Graduation and Baptism Update

An update from Matt.....

I really thought that yesterday would be the highlight for me. We had the ten girls graduate, and I was so proud of them. They looked beautiful and so proud of their accomplishments. Their family and friends had gathered together. It was a wonderful day. Still, today topped that!

This afternoon we were able to baptize six people in the bathtub of LIA. It was the first time I had ever baptized in a bathtub, but it was so powerful. We talked about how they were leaving their old lives and now were found completely in Christ. These women knew what we were saying and felt so much emotion as they came out of the water. It was a beautiful time together. After the baptism, all the rest of the women gathered together for a celebration. There was singing, eating, and celebrating this life changing weekend. It is such an honor to be here. Thanks for all the prayers and support.
