While we were away from the rainforest, God continued to work among the believers. Someone believed the gospel and was baptized Easter Sunday. This was a Malagasy baptizing a Malagasy.
Then on Sunday Tim worshiped in Ankazotsara. When he arrived he learned that FIVE more had believed the gospel and were ready to be baptized. So after worship we went to the river where Ramano baptized all five believers.
While we are certainly not numbers driven, I am amazed at the power of gospel. Where the gospel is rightly preached, the dead in their sins and trespasses cannot remain dead forever when the gift of faith is given.
