Fall Baptism, My Favorite Opoka Activity
Twice a year we (Opoka "The Rock" Church) have baptisms in the Hashes swimming pool. It has become a blessed event since other churches use this occasion to baptize their people too and since all of the churches are so small, it gives us a great excuse to not only celebrate but to also get together and be family at one time, in one place!
This time a wonderful young woman, Zusza (Susan) was baptized. She is becoming a leader in our youth group! I look forward to more time with her!
Monika braved the cold water and being 8 months pregnant! She wanted this, so we invent a way to be "dunked" but not fully immersed!
After the baptism, we had lunch and then after that, the four served us communion. It was a blessed time and I cannot wait until May when we have our next one!
