Alright what are we saying? This is episode 22, or 23? 23. Welcome to episode 23. We are in Jordan River- Yardenit. This is where Rhoda was baptized when she was? 11. Wow! And when I was baptized when I was 14. And today is a special event because my sister at the age of 12 has decided to follow Christ in baptism. So its a very special even for the family and few members from the church as well. SO we hope that you like this episode, its definitely very special and personal to us. This is not the same spot where John the baptist would baptize people in the New Testament. That spot is about 3 hours south drive from here, but the same river. But we are at the very beginning of the Jordan river. The dam of the Lake of Galilee is right here and the water comes out of it and flows in to the Jordan river. Yep! This is the start of it, we are at the top of
the Jordan River. Yep, we are. Okay. Alight Lets go swim. No. No!!! Babe, they’re gonna eat me! So this is the official baptism sight of Israel. You’ve Got a shop right above here where you can buy the white clothes for the pastor, for the person who gets baptized. We gotta a place here for the congregation to sit and pray and witness the baptism. The pastor is going to go into the water. The pastor is my father in law, Suhail. This is a wonderful event. And right after this, we are going to go up
and have BBQ. So stay, and watch this event with us. How do you feel? I feel so good. Singing “This is the day” in Arabic & Hebrew. Singing “I have decided to follow Jesus” in
Arabic.. I baptize you, my sister Susan in the name
of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Singing “Jesus set me free from Satan’s slavery” in Arabic.. Amen. Alright, upon her faith testimony and upon
her obeying the command of the Lord Jesus, I baptize you my daughter Joy, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. So that was it. That was the baptism of Joy and Susan. So it was very exciting and very beautiful. And now we are going to celebrate with some
Kabbobs. Yes, BBQ. BBQ.. Kabbobs. Israeli style. Wow!I can’t wait. We are going to north of TIberius. Are you excited? Oh yes me too. Can’t wait! By the way, this is Timothy from Toronto Canada. Hello, hello, nice to meet you all. And he’s here teaching English in Nazareth. Yeah, and its a lot of fun. Alright, lets do this. You’re not introducing me? By the way this is Rhoda, my sister in Christ, and my wife. There you go.
