Gathered at the shore of Lake Muhazi

A few weeks ago we had our second Baptism ceremony on a sunny Saturday morning and this time we decided to go to Lake Muhazi about 40 km outside Kigali. We hired 2 busses and pickup was at 9.00 am by our Church. Some who wished to come were disappointed and we ended up with 47 people at the lake. We arrived at 10.30 and had to take a number of boats to the other side as there were fewer reeds and less chance of snails carrying bilharzias (one of the many less desirable tropical diseases in this area).

We had 17 people who were baptized and it was a very joyous occasion. The busses and the boats reverberated with songs of praise. At church the following day we heard many powerful testimonies of God's wonderful work in bringing people into a life enriching relationship with Him.
