JUNDIAI, Brazil (BNc) — A couple who attended a retreat on how to relate better in marriage decided they had better relate to Christ.

Marco Aurelio e Adriana requested baptism after a class by evangelist Marcelo Gonçalves at the retreat held at the Grinbergs Village Hotel in the nearby city of Socorro.

The baptism occurred Saturday, Nov. 10, in the relaxed but joyful retreat atmosphere.

“They are my students in the School of the Bible and had been participating for some time in our church activities,” Marcelo said. “We had been talking for some time about their decision to be baptized.”

The decision of Marco Aurelio and Adriana was consummated in the hotel pool.
