Baptisms in Kosovo

Baptisms in Kosovo are done right in the middle of public places, not unlike the way the early believers did it.  It really doesn’t get any better than this! This is the third baptism service I’ve attended in three years.  But it is the first where I had the opportunity to participate!  I had the privilege of baptising two of our young believers from Gjilan.

At this baptism/picnic people started asking questions as we put on these traditional gowns (they are as much a convenience as anything else).  It is a fantastic opportunity for talking to people about what Christianity really means.  Christianity is about life, and hope and renewal!  Great stuff.
