39 Inmates Were Baptized This Weekend at a Jail in North Carolina

Photo published for 39 inmates baptized at Durham County jailThis weekend at the Durham County jail in North Carolina, 39 inmates—some of whom are locked up for crimes including rape and murder—were baptized by ministers from seven local churches. The event was organized at the prompting of an inmate who told reporters, “It’s my faith. I’m a Christian. Like all Christians, we believe Jesus is the way.” The sheriff allowed for two wading pools to be set up in the jail’s parking lot, and gave each of the individuals Bibles and Bible study materials after they were baptized.  http://relm.ag/fdm2ex1
