Utah Mormon missionary Cole Payne has two methods of baptism: by water, and by dunk.
Earlier this spring, Payne and his companion (the LDS Church could not immediately verify his companion's identity) decided to challenge some locals to a pickup basketball game during their mission in Henderson, Texas. "They said, 'We're just a couple of white boys looking to play some basketball," says Lindon resident Wade Payne, Cole's dad.
In a video that has now been shared online thousands of times, the missionaries can be seen apparently missing practice shots on purpose to bait their opponents. Once the game starts, though, good heck. Payne dunks twice to shouts of incredulity, after which opponents and spectators alike pace around the court and digest what they have seen.
