From sitting in front of the TV to standing in a Baptismal pool!
On Sabbath Nov 24 two men, Peter Dodds and Paul Turvey, were baptised in Papanui Seventh-day Adventist church. Both shared testimonies about the power of Adventist television. On the Sabbath, we celebrated the work of Hope Channel NZ and we celebrated the commitment of two people whose lives and faith have been changed by Hope Channel.
Peter first responded to Christ when invited to raise his hand by Billy Graham on television and soon found Hope Channel and found joy, a new life and an understanding of the Bible. Paul told us how he puts the volume up higher than he needs it when he is watching Hope Channel so his children and grandchildren can hear it and find the hope that has changed his life.
God changes lives, Hope Channel speaks and convicts when there is no one else available. So let us pray for Hope Channel as it extends the gospel beyond our influence and brings many more to faith in Christ in New Zealand.
