An evening baptism was followed the next Tuesday (a week ago) with a baptism of six young adults in the sea. “God is goooood!” writes Korinta planter Juris Rekis. Valdis Zilgalvis, the Baltic Union Conference president – who participated in baptising Martin and Liva, his son & daughter – said, “This baptism was the most exciting thing in my life!”
Then to add to the excitement, two days after the joy of this baptism, Juris Rekis and Regina Nestecka were united in marriage. All at the Korinta church plant were involved in the celebrations and rejoiced with their leaders on their wedding day. Juris, Regina and Aira Arina have been key leaders in fostering and building up Korinta.
Korinta church started two years ago – after Juris, Regina and Aira attended their first Church Planters X-Change in Sweden. This church plant is led by young people – with no paid pastor. Korinta has been officially organised with almost 50 baptised members – and earlier this year planned and held the first Baltic X-Change attended by 110 people who committed themselves to planting another 15 churches in the Baltic countries.
