One of the men being baptised was a recent convert. He and his whole family had decided last year to follow Christ after years of listening to the gospel. A few weeks ago, his wife's family came to take her and the children back, because of the man's faith in Christ. He was devastated, and tried without success to get them back.
Two days ago her family summonsed him, and asked him whether he was going to leave the way of Christ or not. He replied:
"All I want is my wife and children back. If you give them to me, I will take them home. If not, I will return home alone. But I cannot leave Christ who has given himself for me, and who has given me and my family new life."Yesterday his in-laws called him to come and collect his wife and children, and take them home.
