“One of the most iconic photographs in modern Mormon history was taken on March 4, 1979. It is a photo of more than 60 baptismal candidates from the Nigerian village of Ikot Eyo lined up waiting for baptism in a nearby stream. Most who have seen the photo don’t know that the Mabeys also captured that historic scene on video.”
