The First Girl


One more student from Shimane University in Matsue has been baptized! However, she is the first girl, after three guys having been baptized since October last year. Motoi was the first one. Then Shinsei followed on May 31, Motoi's friend Yuuki on September 27, and finally Yuki on November 8. I said "finally", but hopefully not the last one!

島根大学のもう一人の学生は洗礼を受けました。去年の10月から4人目ですが、女子学生としては初めてです。
去年の10月は基君、今年の5月31日は新生君、また9月27日はゆうき君は順番に信仰に入って、洗礼の恵みに預かることができました。今回は女の子です。名前は土江由姫さんです。
4月から家のバイブル・クラブに熱心にも個人的な学びにも来たので、だいたい週2回私の家に来ました。私が6月帰国した後、何人かの人に聖書を教えてもらって、またKGKの夏期学校の参加によって、イエス様を信じるようになりました。
神様は様々な国や教派の人々を用いて、由姫さんを導いて下さいました。感謝します!

As Carmella and Scott write in their newsletter:

"Yuki’s salvation is a testimony to how different people from various countries and churches were all used, together, for God’s perfect plan. In addition to her host family in Florida, during her testimony she talked about receiving a Bible from the Gideons (in high school), us, Shinsei (from the Nazarene church, who took her to a Christian camp by a group similar to Campus Crusade or the Navigators), the Bible studies she had with the Norwegian missionary (Lutheran Church) for about 1-2 months, and the time and Bible studies since June that she has received from four Christians (another denomination) in her hometown (an hour from here). We really praise God for His wisdom and timing! "

神様の知恵やタイミングは素晴らしいですね。

4人の学生は今クリスチャンになりました。基くん、ゆうき君と由姫さんは松江ゴスペル・チャーチの教会員で、新生君は松江ナザレン教会の会員です。
Four of these students have now become Christians. Motoi, Yuuki and Yuki are members of Matsue Gospel Church, and Shinsei belongs to Matsue Nazarene Church.

Thanks to Carmella and Scott for pictures and good news!

Nokre ord på norsk til slutt: Det har vore dåp i Matsue igjen. Sidan oktober i fjor har tre studentar ved Shimane Universitet i Matsue blitt døypte. Yuki er hittil første jente, men vi håper sjølvsagt på fleire. Yuki Tsuchie vart døypt 8.november og er foreløpig den ferskaste kristne i studentgruppa som samlast til bøn og bibelstudium på Scott sitt kontor. Takk til Carmella og Scott for bilete og gode nyheiter.
