Easter Celebration

By Pastor Walter Ries, Jr.

ImageEaster Sunday was a day of much rejoicing – both in the joy of our Risen Savior, and also in the joy of new life through holy baptism, as 6 were baptized in Palmar Arriba, and another 7 in Las Americas.  Confirmations were celebrated also in both missions (6 in Palmar and 6 in Las Americas), and adding still more to our joy on this Sunday, the wedding of Wuendy and Mauri was celebrated in Las Americas. 

 

Mauri and Wuendy saw the service begin with new life in Christ as their three children were baptized.  Later, Mauri, father and husband, professed his faith, repeating his baptismal vows in the rite of confirmation.  Close to the end of the service, he gave his marriage vows to Wuendy, who had been confirmed in the Christian faith several months earlier.  Salvation has come to this house today! Truly, the Risen Christ is in this place giving forgiveness, new life, and salvation to those who have heard Him in His Word and believed in Him!  Afterwards, the church celebrated one of its first meals together with plenty of food for the 150 who had gathered to celebrate the new life that is ours in our Risen Savior.
