Another Baptism Last Night – Congrats to Genny

Excited for¬†Genny – another member of the Lake Merced Church of Christ college group baptized into Christ on January 13, 2010. ūüôā

After the baptism our group went out to eat at a local restaurant where a waitress carrying a drink tray spilled nearly the entire thing on Jodie, and a few minutes later a waiter spilled a bowl of salsa on Nathaniel. What are the odds?!?

So in addition to Genny’s baptism at the church, we had two more baptisms at the restaurant. I guess you could say we had three baptisms last night, and two of them were hilarious. Ha!

Anyway, we’re all very excited about Genny.¬†Congrats again! Hers is the fifth baptism we’ve had in the college ministry since late June.

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.

Airiel and I with our new sister, Sonia

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

Today was a good day!
