Friendship Leads to Baptisms at Middleton Church
Jeff and Shelley Watson were baptized because of the personal witness of one of Shelley's classmates. A little over a year ago Shelley took a massage therapy class. Brittany Purcell Warren, a member of the Middleton Church, was also taking the class.
Warren and Watson became friends and soon Warren was sharing about her Adventist lifestyle and religious convictions. Later, the new friends introduced their husbands and the two couples began studying Bible topics together.
The Watsons' interest grew and at the request of the Warrens, Alvin Schnell, Middleton Church head elder, and his wife, Coral, began studying weekly with the Watson family.
Soon the Watsons began attending Sabbath School and church with their two children Jace and Summer. They were baptized June 10, 2006, at the Middleton Church.
