We are still praising the Lord for Bo and 3 young men who were baptised in May while our team was here from Texas. This came after months of discipleship. A common practice in this country is for people to choose a Christian name to go by from the time they identify with the Body of Christ at baptism. When the 4 guys started considering names, Bo said he wanted a name of Jesus! I, Becky, will always call him "my Bo," but we now refer to him as Emmanuel! How appropriate! God has certainly been with us as He brought this precious boy into our lives!
