Twenty Students Baptized at B.A.

During the fall weeks of prayer at the elementary and secondary divisions of Bahamas Academy (BA), twenty students responded to a call to surrender to the saving power of Jesus Christ.

Pastor D. Richard Henderson, assistant pastor of the Grants Town Seventh-day Adventist Church, conducted the services at the elementary division while Natalie Roberts, school chaplain, conducted those at the secondary division.

Subsequently, ten elementary students and ten secondary students, upon completing Bible classes to deepen their understanding of the Bible and the will of God in their lives, did not hesitate to follow the Lord all the way in baptism on Friday, May 17, 2013. With smiles on their faces and cameras in their hands, parents came to the Berea Seventh-day Adventist Church to witness this most important milestone in their children’s spiritual growth.

Pastor Paul Scavella, president of the South Bahamas Conference of Seventh-day Adventists (SBC) and Bahamas Academy school board chairman; Mrs. Joan Scavella, education director of SBC; Mrs. Elmore Jacques, vice principal of the elementary division; and a representation from the faculty and staff of BA all shared in the moment.

Pastor Scavella encouraged the students to pray and ask God for strength, because all the temptations and trials that they have been faced with will not automatically disappear after baptism. He continued by explaining that constant communication with Jesus through prayer is vital to overcoming temptation and that the good news is that Jesus is always there.

Let us continue to pray for and support our children as well as our school, Bahamas Academy.
