In Ethiopia Villagers Climb Sheer Cliffs for a Baptism
Clip: Season 2 | 1m 9s
In Ethiopia’s Gheralta mountain villagers climb sheer cliffs for a baptism. Their churches are built high in the mountains to bring them "closer to God," and reaching them is a real test of faith. They believe that male children must be baptized on the 40th day after birth in order to be blessed, but this is a long and perilous journey to make with a newborn.
