VIA| When this soldier was surrounded by terrorism while serving in Iraq, he decided to be baptized in a historical river for Christianity. This heartwarming video is the best baptism I’ve ever seen!
This soldier wanted to publicly declare his faith in Jesus Christ while serving in Iraq. Despite the attacks that threatened soldiers’ lives daily, this Christian soldier decided to be baptized in the Euphrates River- the only river mentioned in both the first and last book of the Bible.
This soldier and his unit courageously ran to the historical river one day when they realized the fog was too thick for enemies to see them. It gave me chills to see him run into the rushing water with no weapons and barely any armor. The young hero is dunked entirely underwater by his friend and the platoon’s chaplain, powerfully declaring his trust in God and his acceptance of Jesus Christ as his savior. Performing a Christian baptism in a hostile land that is surrounded by Islamic Extremism is the definition of brave.
Watch the beautiful baptism right now!
This is what a TRUE hero looks like! How brave of them to declare their faith in Jesus Christ in such a dangerous time.
