Mission, Reaching, and Preaching

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. — Acts 1:8

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan, we hope and pray that you all are fine, we are also fine and safe by the grace of God. We are not hearing of Covid-19 spread anywhere in the country right now, but our country is suffering because of flooding in so many areas and cities because of heavy rains. We want to request you to please keep that in your special prayers. 

Mission in the Desert

CC Pakistan started going to a city near the desert last year, and at the start of this year we started one online class there. Recently we had our second mission trip in that area and it was really a great mission trip. It helped us see the tough life situation of the believers in that area. In the far areas, life is really tough and people are not living in one community but separately. Even to reach these people is a great challenge, as one needs to travel long distances in the desert which cannot be done without the help of the local people. We praise God that we were able to go and reach many people at different locations, we were able to pray with/for them, we also

gave them regular Bibles, Children’s Bibles, and Audio Bibles. We praise God that we could reach there, we want to thank you for all prayers and support and we also want to share that this is a vast mission field, we need to work hard and work more here, so please keep this all in your prayers. 

Special Unreached Group

During this mission trip we reached a very special group, they were originally Hindus, but some years ago 25 families of that tribe came to Christ. They live in a very far, isolated village, they have their own pastor, who needs much teaching training. They are very poor, they have so many different kinds of pressures and their lives are full of challenges, but we were so blessed to see that they still love the Lord and are very happy to believe in Christ as their personal Savior. Their whole village has most of the houses made with mud, they simply have one primary school, but after that they cannot send their kids to high school or college as they don’t have resources to travel the long distances, they cannot afford to send their children to those schools far away and it’s not even safe for their children to go daily for studying alone.  God has put this special group on my heart and the heart of our team. We wish to be in touch with them, we wish to be able to share the word of God with them in some proper way and even start some project where their children can learn something and grow doing something that can help them in their normal and spiritual life.

This group was also very much excited and happy to have us, though it was far. It was not safe to travel there or back to our hotel in the night, but we prayerfully decided to spend that evening with them and share the word of God with them. It was really a very special and blessed meeting. We were able to provide them some children’s Bibles and also audio Bibles to use for their spiritual growth in the meetings. They were very happy and very blessed by this fellowship. Their worship that evening was so full of joy. We are praying to reach this group again. We wish to start a sewing center there for a lady who knows sewing and knitting. We are also in prayer to see how Lord wants us to reach and bless this group. Please keep this special group in your prayers!

Bible Class in Desert Area

Our online class started in the city near the desert at the start of this year but because of lockdown, I was not able to go and see our students personally until now. We have over 40 online students in this class, most of them were followers of Word-Faith movement and were leading their lives according to the teaching of the health, wealth and prosperity Gospel. We praise God that this class has started changing their lives and they are so happy to be able to learn this way. 

It was really great for our team to meet those students in person, teach them and then have dinner and fellowship with them. This class continues online and we praise God that people travel from different places to attend this. Please keep our this online teaching project as well in your prayers. 

Video Recording of Teaching

God provided support for us to start Video recording of Biblical teaching in the Urdu language, we started this project in the month of August. We praise God that this is finally possible. All the classes that we have been teaching are going to be recorded and we are going to record the teaching series which will be helpful for us right now in the ministry and in the future for our Bible college vision. We are thankful to you all for your prayers and support. The Lord is really doing amazing things in and through CC Pakistan. During all this time of lockdown when the world came to stand still, God helped us to do much more than our normal routine and He also provided help and ways to accomplish our tasks. 

We are always thankful to you all, we love you and pray for you! God bless you and your families!

Connecting, Uniting, Equipping

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”
Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Dear Friends and Family
Greetings in our Lord’s name from CC Pakistan. We praise God that He has kept us during all this tough time when virus had spread everywhere and here in our country many things were not being taken seriously and we have very organized and powerful health care system as well. We are thankful to you for the prayers and support during all this time. The spread of the virus has almost stopped and life is coming to normal routine. In this update we are going to share mainly how Lord is working in the lives of young generation through through His Word that CC Pakistan is taking to them and teaching them diligently.

