Baptism at Metropolitan Seventh-day Adventist Church

April 11, 2023

MISSOURI CITY, TEX. – Dec. 17, 2022, was a special day at the Metropolitan Seventh-day Adventist Church. Three souls have given their lives to Jesus Christ: Rouenn Baysa, Joshua Escasinas and Lissett Cardona. 

Rouenn’s mom shared that he had been begging to be baptized for over a year. Although both she and her husband thought Rouenn was too young to make that decision, the mother could only hear these words in her head, “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of Heaven.” “We could not bring ourselves to say no. She was so very excited,” said the mother. Rouenn Baysa was so happy to be baptized by her grandfather Rolando Baysa, pastor of the Metropolitan church. 

Joshua Escasinas, an active Pathfinder, decided to accept Jesus as his guide and to become a role model to his sister and peers. After he rose up from the water, his co-Pathfinders cheered so loudly with joy!

Witnessing Lissett Cardona’s baptism were her husband and daughter. “I want to have a better relationship with God and be a good role model for my daughter,” said Cardona.

We pray for these three souls who have given their lives to Jesus that they may be nurtured as they walk with Him each day.
