Suffering But Growing Church

100+ Baptised

Tuesday, May 24, 2022

We praise God that more than 100 Iranians and Afghans went through the waters of baptism recently. At a large service in a country near to Iran, these new believers - many of whom had come to faith as a result of recent Persian New Year outreach - made a public declaration of their faith. Among their number was Ali. Years ago, Ali had been incarcerated in an Iranian prison alongside Christian leader Farshid. During their imprisonment, Farshid had shared the Gospel but Ali was not interested. When Ali unexpectedly met Farshid again this year at a Persian New Year outreach event, his heart was softened by Farshid's testimony. Ali made a commitment to Jesus and joined the local church. Following his baptism, he's really excited to be growing in his faith as he continues the Safar discipleship journey with a friend. The Spirit of God was at work at this joy-filled baptism service: a handful of guests were so moved by what they saw and heard that they gave their hearts to Jesus right then. They too are being discipled as part of a local church. 


  • Thank you for standing with us to plant house churches in Iran and above-ground churches in the region, like the one where Ali gave his heart to Christ 

  • Thank you for standing with us to train tenacious leaders like Farshid 

  • Thank you for standing with us to provide Bibles and discipleship resources for new believers like Ali 

  • Thank you for praying for the Spirit to be at work convicting hearts, as He was at the recent baptism service.
