June was reached out by Apo, a disciple from Indonesia who came to Kuantan to work. She was met by him while doing her part time job in Megamall, one of the main shopping malls in this East Coast town. She accepted the invitation to a Bible Talk, and from therein, studied the Bible all the way until the finishing line. Teluk Cempedak, the main beach in Kuantan, was the chosen venue. On that day, not only did Heaven rejoice; her whole family came to give her support and witness the baptism.
Sunday worship in Kuantan. Thanks to Kok Meng, one of the pioneers of the Kuantan mission team, a house was found and rented at an affordable rate to serve as the cornerstone of the Kuantan church.

(Singing) Wade…in the water, wade in the water children, wade in the water…woooh God's gonna trouble the water!
Just as Jesus was buried for three days, so will Christians be fully submerged in water for baptism.
