Baptized in a Spa!

Elaine Kubler became a Seventh-day Adventist Christian 30 years ago. Ever since, she has prayed for her husband, Howard Kubler, but Friday night ball games were too important to him.

Two years ago, Howard was debilitated with a severe stroke on his right side. Elaine prayed and prayed for a miracle for her then 78-year-old husband, who was told that he would never get out of his bed and leave the nursing home. But Elaine would not accept this verdict and kept working with Howard's paralyzed arm and leg.

Still debilitated, but able to walk with a walker and Elaine's help, Elaine cares for him at home. Howard has now given his heart fully to the Lord and requested baptism.

Because it wasn't possible for Howard to be baptized in the church's baptismal tank, his friends arranged for him to be baptized in a spa by Pastor Warren Blanck and retired Pastor Vernon Chase.

Don’t give up on your loved ones that need the Lord. Keep praying!
