Did you encounter any baptism boo-boos?

nn

There was this gentleman from the Ivory Coast'we’re talking a huge man. He was about 6 foot 5 and weighed in around 400 pounds. Here we are in the baptismal font trying to get this guy to go under. We had four missionaries: two on either side. After about 13 tries, still no luck. So we decided to jump on the guy to get him completely submersed which, in turn, caused a baptismal tidal wave'much to the surprise of the entire two front rows of spectators who were then drenched in water. We called it “baptism by log flume.
