Iraqi Christians are still being baptised, even in the midst of threats from ISIS. Canon Andrew White, known around the world as the vicar of Baghdad said that he baptised a family of five, though terrorists loom ever closer to the city.
White wrote on Facebook, “Despite the tragedy all around us we are so aware of the presence and glory of God. We had a great joyful event today as I baptised a mother and her four young children. What a joy it was when the 10-year-old came up to me after the Baptism and said ‘I feel all new now I am all different’ and he was.”
The vicar of Baghdad said that the family “really wanted to demonstrate their faith,” despite the ongoing crisis in the region. “It was lovely baptising them and the children were so excited… In the midst of such a desperate situation it was wonderful to have something which was so nice,” White said.
