We praise God that on Sabbath 2nd of April, 2011 Sr Jessica Brown made her covenant with the Lord through baptism at Woodgate Beach, QLD (near Childers).
Family, friends and church members came from as far south as Sydney and as far north as Mackay to witness the event. Sabbath services were held at Childers, followed by a fellowship lunch. As the Profession of Faith meeting commenced word came through that strong rain had begun falling at the planned baptismal site. We completed the meeting and made our way down to Woodgate Beach. In answer to our prayers, the rain stopped in time for the baptism to go ahead. Though the sky was grey and overcast, we noted a distinct bright glow of sunlight appear through a break in the cloud cover. We could not help but think of that day 2000 years ago when the heavens opened and the Holy Spirit descended in the form of a dove upon our Saviour Jesus.
It was a lovely day and one Sr Jessica will always remember as having a special blessing. Not only did she make her covenant with the Lord on that day, it was also her birthday. Our prayers are with her as she commences her new life in Jesus Christ.
