It never fails. Whenever I look for something for a researcher, I always find some interesting article, or photograph or bit of information. This morning I ran across this image of a baptism in the 30 October 1948 issue of Christian Standard.
The caption reads: “After having cut ice five inches thick, John D. Jenkins, minister at Odin, Ill., is pictured baptizing his uncle at Eldon, Mo., last February 11.”
The article describes how Jenkins baptized his three brothers, his sister, wife, three children, his wife’s aunt, two uncles and a cousin…12 souls in all.
