minutes before I arrived the ship, a ship chandler called me and told me
the captain is a Christian and he wanted to see a pastor and he wanted
to getbaptized if possible. I got on the ship, had met with the captain
and explained a little bit about baptism to him. He called out the chief
mate, the second mate and the third mate to his room and asked me to
preach to them. I briefly shared the Gospel to them and asked them
to received Jesus into their hearts. We simply did the salvation prayer
and they accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Then I
baptized the captain in front of his comrades. Praise the Lord.
Grace be with you. (1Ti. 6:21)
