This is so cool! In November of 2014, these soldiers in Iraq waded into the Euphrates River. The reason may surprise you…to baptize one of their own! What a beautiful testimony of how in the midst of terror and chaos, hope and faith does prevail.

Soldier

From Qpolitical:
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.

t was 46 degrees with winds blowing at 36 miles an hour…despite the freezing conditions these guys got into that water and drip dried in the cold! In the midst of war and Islamic extremism these guys took a brave stand to declare their faith and hope in the one true God. How amazing is that?!

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
