Woman being baptised in Turkey

Baptized into Newness of Life

Outdoor baptisms in Turkey are usually held in rivers or in the Black Sea. In this instance, the immersion took place in a bathtub! An imam who once preached in the local mosque became a disciple of Jesus Christ. He shared the gospel with his family, and his wife and 10-year-old daughter became believers too. The wife (pictured) was baptized recently in this bathtub on the top floor of a church. After the ceremony, the pastor prayed a blessing over the couple.
