Any time that New Years Day falls on a Sunday, church attendance in Japan is a bit lower than usual. The reason for this is that this is the biggest family holiday of the year in Japan, so many people have family obligations. However, this year at Oasis Church, our New Years worship service was packed. Why? Because we had three young men getting baptized, that's why! We started our gatherign with worship and a short teaching time on baptism. This was followed by testimonies and the baptisms. This occasion was extra special because it was the first time that we have done a baptism indoors. We found a big swimming pool that we set up in Noji's living room that worked better than we could have imagined. This was followed by a wonderful potluck lunch. What a great way to start 2017!
