100 Baptisms in Bhutan
“100 plus Baptisms in the [mountains] of Bhutan!” came a text from our BTJ partnering team in Asia this morning.
For security reasons, details of the baptism cannot be released, but we rejoice with our new brothers and sisters in the Lord.
According to the Joshua Project, there are currently 75 different ethnic groups that live in Bhutan and they are 96% unreached. The overwhelming majority of the people groups living in Bhutan are completely unreached, meaning they have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and do not have anyone living among them who can share it with them.
Bhutan is a Buddhist nation which also ranks high on the list for the persecution of Christians, meaning that the new believers who were just baptized over the weekend will see the manifestation of Jesus’ promise when He said, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.” John 15:18-20a
Oh I always wanted to get baptized like this but in a River like John the Baptist did to Jesus in a great movie by a Christian Movie maker Director Douglas James Vail a young awesome movie maker where he shows at the beginning of the movie in XL:The Tempation of Christ in the beginning of the movie John the Baptist dunks Jesus in the River and Baptizes him. Douglas James Newest Movie is Peace River but when Douglas kept on emailing me to see it my cyber bullyier Timothy aka Josh Harmon a CIA man kept on blocking me from watching it
