A long-prayed-for baptism

In the Czech Republic, family, friends gather to witness Tomas Mikula give his life to Christ.

Marie Mikulova, in the wheelchair, didn’t let foot surgery stop her from watching her brother get baptized. Her family helped her along the path to the lake to join nearly 50 friends and family members of Tomas Mikula as he gave his life to Christ near the city of Olomouc, Czech Republic. 

“It was a momentous occasion for him — and for those of us who have prayed for this for a long time,” said Joshua Beall, a member of a mission team in Olomouc, “and it served as a strong example to several others there who are not yet Christians, but whose hearts are continually being softened.” (PHOTO PROVIDED)
