We ventured into the bush on motorcycles farther than what you could walk. There we met a very brave young man. His name was David. Despite his name, he had never heard the Gospel before. In fact, I don’t believe anyone in his village had heard the whole Gospel before. When we told David the Good News, he was overjoyed to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. Soon, others from his tribe started to gather around and watch us. An old man came near and introduced himself as the Village Elder (leader)–David’s father. This whole time, we had been speaking to David without even recognizing he was the leaders son. The Village Elder told his people, “don’t accept their baptism.” Soon, all those who accepted Christ, backed down and said they wouldn’t be baptized. But then there was a commotion. David had stood up to his father and said “yes, I understand, but there is something inside of me telling me I must do it.” So, soon after accepting Christ, David was baptized in front of his whole village in defiance to all the village elders. Below is a picture of him being baptized. The man in the water baptizing him is the Chief from a neighboring territory (who just happens to be a well educated pastor). It was a very beautiful picture. Because David took a stand, it opened a door for others to do the same thing.
