7 Soldiers Want To Get Baptized, Military Chaplains Make It Happen With ‘Makeshift Tub’

The Bible says that when one man is saved, his sins are removed, and he is washed in the blood of Jesus, and his name is written in the Lamb’s book of life.

This is such a huge event that everyone in heaven rejoices over it. Luke 15:10 tells us, “…There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”

Recently seven soldiers got baptized at Fort Irwin in California with the help of military chaplains. News of the spontaneous baptism was shared in a Facebook post on Monday morning by the 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division.
