Ibrahim trains many leaders of house groups in how to follow the Lord Jesus. He has seen breakthroughs, with some groups of new believers being baptized. Many new believers come from the Orthodox church and were baptized as babies; because of that, most new believers don’t see the need to be baptized again. However, through Ibrahim’s and the small group leaders’ faithful discipleship, house groups in a few villages are obeying and are following Jesus’ example and teaching regarding baptism. Praise God! Please pray for more Orthodox-background believers to accept this teaching and be baptized. Pray for the leaders of house groups to teach their people about the need to obey Jesus’ command to “go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19 ESV).
