Arielle Briscoe was baptized this past Sunday afternoon, March 26, at Tuskegee Lake. Arielle is a freshman at Tuskegee University, majoring in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering.
Originally invited by fellow Fastrec student Bryce Outten, who was baptized in November, Arielle attended the TU Women's Bible Talk every week. She made every effort to understand what being a Christian entails, and asked questions that showed the openness of her heart. She soon began to study the Bible.
Arielle had a goal of being baptized on her birthday, but didn't understand the full meaning of what that would involve. As she studied and strove to be humble, her cautious heart opened. Finally, she decided to trust God and make Jesus Lord of her life. She was baptized, born again, and became our sister in Christ on the very day she'd wished for -- her birthday!
"We are so incredibly grateful for our new sister!" said Mike Gross. "Arielle is already reaching out to other freshmen at TU. She has brought so much adventure and new insight to the ATCC campus ministry."
