(Berea Internacional) Billings Montana USA January 15, 2017 The battalion of Billings, Montana witnessed the beginning of God’s promise as it was fulfilled. Our brother McKinley Iron, member of the Crows, a Native American tribe, whom over the course of a year had opened his doors on a regular basis to hear the word of God by the brothers and sisters sent by the Apostle of Jesus Christ to these places. Each time the brothers visited, Mr. Iron would listen attentively, ask questions, and by the grace of God grow in his faith everyday. Not too long after, our brother expressed that he believed in the Apostle of the Lord, Naason Joaquin Garcia, and that he is a true servant of God and accepted his election. With continued visits and speaking to him of the gospel of Jesus Christ and his commandments, McKinley told the brothers he desired to get baptized. With much joy our brothers began planning and organizing, with the authority of an Apostle of Jesus Christ to hold what would be a celebration in the Heavens. The day had arrived and all of the sudden Mr. McKinley was no where to be found. The laborers went to his home to see if he was alright and a family member opened the door and informed us that Mr. McKinley had been rushed to the hospital. Saddened, the brothers postponed the celebration and prayed that our brother would come out of the hospital in good health. After Mr. Iron had returned to his home a few weeks later, he informed us that 80 percent of his heart had stopped functioning and was at a dire point in his life. However, that did not change his desire; it only made him realize how Satan had placed an obstacle in his path to prohibit him from entering the Baptismal Waters. The youth would visit brother McKinley continuously , praying with him, holding consecrations in his home, so that God would be the one to restore his health. Glory be to the name of the Lord because months later brother McKinley informed us that his latest doctors exam was different from his last visit. He told us his heart had recovered 100 percent and the doctors were surprised at this occurrence. Brother McKinley knew it was not a coincidence or “good luck”, rather as he had stated many times, he knew his time would one day end and he said to the brothers, “I am ready to be baptized, I want to be baptized.” The group of laborers called the Jurisdictional Pastor and so they were planned. In constant consecration, our God allowed us to reach the day of January 15, 2018, where the first soul in the city of Billings descended into the baptismal waters by the authority of an authentic man of God and reached that first step of obedience. Our brother was welcomed to the family of Christ, and the visitors we had that day marveled at the act that had taken place. Blessed be the name of the Lord, for a lost sheep was found by the Shepherd!
