DECATUR, Ala(BNc) — Three prisoners were recently baptized into Christ at the Beltline church of Christ in Decatur, Alabama. Lisa, Ashley, and Cassandra were given permission by authorities to leave the jail for baptism.
Danny Truitt’s wife, Deborah, a WBS teacher, had studied with the three young women. He recaps the occasion: “Two deputies brought them to the building in handcuffs and shackles. The handcuffs and shackles were removed to allow them to put on baptismal garments, and then the handcuffs were placed on them again. The ankle shackles were left off to allow them to better negotiate the steps into the baptistery.” Truitt added, “Needless to say, she is pumped beyond measure,” referring to his wife’s excitement over the baptisms.
Despite the physical chains, these women have found freedom in Christ. What a joy it is to share in this triumph with the Beltline congregation.
