From a New Zealand Prayer book

The First Reading                                   Acts 8:35-40

Then Philip began to speak, 

and starting with this scripture, 

he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. 

As they were going along the road, they came to some water; 

and the eunuch said, 

‘Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?’ 

He commanded the chariot to stop, 

and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, 

went down into the water, and Philip baptized him. 

When they came up out of the water, 

the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; 

the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. 

But Philip found himself at Azotus, 

and as he was passing through the region, 

he proclaimed the good news to all the towns 

until he came to Caesarea.
