baptized one, my oldest daughter Emily.  A few months back she trusted Jesus as her Savior.  Just  a few days ago she said she wanted to be baptized.

We also had four people put their faith in Christ.  Not only did we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, we saw four precious souls pass from death unto life.

Our time is winding down before we leave for America.  As I looked out Sunday morning over the congregation, I began to get a little choked up.  I am not usually an emotional person but I began to think about at all that God has done in the last three years at Living Water Baptist Church.  We have had our struggles and problems but God has been so God to us.  To think about what God has done is absolutely amazing.  I am really having a hard time leaving our church family.  I know that it is necessary but it isn’t easy.
