Brother and Sister Baptized at Gladstone Park Church

Brother and sister Joe and Abby Azrak were baptized at the Gladstone Park (Ore.) Church during the Sabbath worship hour Nov. 19, 2011, by Bob Uhrig, Gladstone Park Church pastor.

"I would like to know more about the judgment," Joe told Uhrig during their studies together. This inspired the pastor to do some in-depth study, and he even preached a sermon, providing the answer.

Joe and Abby each met with Uhrig for baptismal studies during the spring of 2011. They made personal decisions near the same time, so being baptized on the same day seemed a natural choice.

Joe, 16, is a sophomore at Columbia Adventist Academy (in Battle Ground, Wash.), and Abby, 12, is a seventh-grader at Rivergate Adventist Elementary School (in Gladstone).

Mark and Lori Azrak, Joe and Abby's parents, planned a full day with family and friends to celebrate the commitment their children made.
