April’s baptism – college ministry plant in San Francisco going well :)

Remember Sonia – the girl who had a car wreck in front of our church building only to end up becoming a Christian (read all about that here)? Well, she introduced us to a friend – meet April:

April came with Sonia to the college group’s Bible class yesterday morning at Lake Merced where she expressed interest in being baptized.

“Do you guys do baptisms here?”

“Well, as a matter of fact we do.”

Airiel and I had everyone over to our house for lunch after church services as we do every week, and April hung out and studied the Bible with us for a couple of hours. In the end, she decided to commit her life to following Jesus.

April is an eighteen year old single mom with a beautiful little boy who enjoys playing with Naomi and Conrad. We had a great time with them yesterday, and look forward to more in the future.

In the three years leading up to our move to SF, Airiel and I prayed almost every night for the Lord to send people to us here whose hearts were prepared to receive Him, and He’s answering that prayer affirmatively. April’s is the sixth baptism we’ve had in our college ministry in the last little bit, and we’re anticipating more. Praise God!

All of these new people have plugged into the college ministry and larger church body sticking with us with the exception of one. We’re retaining just about everyone, building community, and continuing to disciple them.

The college ministry plant in San Francisco is bearing fruit, and it’s all God! 🙂
