Four Students Baptism at Miramar Kinder Prep
Written by: Phillip E. L. Castell, Director, Communication, Publica Affairs & Religious Liberty | Friday, December 13, 2019
There was rejoicing at the Miramar Prep. School and no doubt in heaven as well, when four students gave their hearts to Jesus and were baptized on December 11, 2019.
The students were baptized, with the consent of their parents, after weeks of bible studies carried out by teachers from the school along with support of pastors and Bible workers.
Principal of the School, Mrs. Joette Jumpp, was elated that her students, aged 8 to 10 years, made the conscious decision to be baptized and that they were not coerced into making their decision. She was pleased to point out that there are several opportunities for the children to learn about Jesus from their teachers and highlighted that some who were baptized showed interest during the special week of prayer program.
“We had fall Week of Prayer which was conducted by different pastors and teachers from the school and we followed up with Bible classes with pastors and bible workers, “she said with pride.
Mrs. Jumpp was particularly pleased that 10 year old Omarion Nairne was willing to be baptized even though he was from a home without any Christian influence. She was also quick to point out that his mother, who is not a Christian, was overjoyed at her son’s decision.
“We will be continuing with Bible Studies on a weekly basis with these students and more and we are hopeful that sometime next year other baptisms will follow.”
The baptismal service was conducted by Pastors Joel Jumpp and Oshain Stewart. The service was conducted at the Morant Bay SDA Church in St. Thomas which is on the same compound as the school.
Let us keep these newly baptized students in our prayers, as the goal of education and redemption are still one, Salvation.
