Stephen with the help of two other soldiers trenched into the Euphrates river and declared that he has decided to follow God. Just outside Rawah, Anbar Province, Stephen has taken an oath to follow God for the rest of his life, after witnessing death and destruction first hand.
The soldier chose the song “Oceans” by Hillsong because it brought tears to his eyes and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for this baptism video.
