In a dirty river, they were washed in the blood!


Yesterday we had a great day at church!  We had 14 people decide to be baptized.  So, we all traipsed off to the river to see the big event.  The Turkwel river is flowing due to rains down country.  So, we found a spot where it was deep enough to baptize and the church elders began to baptize people.  Yes, the river was muddy and dirty, but the people came up shiny clean having been washed in the blood of Jesus our Savior.  The first to be baptized was Akai.  She was born the year I moved to Lodwar ('97) and is the daughter of my house worker and one of my guards.  She has been in and out of my house ever since then.  I was so proud and happy!  Enjoy the pictures!
