I’ll never get over just how motivating it was to see the baptismal photos from around the world that lined the halls of the Provo MTC. “Just one soul”, I’d say to myself as I walked on by.

So I had a little ‘throw back Thursday’ and decided again to, go on the hunt to find some of the newest, the rarest and most inspiring baptismal photos from around the world. I love how every photo tells a story.

If you know any more of the story behind these photos please message me and I’ll update the caption asap.

Thanks and enjoy!

In the 1960s many in Nigeria and Ghana gained  testimonies by reading Church literature. When missionaries arrived in 1978, hundreds of Africans were ready to be baptized. Within a year, some 1,700 people had been baptized and confirmed.
