Come down to the river
The water ran swiftly over the pebbles on the riverbed. It was the dry season, and the river was shallow. This didn’t matter to a small group of believers who had gathered on the bank of the river.
With songs and celebration, several new believers were baptized. Since the water was only knee deep, this baptism didn’t look quite the same as one in the baptistry of a church in the United States, but the rejoicing was just as great.
Praise God for the firstfruits of a harvest among the Jahanka people, as there are now close to 20 Jahanka believers in six different locations, with eight of them having been baptized in February. Pray for these newest believers as they grow in Christ and become salt and light in their West African communities. Pray for strong churches to form in each of these communities.
