This Saturday while on visitation, we spent an hour talking to a young couple about the gospel. The family had visited our church several weeks ago, but neither had made a decision to accept Christ.
During the conversation, the lady asked about the name of our church. She said, “I noticed that the church is a Baptist church… is that because you follow the teachings of John the Baptist?” I almost laughed at the simple, sincere but quit bizarre question.
After summarizing centuries of Baptist history into a minute answer, she understood more of who we are – Bible-believing followers of Christ. There is no doubt that we need more gospel preaching churches in Chile!
By the way, the woman got saved! We’re still praying for the husband…
