Mike Underhill: "We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!" (Daniel 9:18-19) Warm greetings from San Francisco!
Since leading the mission team to San Francisco, I've seen the many mistakes I've made and how many ways I personally have failed in building the church here. But in light of that, "because of [the Lord's] great mercy," God has allowed us to have two men baptized into His Kingdom! Aaron Garret, a man with an amazing love for God and who's also a great basketball player, was baptized! He overcame his fear of water by practicing all week being immersed in different pools!
Aaron perfects his baptism water entry because
this time it's for real!
Also Ben Zamora, a teen who was adopted at the age of five by the Zamora family (our Shepherding Couple-in-Training here in SF), was baptized! He has radically changed these past two weeks and become a true man of God! The Lord has been so merciful to bless the church here even because of HIS great love and mercy! I'm forever grateful!
Half the church goes out to baptize Ben!
One of the Kingdom dreams of the Zimoras comes
true as they were able to baptize
their adopted son Ben!
