Count beauty queen Yendi Phillipps among the local celebrities to have given their lives to the Lord.

A video of Phillipps being baptized emerged on Sunday and has been making the rounds on social media.

The 24-second long video, shot in Jamaica, shows the former Miss Jamaica World and Miss Jamaica Universe being baptized in Church by the Glades pastor, Kory Cassell. Businessman Omar Azan shared in the occasion. 

An emotional Phillipps stated before the baptism that God has been great to her and that she was "grateful" and "humbled" by his "Goodness". Watch the video below.

Phillipps is the latest popular personality in recent times to have embarked on a more spiritual path. Entertainers Alaine and Wayne Marshall recently made the transition.

Two years ago, Lady Saw, an entertainer known for ribald songs, also made the leap of faith into Christianity.
