Houston Texans Quarterback and first-round draft pick Deshaun Watson was baptized in Israel’s Jordan River on Monday, touring the country with a pro-Israel group called “American Voices in Israel.” The group organizes tours to Israel for celebrities and religious leaders as a form of ambassadorship for the Middle Eastern country.

Watson is a University of Clemson graduated who was selected by the Texans as the twelfth overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. He’s started his NFL career with promise thus far, being selected as a Pro Bowl player in his second year in the league.

Watson was baptized in the Holy Land’s famous Jordan River. The river is heavily referenced in scripture, being the site where Jesus Christ was baptized by John the Baptist, an event thought to represent the beginning of Christ’s public ministry. Many Christians have traveled to the site in order to experience a critical moment in the life of their Lord.

While waiting until now to signify his commitment to Jesus with the ritual of Christian baptism, Watson has spoken of his Christian faith before. The Georgia native has described himself as finding Christ in the ninth grade, and spoke of receiving guidance from God in making his decision to attend Clemson.

Watson’s also shown a desire to give back to his community, making the decision to donate his very first NFL game check to Texans stadium workers who were devastated by Hurricane Harvey in 2017.

Many American Christians inspired by Watson’s Christian witness will continue to watch the promising career of a young man unafraid to announce his life commitment to the teachings of Christ.

The National Park and U.S. Fish and Wildlife services confirmed in a joint statement that six California Condors have been seeing flying above the Sequoia National Park in Eastern California.

The birds were also photographed by park personnel.

A biologist of the Santa Barbara Zoo confirmed that specimens being GPS-tracked by the zoo had been geolocated in the national park.

We use GPS transmitters to track the birds’ movement, which can be over hundreds of miles on a single day,” said Dave Meyer. “On this particular day we documented the birds’ signals around Giant Forest, and we are excited that park employees observed the birds and confirmed their use of this important historic habitat.

The Sequoia National Park consists of more then 400,000 acres in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. The rare vultures, which feed upon carrion, had once been known to nest in the great Sequoia trees of the park, before disappearing from the habitat around the 1970’s.

The California Condor is a New World vulture, and an exceptionally large bird, the largest native to North America. It range once broadly consisted of the entire western United States, spanning from Canada to Baja California in Mexico.

It had been declared to be extinct in the wild in 1987, but a preservation program to save the species has proved successful in reintroducing captive individuals to the wild in northern Arizona and Utah. Poaching, habitat destruction, and poisoning from manmade chemicals have severely eroded the population of the birds in the wild, and it’s currently listed as critically endangered. Preservation efforts have increased the wild population of the California Condor from merely 22 animals to more than 400 today.
