At about eight-thirty am on Sunday morning, the twenty-fifth of January, those members of StoneHouse Family desiring baptism, gathered together in front of our Nakuru gathering place, for a road trip to the ‘Waters of Life’ in Kamwaura, Kenya.
We were only ten minutes into our thirty minute trip, when one of our cars broke down. There is an unwritten law in Kenya, that if you’re traveling in more than a two car caravan, one of them must break down along the way.
But, after a little tinkering, we were up and running and quickly arrived at our gathering place in Kamwaura.
Our family in Kamwaura, welcomed us with open arms and we all broke out praising our Father for what was about to happen.
After a few testimonies and some brief sharing about baptism,
We all headed down to the river. Some were singing, some laughing and some were sharing the excitement with each other. Kamwaura residents were intrigued and some followed us to the river
Karanja, our overseer in Kamwaura, was the first in the water to make sure all was safe.
Then as everyone looked on the first to enter Christ through baptism (Romans 6:3, Galatians 3:27), was our beloved James. He and others, like first century Apollos, confessed that they had only known the baptism of John and desired to have a true Christian baptism. (Acts 18:24, 25)
Then one after the other, our leading men came to the ‘Waters of Life’.
Following those precious men of God, came all, who from that day forward, desired to live only as disciple’s of Jesus Christ. Praise God, the gospel of Jesus Christ is being restored.
After the baptism, we all returned to brother Karanja’s house and ate corporate love meal together.
It was a glorious day. Pray for us, that this wonderful revival of scriptural living continue! The StoneHouse Family.
