A new beginning and a new name for this young man

Cheryl Kruckemeyer captured an emotional moment and posted in her Facebook account of Tales of Tanzania. She accompanied us as we went out to do bush evangelism and took pictures and videos.

At one stop a small group gathered to hear the story of Jesus. Several came forward for baptism. The very last person to come forward was a young man who fell to his knees and spoke in Swahili to the pastor who baptized him. Pastor said this young man worships Islam and chooses to convert to Christianity. This is a big deal. His humility brought tears to my eyes as I witnessed this. He chose the name Emmanuel.
