Shane Belanger update (New Hampshire)

Dear Brethren,

I am happy to announce that on February 4th at 8:00 pm Raymond Keel was buried in the waters of baptism!  This was not an easy task due to the fact that Ray is burdened with many unique and challenging health issues.  Ray suffers from cellulitis as well as advanced diabetes, and is almost completely housebound except for his necessary routine trips to the doctor in order to receive his medical treatments.  Ray carries an oxygen tank with him at all times and his legs are tightly wrapped with ace bandages
that absolutely cannot get wet.  After studying with Ray for some time in his apartment, he became fully committed to the Gospel call.  With the help of Pete Farley, we wrapped him up in blankets and warm clothes, with oxygen tank in hand, and drove him the ¼ mile it took to get to the building, where a warm baptistery awaited him.  Ray’s eyes were aglow as he emerged from his water burial completely sin free.  All praise and glory to God for the amazing gift that He offers through Jesus Christ our Lord!
