Standing Room Only

Forty-five candidates—39 by baptism and six by profession of faith—were welcomed into Adventist Church fellowship at the conclusion of recent evangelistic meetings conducted by Lyle and Peggy Albrecht in Sutherlin, Ore.

At the Saturday-evening baptismal service, family and friends crowded into all available areas of the church, spilling into the foyer and standing along the sanctuary’s walls.

Richard Harbour, local pastor, and retired pastor, Charles Todd, assisted the Albrechts.

The candidates have joined various Adventist congregations in the area, including Sutherlin, Glide, Yoncalla, Winston, Canyonville, and Roseburg.

Other attendees said they planned to be baptized in the near future. •
