 Baptism Preparations in March

One of the privileges of my role is preparing adults for baptism.  Adults come with stories of their journey to faith in Christ and I get to hear them as we sit to prepare for baptism.  Those stories are rooted in places around the world that lead to Eindhoven and the request to be baptised in Trinity Church.

In the month of March I am preparing three adults for Baptism.  These will happen on Easter Sunday and later in the Spring.   The 'candidates for baptism' as they may be formally described are, Olivia Roach, Cathy 林茵 and Cathleen 郭志   

The picture below shows a preparation session at the home of Chunyan [Sophia] Steketee with Cathy and Cathleen and Chunyan's Mother who came to faith in Christ and was baptised in China a year ago.  Chunyan serves as hostess and translator while others care for children in the next room.
