Picture of the Day from Dave Alan Black

On his website/blog, David Alan Black continues to share stories and pictures from the mission field (Thanks, Dave).  I found the following on his site.  Coming from that region of the world, it is even more meaningful:

 

“Here, in a river setting, a young girl went under water baptism, giving testimony that she was buried with Christ, and raised with Him into newness of living. With this simple ritual, she declare that Jesus, and Jesus alone, is her Savior and Lord. This young girl is ‘Adhivassi’; this is a general term for the original tribes of India. About 68 million people belong to this group of people. Their heritage is rich but today they are regarded with low esteem, somewhat on the periphery of Indian society.”  (more here)

This is beautiful!
