It was a high Sabbath at Fort Myers Shores, Fla., Church when Pastor Robert Ferguson baptized seven candidates who recently finished Bible studies.

Three candidates for rebaptism each had different stories. One woman, who was already a member and baptized with her new husband, wanted to start their journey together with the Lord. Another felt the need to be rebaptized, so she asked her friend to join her. They met 24 years ago when they heard the Adventist message for the first time. Since then, they have seen each other through many of life’s misfortunes.

After the baptism, Pastor Ferguson shared his sermon, “The Joys of Life,” followed by a blessing of physical food and fellowship.
