Four-year-old Shirley Ann shivers in the cold wind while standing with her daddy and the other members of Gum Pond Primitive Baptist Church.

Recently, her mama had accepted the Lord, was saved, and, in a few minutes, would be immersed in the frigid waters––“buried with Christ and raised to new life.”
