The Bible assures us that there is joy in heaven over one sinner that repents, and Sabbath, May 09, 2009 was a joyous day indeed for the angels in heaven, as well as the members of Margate, but especially for the Lypher and Wallace families. The eldest Lypher child, Brandon, and Bro (name), Sis Donna Wallace’s husband, were getting baptized after much studying and waiting.
The Lypher family is a fine example of how many may be won to Christ through Personal Ministries. Bro (name) Lypher, a former Seventh-day Adventist, was first invited to Margate by (name). Soon, he was attending church regularly, accompanied sometimes by his wife and three children. In (month) 2008, Bro Lypher publicly declared his acceptance and allegiance to Jesus as his Saviour by being baptized. His wife and children, along with the members of the church, were overjoyed. Soon, young Brandon indicated that he wanted to follow his dad’s example. He studied with (name) for a period of (time), and finally, on May 09, his desire was fulfilled and he was baptized. The joyous event was witnessed by his parents, siblings and a rejoicing congregation.
Bro. Wallace’s story is quite similar. A former Seventh-day Adventist Christian, he was led back to Christ by the example of his wife, Sis. (Donna??) Wallace, who was also baptized into the church last year. She was invited by (name), and studied with (name). Today, she is ecstatic that she is able to share the happiness she has found in Christ with her husband, as they worship and praise him together.
