And the Lord added to their number…

Today is a truly blessed day! Five people gave their lives to Christ, joining in His death through baptism to start a new life.

Gathered for Kapango baptisms

Gathered for Kapango baptisms

In the very young church plant in Kapango, we have spent the last month studying together what it means to become a Christian. These five are the first in this congregation to respond to the timeless gospel message. This morning a group of eighteen people gathered to travel to the water – since it is the end of the dry season, the closest suitable water is a small lake on the other side of town. There at the water’s edge, with many people and many angels looking on, God did His work and the Holy Spirit found a new home in five hearts. Your new sister’s name is Sol, and your new brothers are Avelino, António, João, and José.

Each of the new Christians received a Bible in accessible Portuguese, thanks to generous Christians in the U.S. If you would like to place more Bibles in the hands of Angolans who lack access to God’s Word, visit our Bibles for Angolans page.

Tomorrow, two young congregations – Lossambo and Kapango – will join together in a Sunday worship service of celebration and thanksgiving for the new additions to God’s church. Please join with them in prayer and thanksgiving to God!
