Nebo Welsh Baptist Chapel - Cefn Cribwr (1905)




The heavenly breeze gently fell on us in early November 1904; I say gently, but yet effectively, because from then till now the sweet perfumes continue to be spread, and we believe that pieces of the enemy's "Common" will still continue to be added to the cultivated land of the Lord's garden here. On January 1st we had the pleasure of seeing 29 buried in the watery grave [=baptised], and it is a comforting fact to note that every one of them has arisen from it to walk in a new life. This baptism took place on the above date at the request of a young girl, who gave expression to her desire to give herself as a New Year's Gift to her Saviour. On January 15th, behold 9 others following the 29, or rather following him who came from Nazareth to the Jordan to John, &c.

On March 26th again, behold another 12, obeying the same decree, making the number baptised since January 1st, 50.  Besides all this, we have had the pleasure of welcoming back others - a total of more than 60.  Others still are not, “we believe, far from the kingdom of God."

Ionawr laf cawsom y pleser o weled 29 yn cael eu claddu yn y dyfrllyd fedd, ac y mae yn ffaith gysur lawn i nodi fod pob ms o honynt wedi codi o hono yn para i rodio buchedd newydd. Cymerodd y bedydd hwn le ar y dyddiad uchod ar gais merch ieuanc, yr hon roddodd fynegiad i'w hawydd i gael rhoddi ei hun yn New Year's. Gift i'w Gwaredwr. Ionawr 15fed, wele 9 arall yn dilyn y 29, neu yn hytrach yn Mawrth 26ain in drachefn, wele 12 eraill yn ufuddhau i'r unrhyw orchymyn, yn gwneud nifer y bedyddiedigion er Ionawr 1af yn 50. Heblaw hyn oll yr ydym wedi cael yr hyfrydwch o groesawn erail! yn ol— cyfanswm dros 60. Eraill etto nad ydynr" gredwn, bell oddiwrth deyrnas Dduw."
