Diamond Lake Couple Baptized
Mieczyslaw "Mike" and Mickie Babij were baptized on April 8 at the Newport Church.
Mike grew up in Poland as a Roman Catholic and came to America at 21. Mike and his wife Mickie met in 1992 and married in 1996. They moved to Washington because of Mickie’s “special needs” daughter. Recognizing a spiritual need, this couple asked God for guidance and began to check out several churches.
In searching for a well driller for their property, they ran across Jim and Leila Eiseman. The Eisemans left two books in their mailbox, Bible Readings for the Home, and The Great Controversy, which led them to take Bible studies by mail.
After studying and with the help of spiritual mentors, Patti and Dale Duerksen, Mike and Mickie prepared for baptism with Len Atkins, Newport Church pastor.
