Yesterday was a good day

It started Wednesday night last week after church. I got a phone call from a young man from our church asking questions about baptism, and his desire to set up a study time with me. I went to this yougn man’s house, and sat down and we studied the Word along with his mother, and his older brother. The young man wanting to get right with God decided to make his election and calling sure, by being baptized Sunday morning. His older brother, who I have been talking with for several months, was moved by his younger brother’s faith. We talked, and studied, and through tears he exclaimed he was ready to change his life too, and live for Christ. He was baptized after services on Sunday. The family was ecstatic. It was humbling to be a part of the process. To share the Gospel with young people, and then to see the “lilght bulb” go on as they eagerly desire to get right with God is just awesome. Yesterday was a good day.

And as if they day couldn’t get any better. It did.

Last nigt was our area schools prayer night. We go to each of our kid’s schools and have them gather around the flag pole and we pray for those students. It is a moving experience. Last night a group of 40 traveld about 100 miles to pray for students, and stuff as they school year gets underway. Thank you to my parents and the elders who made the evening special by being there with us.