Seed of the Word in Desert

Last year we went to a city near desert Cholistan, about 10 hours drive from our place. During our vision tour last year, God brought us into contact with a wonderful guy who started working with us as a contact in the desert area. Through him we started online Bible class there which is going well and, that brother in Christ has started Calvary Chapel Sunday School and Youth Fellowship where he has started to teach children and young men and women weekly. 

This is an amazing step that has enabled us to reach and teach many children and young boys and girls  who are willing to study the Word with brother Aftab. This is also opening doors for us to reach more people and specially children and young men

and women in the neighboring areas. The people in the area are leading a tough life because of their area’s location, condition, and poverty. So many children are not going to schools and people are facing so many health issues as well because they don’t get proper medication and health awareness. Please keep our mission in the desert area in your prayers. 

Neighboring city Mission

We started our online class in a neighboring city as well where we have more than 40

online students in our class. God has brought into contact with us a wonderful God fearing man in that city as well. He has caught the vision of Calvary Chapel to reach people with the simple but thorough study of the Word of God. He is in touch with us for all guidance and help for teaching. And his Bible study with some young people is going really well. This brother is very mission minded and is reaching many people with the Audio Bible as well to help them know the Word and grow spiritually. 
God is good!!! we can see many people being connected united and equipped with the Biblical teaching in near future through our teaching project which also includes Bible Study recording. Please keep this brother and his small group of young men and women also in your prayers. He is really doing tremendous job, and his vision to start Calvary Chapel in his area in future is really awesome!

Partners in the Mission Field

As God provided us Children’s and adult’s Bibles for the mission this year, he also has blessed us with Audio Bibles through Faith Comes by Hearing organization. Because of this some amazing people are coming into contact with us who truly are humble servants and they are serving Lord in the very remote areas among very disadvantaged people. 

So the Word of God is going to many those as well who are not in our reach. We are promoting the organized study of the Word on regular basis and this is what most of the people around like about Calvary Chapel Pakistan. We always encourage people to focus on “Simply the Word Simply”. God is using his Word in the really amazing ways and we really feel His hand working through and in us as well as all the people we are reaching

to with the Word. The word of God is effective and powerful and God is definitely changing the lives of so many here through it for eternity. We want you to please continue to pray for us.

There are many other parts where we are reaching with the Word of God, not  only distributing the Bibles, but making sure to establish and start a proper system to help children and young boys and girl study the word of God in regularly. The study of the word at this level will go a long way in their lives and we firmly believe that God is going to use these all efforts for His name’s glory. There are few other groups also that are being reached but I don’t want to make this update very long and boring. Lord blessed us with availability of His word for children and adults  this year, so it is helping us to “Connect, Unite and Equip our next generation. The next step will be “Send” them to the mission field in future. Please keep these precious souls in your prayers. Please continue to pray for CC Pakistan’s team and also please keep our need for the Bibles for year 2021 and our mission project in desert in your prayers. 
We are always thankful to you, we love you and pray for you!

In Christ Jesus

God is Our Refuge in Troubled Time

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings and love from Calvary Chapel Pakistan. We are thankful to you for your faithful prayers. By the grace of God we all are safe, and doing good in this very troubled time which is getting worse here in our country.

The doctors in our country had beeing telling people that everyone should take this virus seriously and following the instructions of the Govt. and doctors, but people did not care and thought that either this pandemic was over or it was not brining any harm to people in Pakistan. Now at once the situation has changed. Our hospitals are full of patients, death toll is rising everyday. It seems that things are getting out of control, the terror of death is prevailing around. With poor medical structure it is very hard to handle the situation at place like this. We are hearing about many poor people around who are suffering from other diseases but they are not able to go to the doctors. They cannot receive medical treatment. The physical condition of so many is getting worse daily but nothing can be done except from self help and prayer. Some of our very close friends and family members are going trought such trouble, we want to request you all to please pray for our country and specially those people who are already suffering from different other diseases and are not able to receive medical treatment.

