Our third team since May left just left almost two weeks ago. This one was from our own church, Beacon Hill Baptist in Oklahoma. They participated in nearly every one of our ministries and it was a joy as always to see friends that we have known for many years. Avery Johnson is with us for a few more weeks before returning to University Of Tulsa for the Fall semester. She is doing a great job teaching classes, hosting events, and developing new programs.
A few days ago our pastor, Doug Johnson, arrived from Tulsa and we had the blessing of sharing a communion service at the church as well as a Baptismal service on Sunday, July 29th. The baptism service was an amazing time. Those being baptized gave such wonderful testimonies of the work of Christ in their lives and afterword the entire church gathered on the beach while Brother Doug and our own Nelson Osorto baptized each person in the warm waters of the Gulf. The worship team from the church sang after each baptism as those baptized walked out of the ocean and back to the beach and together we all celebrated the newness of life we find in Christ.
