Outreach Baptisms

Matthew Bassett, 20, New Zealand

[July 2018 DTS, Medical Compassion, Outreach location: Vanuatu]

One day in Vanuatu, we were in prayer as a team. I felt an impression from the Lord concerning the church we were to visit that morning; I felt that I was to meet a man named Emmanuel, and that I would baptize someone in the Holy Spirit. These impressions were shrouded by my own doubt, tiredness and possible dehydration and when we arrived at the church they were long forgotten.

The service that morning was 3 hours long. 3 hours of humidity, bugs and an uncomfortable wooden seat. Feeling knackered, we moved into a time of ministry and the men of the church came to me for prayer as I was the only male from our team of seven.

To cut a long story short, inevitably, the first man to come forward was named Emmanuel. Later, I was able to water baptize two young lads in a small muddy river, as well as praying for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and along the way ruining my only nice pants.

God is worthy of it all!