Tri-city Outreach Evangelism

We praise God that our online Bible classes allowed us to reach many wonderful people in different cities. The leaders of the groups are really happy for what they have been learning, and they feel so blessed to be part of our classes. God has worked in their hearts in such wonderful way that they are reaching other people with the Word of God in the most possible ways. One group is useing som of our previously recorded Teaching video and share the word of God with their groups. This is great exprience for them and we are praying to be able to produce more video teachings in near future so that more people get Bible based teaching presented in the simplest way to grow in the knowledge of God’s word.

Another friend who is so passionate about studying the word of God is reaching people with Audio Bibles that God has provided us through Faith Comes by Hearing organization. These friends are representing Calvary Chapel Pakistan and are serving whole heartedly by going and taking the word of God to the other people.

The seed of the Word that we sowed in the desert area in october 2019 is growing now. Our brother in Christ who represents CC Pakistan in that area has just started a “Youth Fellowship and Sunday School” project. We are so glad that the new generation of that area which has been neglected most of the time is now being reached, one group at one time and taught the word of God. We want to train more people in those areas so that they be able to work there and reach and teach their own people. God is so good. He provide us with Bibles for children and also regular Bibles for adults at the start of this year.

Our office is sending these Bibles to our friends working in three different cites with the commitment that they will not merely distribute those, but make sure that they arrange the study of those Bibles.

Our church is also doing great, we have resumed the Sunday and Friday services and we are studying the word of God together on regular basis. We praise God that when there is lockdown and people are not able to do much, they are being provided help and resources to study the word of God and grow sprituatlly. We are thankful to you all for the prayers and care. We pray for you and request you to always keep us in your pray! God Bless You!

The Lord is Our Shepherd

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1

Dear Friends and family,

Greetings and love from Pakistan, we hope that all of you are fine, we thank God for the protection of our families, church members and Bible study group members during this time. God is good, we rejoice in His goodness and love.
During this situation of lock-down, we have not been able to arrange church services and online Bible classes, though we’ve been visiting church member’s families with all necessary safety measures. And we are also using this time to train the new team members in the desert area to know more about ministry and grow in biblical studies.

Covid-19 Relief

Our country is not only suffering because of Covid-19, but much poverty as well, as the country is locked down, poor people (daily wagers) have been suffering as they are not

able to provide for their families in this situation. Our church started receiving many requests from our town and from the desert area where we started our ministry project last year. Thank God for the provision of financial support, we are thankful to

you for coming on our side and helping us through Saving Grace World Missions for relief in this tough situation. Our team members are reaching people with food bags, and we are also encouraging them in this tough situation through the Word of God. The support project continues as Lord leads and helps our team to reach people at different places.

According to today’s information, the spread of the virus has increased and it is said to be spreading in the areas very near to us. Please continue to pray for us as we are praying for you all there.

Pandemic, Quarantine and Future

This is definitely unique time in our lives in many different ways.It is horrifying for a large number of people, for many it is the time to be strengthened in their faith and for so many it is very misleading time as well. Since the spread of this virus, many so-called prophets and false teachers have been coming forward to tell people what is going to happen next. They have been suggesting the end of this virus on specific days, and many of them are suggesting the end of the world on a particular day according to their prophecies. People are getting caught up in the superstitions. This situation has urged us more to reach people with Bible based true teachings more than ever and warn them of the false, confusing and misleading teachings while leading them to the study of the Word of God. In our family we started studying Basic Christian Theology so that our children’s belief and understanding of the Christian faith be Bible based.
we are also praying to start recording of video and audio teaching sessions, classes and sermons to reach more and more people. Please keep this in your prayers, we will be in need to hire a technical guy to record and edit teaching classes and sermons. We are in prayers for the provision of regular support for this, and we will be encouraged by your co-laboring with us in this project.

We are really thankful to you for your prayers, care and support. We pray for you and your family’s protection and blessings! God Bless You!

