Something just happened that leaves me absolutely stunned. I've never had anything similar happen. I don't know what to feel at the same time as having very mixed emotions. (Figure that one out!) We have a family of four (the U.s) in our church, saved through our ministry. They've been saved for a few years but not ready for baptism for awhile after they saved. There was an idolatry issue, since her parents, whith who they live, have a Buddhist idol shelf in the home. This is a very typical situation in Japan. I haven't asked them about baptism for several years, and that is my fault, in retrospect. I should have been talking to them about it periodically. I did feel led last week, though, to write a letter to the U.s saying I was praying for them to be baptized soon--thinking of course that I would continue to press the issue if they said no. At any rate, there is another family (the K.s) who attends only our evening English service but not the morning Japanese service, and are not members. In the morning they go to the local Japanese equivalent of the SBC, where the new pastor doesn't even believe in Hell. But they are good folks, love the Lord and have been a blessing to us and our church folk. Both parents graduated from a pretty good Bible school in the States, though not a Baptist one. However, they have not been in full time service for many years. This morning I got a phone call from Mr. K. saying they had gotten a phone call from the U.s saying they wanted to be baptized. So Mr. K. trotted over and baptized all four of the U. family in their bathtub. Tomorrow we have a Ladies' Bible Study in the morning at which Mrs. K. and Mrs. U. and her junior high daughter S. will be. Mrs. F. will also be there, a lost lady. So now what do I do? What do I feel? What do I say to the two families?
