Ana was baptized today (Sunday, July 17th) in a clear water stream outside Monterrey Mexico. She is Martin’s wife, Genesis’ mother and a valuable part of the True Path Ministry team. She had been baptized as a baby, but decided it was important to be immersed as an adult believer. Look closely at the pictures of Ana and you may see rays of light hitting her. The Holy Spirit was shining His light in approval.
There were about eleven others in her same group who also went under the water and back up reflecting what is said in the bible. “Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)
Pastor Jose, Ana’s pastor, joined with Pastor Alfredo from Monterrey to perform the baptisms. The special river-side service is an annual event for many churches in the area. Many of those baptized were smiling broadly as they came out of the water.
An especially touching moment was when a disabled man, in a wheelchair, wanted his turn. He is a quadriplegic. What a tremendous act of faith for him to be baptized in the river. It was a moving day in the Lord. Glory to God!
