Baptism in Biblical Lands

An article by Spc Jodi Krause documents the baptism of several Army soldiers while deployed to Balad, Iraq.  The article includes photos of the baptisms, which occurred in the base pool.  Their Chaplain, Chaplain (Lt Col) Joel Severson said: 

As a pastor, [my] calling is to make believers and baptize them. In a sense, I am fulfilling my calling to the Lord to baptize them and continue to build them up in their faith.
