20 Blow-You-Away Baptism Photos


This article was originally published in Mission Geek by Thomas Swain. Below is an excerpt.

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!
