Couple Celebrates 30th Wedding Anniversary with Baptism
When Christopher and Tamara Rhiner discovered Adventist programs on television in 2012, they were inspired by messages they heard about the Gospel. They dreamed of being baptized together on their 30th wedding anniversary. In 2014, the couple began attending the Carson City church in Carson City Nevada. On June 22nd of this year, their dreams were realized and the couple was baptized together the week of their anniversary. “Both Chris and Tammy have an intense love for Jesus,” says Eleanor Brandon, wife of Pastor Tony Brandon. For Chris and Tammy, fear has been replaced by love, and their decision for Christ has given them the strength to face every trial that comes their way.
