In early July, rejoicing and celebration resounded from Jinja, Uganda to the heights of heaven. 14 of the students at The Amazima School publicly declared their faith by choosing to be baptized! It was a joy, and one we could not wait to share with you!
All the students who were baptized
…having been raised with him in baptism and raised with him through your faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead.” Colossians 2:12
Pastor Daniel was moved to tears by the testimony Rizan shared just before entering the pool.
Ronald’s joy was contagious!
Some comments from our staff:
“These baptisms were the highlight of the year. Seriously, I have no words.”
– Kelly Miller, Dean of Student Life
“What a privilege to witness 14 students proclaim their faith in Jesus in front of their classmates and parents! We all rejoiced with them, but I can’t imagine the rejoicing in heaven.”
– Laura Beth Weier, Science teacher
We also wanted to share a small video with you — we know it’s not high quality, but we just couldn’t help sharing the joy and beauty of this day as soon as possible!
Thank you for joining us in rejoicing!
