We’re off to get baptised! No need for seatbelts! There’s safety in numbers.

Have you attended a baptism in your church lately? Well here is a baptism that might be a bit different! This is an African baptism!

Yes, it still involves going under the water and coming back up again, as a symbol of our faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Watch out for the crocodiles! And did you notice the rescue boat?

But they do it in a river, and they often get there on the back of a truck!

The end result is the same: a powerful witness for the saving power of Jesus Christ, and more souls in the Kingdom!

These photos are from a GNU baptism earlier this year in Uganda, Africa.
