Baptisms at Goose Creek

A few weeks ago I was able to be at a baptism service at Goose Creek Correctional Center. We held two services. The morning service is our regular God Behind Bars service for the inmates who are unsentenced or have not been to trial yet. These inmates are kept separate from the general population sentenced inmates.
Then that afternoon as part of the regular Sunday service for general population we baptized those inmates. Since starting baptisms 10 months ago in July, we have seen 97 inmates to this step of obedience.
Normally publishing any pictures of these services is prohibited. But, we had a picture where the background is kinda blurry and the only face you can make out is mine. This gives you an idea of what the gym where we hold the Sunday and Friday night services looks like. And I was also able to get a couple of pictures of the tank that is used for baptisms. It's not fancy, but it gets the job done.
