Photo News: Cornfield Baptism

In the tribal areas of Vietnam, proclaiming ones faith by the act of baptism can result in persecution and even death. These church leaders are baptizing a new believer in the middle of a cornfield to avoid detection. One writes, "Since baptism here is an illegal Christian activity, we must go to some isolated place and do it fast before the police can find us." This is an everyday reality for God’s servants in Vietnam.
