Four New Members At Bethany

We welcome four new members of Bethany Primitive Baptist Church into full fellowship and privileges of being a member of this body of believers. Three have already been baptized and one will be baptized Sunday Aug. 14. It was a blessed day on August 7, 2011. Jaylen Wise (age 7) and Jackson Wise (age 7) were scheduled to be baptized, having asked for a home in the church and baptism on consecutive Sundays in July. As invitation for church membership was given at conclusion of service and before scheduled baptism, Josh Wise, father of Jaylen Wise, came forward asking for a home in the church. He was joyfully received and baptized with the other two, having brought his clothes. The church was overjoyed. After the baptism and during the right hand of fellowship, Jonathan Wise came and wanted to join the church and have a church home. Singing and handshake was stopped and Jonathan was received with much joy and is to be baptized on Sunday Aug. 14. Many tears were shed as prayers of many saints have surely been answered. This all started with one child who came forward desiring baptism. Reminds me of the scripture that says, “… and a little child shall lead them.” (Isa. 11:6). We surely are thankful for the blessings of the Lord and pray that these young members will be stedfast and faithful as they go forward in the service of the Lord. “Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalm 107:8).–August 8, 2011–Elder Larry Wise
