Through the help and mercy of the Almighty God, Church members from the Ecclesiastical District of Tokyo, Japan were unhindered in their active participation in the intensive works of propagation despite difficult situations. As a proof of the brethren’s earnest desire to uphold this sacred duty, the district conducted a baptism on December 25, 2020 at the house of worship of Saitama Local Congregation.
Brother Manny Benedicto, district supervising minister, taught the words of God to the candidates before they received their baptism. Through the Holy Scriptures, he emphasized the great importance of receiving baptism in the true Church for people to be saved on the Day of Judgment.
“We all know that life has not been easy for people these days because of the pandemic. Thanks to God, this has not hindered us from conducting baptisms for many people to become members of the Church Of Christ and to serve our Lord God,” Brother Benedicto said in an interview.
Embracing the true Christian faith, newly baptized members expressed their heartfelt thanks to God for the wonderful blessing they have received before the year 2020 ended.
The brethren made sure to follow safety protocols throughout the holy gathering. – With reports from INC News Section
