Baptism in Er
Parents of newborn children stand erect for a final prayer after a jungle baptism conducted by Fr. Vincent Cole. While baptism are normally conducted in a church, to assimilate religion and culture Fr. Cole introduces jungle baptism in which children will be baptised with forest water, after a series of ceremony involving the Em Tem - a small house in which a child symbolically brought over by their parents as if they were exiting the mother's womb.
