On Sunday, we at Casa Shalom had the great privilege of seeing 7 of our young men baptized in water in the name of the Father, the,Son and the Holy Spirit. The young man being baptized in this video is Martin, age 16. Martin is an indigenous Mayan Indian. His grandfather was the Mayan priest/shaman for their village, and as a small boy, Martin was being groomed to be the next village shaman. He participated in many pagan rituals, including animal sacrifices to the Mayan gods. After coming to Casa Shalom as a boy, Martin accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and renounced his Mayan religion. Today, Martin stood in front of the church and publicly declared that he is a follower of Christ. From a future pagan priest to a baptized Christ-follower! Praise the Lord! Watch for more info about the baptism in the coming days.
