Another Baptism at Lake Merced Today – Sonia

Today was a good day.

A few months ago during our Wednesday night Bible study, a young lady pulled into our parking lot with steam coming out from under the hood of her car. We were in the midst of a devotional when Bull, a Lake Merced staff member, looked out the window and noticed someone was having car trouble.

That someone was Sonia – a college student.

Bull went out to meet her, invited her in to use the phone, and the Lake Merced members listened to her story and offered comfort in the midst of crisis. She was shortly thereafter introduced to our college ministry, and began attending our church. After taking her out to lunch and having her over for dinner a couple of times, Bible studies followed, and the rest is history.

Check out what she had to say today:


God had been working on Sonia’s heart even before she met us. While what happened with her car was an accident, I don’t believe it was an accident she was introduced to the Lake Merced Church that day in August.

We can’t wait to see what God is going to do with Sonia!

Today was a good day!

    Congratulations! It is encouraging to see how God uses his people to introduce others to him. It is a team effort to both teach and keep those that are baptized into Christ. Bull, you, Airiel, others in the college group and then the whole church that makes Sonia feel welcome and accepted. God bless you all!
