Jim Jones with Christa Amos
Enter a free text date.
Jones holds Christa Amos on his lap. He wears a red shirt with dark sunglasses. A sign on the wall behind Jones reads "He sacrificed His blood for us," and the tip of a United States flag shows just above Jones's head. The position and color of the pulpit, along with the position of the flag and type of wall identify the location as the Redwood Valley Peoples Temple. The numbers "17-2" are written on the front and the back of the photograph. This photograph is from the "Healings" album in the Peoples Temple Collection. Written on the inside front cover are the names Royal Mershon and Lula Mae Mershon.
