What a glorious morning on the Amazon! Shortly after sunrise at exactly 6:15 A.M. the Linda Esperanca came to a gradual stop. On a secluded beach surrounded by red rocky cliffs our youngest member of the mission team was baptised in the Amazon River. Nine-year-old Megan Nicole Hudson was immersed in the water in Christian baptism by her father, Dr. Kevin Hudson. Megan gave her heart to Jesus when she was six years old, but she chose this special time and place to show the world the picture of her decision to follow her Savior. Megan has been one of the hardest workers on this trip. She did not come to play. She came to serve. She has the sweetest spirit and the most willing heart. Cecil Jackson prayed for Megan following the baptism. Members of the mission team clapped and cheered as they looked on. We all look forward to watching Megan grow and to see how God will use her for His glory.
We will spend the rest of this day moving toward Manaus. We will have a blast shooting balloons filled with candy (bonbons), little toys, and Portuguese Scriptures to the people who live along the river. We use a giant sling shot to send them great distances.
The CWBC Amazon Mission Trip is coming to a close. God bless you all for caring enough to read our blog! Ciao!
