On a recent Thursday afternoon, 20 Iranians took a flight from their country's main international airport in the capital city of Tehran and flew to an undisclosed city. The journey was filled with danger, but each one of them was willing to take the risk for the chance to experience a life-transforming moment.
For security reasons, we have concealed their identities, changed their names and their voices.
One-by-one 20 Iranians descended the steps of an indoor swimming pool.
Men. Women. Young adults. Teenagers. And a seven-year-old girl.
Some were single. Others married and joined by their spouses. Moms and dads with children also were baptized.

"Most of the people at this gathering are artists, musicians, some are TV producers, they are very educated people, they are specialists from different fields of Iranian society," Pastor Amir told CBN News.
