OYC: Three New Brothers Featured

Wednesday, 11 October 2017 21:06

God really did promise that the harvest is plentiful! Last month, one of our One Year Challenge sites saw three baptisms in the space of two weekends. These new brothers were all met by brothers and sisters on a One Year Challenge. Jerry and Howard (right, top and bottom) were baptized on the same Sunday within minutes of each other. Connor (left) was baptized the next weekend. All of them are OYC Three Brothersstudents at the same university.

If we are in Christ, we are also created to do good works (Ephesians 2:10). The week after he was baptized, Jerry volunteered to serve with a group of disciples at an elderly home in a city near his OYC site. As a new disciple, he cared for the elderly with love and a spiritual vision — all possible because God is gracious and he rewarded the faith of the brothers and sisters on the One Year Challenge. To God be the glory, amen!
