Spiritual Twins!!!

Edwin & Dale

We are so happy to inform you that two young men have decided to give their lives to God! Richard had the privilege of baptising them into Christ on Friday evening, May 27.

Dale has been attending the youth club for several years and attended Camp Heatherbell for the first time this summer. Since then he has been a regular at youth weekends and all other youth events. He has been involved in Richard’s weekly boy’s Bible studies as well. Dale decided he wanted to have a special Bible study last week, and made the statement “I want to become a Christian.” We met with Dale’s mother to alleviate some of her concerns, and she was happy that he made this decision on his own. Dale’s mom and siblings were also there to see his baptism! Pray for Dale as he strives to be an example to his family.

Edwin has been attending the congregation in East Kilbride with his family for several years since they moved to the UK from Ghana. He comes from a family of wonderful and faithful Christians who are great workers in the church here. He is also heavily involved in all the youth events. Edwin has been asking many questions about becoming a Christian lately, and has been discussing it and thinking about it for some time. He is a fantastic young man and we are so happy to have him as part of the body!

Dale and Edwin are not only spiritual twins, but their physical birthdays are only one day apart and are this week! We were so proud as we heard them both lead their first prayers at the youth devotional following their baptisms. We look forward to seeing what these young men contribute to the Kingdom!

  1. Richard, how wonderful theat these two young men have decided to give thier all to God. We continue to remember you and your work in our prayers. May God continue to bless you and Mary in your efforts.

  2. Wonderful news. Admonish them to memorize and follow these Scriptures as major guidelines for their lives of service to Christ. “And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2 “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity…Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.” 1 Timothy 4:12,16

  3. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! What great and exciting news about two new brothers in Christ!
