Jesus Revolution of the Heart

22 May 2023

Karen State, Burma

Dear friends,

On 22 May 2023, one of our young Rangers, named Blade, asked to be baptized. He said he could feel God‘s warmth ever since he joined the training a year ago. He had watched people be baptized, he felt God‘s presence when people prayed, and he wanted it for himself. At first, he said, he didn’t believe in anything or any religion. As he began to open his heart, he began to feel the warmth and love of God. He started thinking about how to be baptized, and praying. He could feel the presence of God. He wanted to change his life and become a follower of Jesus.

Last night we showed a movie in camp, a new movie called “Jesus Revolution.“ It’s about a revival in the US, especially among the hippies in the late ’60s and early ’70s. He said, “I watched that movie and I could feel God‘s presence and love. And when I saw the young people getting baptized, I knew I had to do it. I wanted to be baptized right away!” Right after the movie he wanted to be baptized, but it was already late at night. Then the next day he wanted to jump right in the water, but he talked to another Ranger who is a Christian and they prayed together. They came to me and Blade asked, “Can I be baptized today?“

“Yes!” I replied, and we went down to the river by camp and baptized him. We were all so happy. Here are photos of Blade  and his baptism here in camp. Thank you for praying for him as he is part of God’s kingdom of love, on earth and in heaven.

Thanks and God bless you,

Dave, family and FBR
