Jovial, just like his name, is a youth who is full of joy and laughter. He has been studying the bible for almost a year to learn what it means to follow Jesus. The one thing that I appreciate about him is his humility. Whenever we point out to him things that he has to repent of, he quickly makes the effort to change.
Xavier started to diligently study the bible about a year ago. According to Pang, his mentor, Xavier was eager. He would travel anywhere just to meet Pang to do his bible studies. One of his biggest challenge was to be courageous to face any form of persecution. On Jan 15th, Xavier made the decision to be bold to make Jesus the Lord of his life.
We celebrate the New Year with Joshua when he made Jesus Lord of his life. I appreciate Joshua for his eagerness to learn and change. He frequently asked to study the bible so that he can know God better. His mother noted that he has more positive attitudes at home. Below are the videos of the sharing for Joshua and his baptism.
