For Elder Michael Vernal and the members of the Regent Street SDA
Church, March 11, 2017 will long be remembered as a very special day in
the life of the church.
For starters, history will record that this was the first time that
Elder Vernal ever baptized anyone and to top it off, his first
candidate was his mother with whom he had studied the bible and shared
the word of God for more than thirty years.
“I was more than overjoyed,” Vernal said in an interview after
baptizing his mother at the Regent Street Seventh-day Adventist Church.
“Today has been a tremendous day for me. The opportunity that was
afforded me to do the baptism was a tremendous joy. It was joy.
Unspeakable joy,” said Vernal who has been the first elder of the
Regent Street SDA Church for more than fifteen years.
