Lunch time conversation:
“Francisca wants to be baptize,” Albert’s mom shared. She came from the mountain where she lived. “Can we baptize her today?”
“Just what did you do, why it’s easier for you to just ask people to be baptize?” Her daughter inquired.
“Well, they believe in me and whatever I say to them they will believe it also.” She replied.
“Why, what did you just said anyway?” I ask while cooking eggplant for lunch.
“I told her that you must go through baptism so that your sins since while you were youth will be forgiven and you will be cleansed. Imagine how old you are now?”
Francisca is a widow already and over sixty years old.
“And how did Francisca replied?” I ask.
“‘That must be right because when I was a baby and baptized in a Catholic Church I have no idea what’s going on.’ Was Francisca’s reply.”
Catholics in my country has backgrounds of Jesus death on the cross. This makes more easier to let them believe in Jesus when you make them His disciples.
(On the right is Auling, Albert’s mother, whom he makes into a disciple one midnight. On the left is Analyn, Albert’s sister who has made some disciples as well. One who took this photo is Arlen, older sister of Analyn who made a lot of disciples that reach up to the 14th generation. Three of them were sent for two days to make disciples and they made five. Actually, we don’t intentionally sent disciples to make disciples, that happens only when planned out. But normally, as we ‘go along’ our daily routine here and there it just happens. As i always said, if one really knows his real job [make disciples] then other things are just temporary. You just happen to be a carpenter or a doctor or just a person cutting grasses on people’s lawns. You are a disciple-maker and you are aware of that every moment of your day. This is our life-style: makers of finest disciples who makes disciples!)
