A Secret Retreat & Baptism

Darkness crawled over the cold water in the public swimming pool as the secret church gathered at the pool side. Most of them had left Islam, eight of them were ready to be immersed in the water. The clock had just passed 6:00 in the morning, minutes before sunrise and just a few hours before villagers would crowd this swimming pool. Nobody would know that the water they used to cool down or play in baptized a group of Muslim background believers (MBB) earlier that morning.
