Another Pastoral Epistle 5-23-18

Hi, EBC family!  We received some encouraging news in an update from the Callahans this week as they work with the Iski people. The following is an excerpt from Seth’s most recent blog post.  Here is the link to read the full post:

We’re Going to See a Baptism!*

Pray for this family as they bring the good news to the Iski people and for their journey back home for a much needed rest!

Remember, Be Strong and Courageous, Pastor Brian

“Feel free to celebrate with us as we thank the Lord for these Iski brothers and sisters! Just over one year ago, these dear friends told us that they were clueless as to what the message of the Bible was. They were confused about life, and terrified of death. And yet, yesterday, after sitting under the teaching of God’s Word for a year, in their mother-tongue, 83 individuals were able to stand in a river, and declare to those gathered on the bank that they have been saved by the blood of Christ, and are children of God!

What a truly beautiful day!

Please continue to pray for these believers who have publicly declared their faith, as well as those others who are still struggling to fully understand the message of the cross and the meaning of baptism.”  -Seth Callahan
