INCIDENTS IN THE WORK
“It Was Just Like a Marriage”
With faces beaming, six of our Jewish refugees went down into the baptismal waters and thus made public confession of their faith in their newly found Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. It was on the Lord’s Day morning of October 6th, and some of these desolated children of the house of Israel had been looking forward a long time to this event, as a mountain peak in life’s experiences. They had been robbed and despoiled of everything which makes for life’s material comforts; their life savings had been brutally taken from them, their homes had been destroyed, their very existence had been outlawed; in some cases families were separated for months at a time. But all these things now they counted as dross in the light of their newfound possession, everlasting peace and joy through the Lord Jesus Christ.
