The Angels Rejoiced!

Angels rejoiced late this spring as Pastor Martin Emslie baptized seven candidates in the Pocatello Adventist Church, in Idaho.

Five of the seven trace their decisions for baptism to the ministry of Dianne Emslie, who since January has served as a Bible worker in eastern Idaho.

“Luke 15:10 tells us that ‘there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents,” says Dianne Emslie.

“After church, we honored those who were baptized with an ‘Angel party.’ Potluck dinner, cards of welcome and congratulation, and a wrapped ‘Bible Handbook’ were given to each, and angel cake with the words, ‘The Angels are Rejoicing’ was served. It was truly a day of joy and celebration.” •
