A Mother and Daughter Become Sisters!

Chelsea CalhounChelsea Calhoun was an incoming freshman at Georgia Tech when she was baptized on July 1. She invited her family up to Lake Acworth to witness her new birth into Christ. Her mother, Yoko Calhoun, was very touched and grateful for the changes she saw in Chelsea, and for the love and devotion she had seen the campus ministry show her daughter. When invited to examine the Scriptures for herself, Yoko jumped at the chance. She also began attending the Tuesday morning women’s Bible study and forged several friendships. With a very soft heart and an open mind, Yoko soon learned about God’s will for her life, repented, made Jesus Lord and was baptized on Thursday night, Jan. 22. Now, she and Chelsea are sisters in Christ! Yoko is full of love and gratitude and can’t wait ‘to show God’s love to everyone’. Please get to know Yoko. She is a gem of a woman!

Ginny Perlman is Baptized!

ginnyFor years the Hickmans and the Perlmans have been next door neighbors. Their children have played together and the Hickmans have built a wonderful friendship with the Perlmans; in fact, Ginny Perlman was comfortable enough to knock on the Hickmans’ door and ask if their family could come to visit our church! Kristi Hickman and Ginny joke that this past winter’s ice storms were sent just for them so that their friendship could grow even more as they were trapped at home with each other. Ginny studied the Bible with Kristi, Kim Dalla Venezia, Marti Chiapetta, Ènid Tchir, and Sarah Kodinsky and is very thankful for each of these women. Ginny and her husband Mitch have two wonderful sons and look forward to getting to know all of you! (Picture L-R: Énid Tchir, Kristi Hickman, Ginny Perlman, Marti Chiapetta, Kim Dalla Venezia)
