Samaria Partnerships (USA)
Upstate New York
The first step in the partnership with the Hudson Baptist Association in Upstate New York is to understand what God is already doing in the lives of people in the area so that we can effectively partner with them in the years to come. We accomplish this by going on Vision Trips, and the second of these trips is almost here. Pray about this opportunity, explore the details below and, if you believe God is leading you to take part, contact Rick Hedger for more information.

“I contact brother Jordan, 45 years old man, more than a year. He was a heavy drinker and not open heart. But he often join our Bible study and Sunday service. My wife, Mary, and I are praying for him for a long time. At one of our Sunday services, I preached the crucified Christ and he responded. Then, I taught him Christian water baptism and baptized him. He testimonied one day that he rejected his friend’s request for drink, because he is a baptized Christian. Praise The Lord.”
“Brother Peterson is a 12 years old boy. He came to my Bible study class with his grandmother. He also came to the place where the two brothers are baptized. He asked me that how to baptize. I taught him the way of salvation and Christian water baptism. He accepted Jesus as his savior and confessed his faith. Therefore, I baptized him the next week.”