In Christ Jesus

Set Free by God’s Word

“You will know the TRUTH, and the Truth will set you free.”__John 8:32

Dear Friends and family,
Greetings from CC Pakistan, we praise God for His faithfulness and care and also we are thankful to you for your faithful prayers and support. We are doing really good, our church and teaching ministry is growing and our whole team is fine by God’s grace.

Online Teaching Ministry

I shared with you about our “Online Teaching Ministry” that we started this year in our last update. Now I want to share with you the great impact of the class on the lives of our students. This is our new ministry and we were in prayer for this since October 2019. The both groups (more than 40 students  in each) come from background highly affected by “televangelists”. Therefore students in both classes had so many misconceptions and were confused about their faith. They were curious about the online class as well as it is their first experience to learn this way. Out experiment with teachingand the Bible study class itself has been really amazing and very successful. The first 14 classes are titled “Introduction to the Bible” and our slogan for this class is “Back to the Bible.” This class has been really wonderful, students are very excited as they are coming to know about the Holy Word of God and thus are led to study it. Last week as I visited one group in their city, they had so many stories to tell me and they shared how this online Bible class arranged by CC Pakistan is helping them grow in their faith removing their misconceptions about Bible and helping them know and read it more daily.
Our Second Group of  Bible students is from a city at the distance of 9 hours drive. That group is near a vast desert called Cholistan. That group was fully dominated by the so-called healers and most of the people still follows such false teachers who are making merchandise of the word of God. We praise God that the group in that city is also growing much in discernment and spiritual awareness in the light of the Bible. It is really great privilege for us to lead these young people back to the Bible. We praise God for His grace and are thankful to you for your prayers.

God provided “Bibles

CC Pak has been reaching very remote areas and disadvantaged and un-reached Christians at so many places from the very start of our mission work in Pakistan. We need Urdu Bibles every year for our Outreach Mission Trips to hand the Word of God to those who don’t have Bible. We want to share with you with joyful hearts that God very graciously has blessed CC Pakistan with 800 Urdu Bibles (400 for adults, and 400 Children Bibles) this year. A large number of these Bibles are going to very poor and un-reached families and children. Thank you for praying for our needs and coming forward to co-labor with us through your support.
God is also blessing us with Audio Bibles with the help of Faith Comes by Hearing ministry, and that is really great blessing for those who are unable to read or write, now they can listen the Word of God whenever they want.

First Outreach Mission of 2020

Last year we went on 5 days outreach mission trip to desert area and it was really great as Lord led us to some areas where people are really living in great darkness spiritually. This

mission trip became to reason of starting the online Bible classes with a group which is really a great blessing for those people as well as for us.
This also gave us opportunity to disciple a group of young people in the area to reach their people by sharing the Word of God with them and encouraging them in their Christian faith. We are very happy to share that these young men are reaching people in their area and they are sharing the word of God with them and are teaching them what they learn in the online Bible classes.
CC Pak’s team is going on our “First Outreach Mission Trip 2020” in couple of weeks. We will be reaching some new areas with the Bibles, we will reach people, pray for and with them and encourage them in their faith in the Lord. We praise God that He has provided us with the needs. We will have some special discipleship meetings with our contact and his team in that area. Please keep this mission trip and our team in your prayers.

Thank you very much once again for your prayers, love and support, we always pray for you and your families.

In Christ Jesus

Back to the Bible

“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth”           John 17:17

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan, we hope and pray for all of you to be fine. We praise God for the wonderful work of the church to continue here by His grace.

Sickness

As the weather is changing, our whole family went through a phase of sickness because of cold and high fever. This is also one of the reasons that we are late in posting our update. We are thankful to you for the faithful prayers. Almost all of us have recovered now and the coldest wave of the weather is almost over.

Bibles for Un-reached

We are thankful to you dear friends for helping us get Bibles for unreached people for  many years now. We remember the times when some of you donated blood to raise support for the Bibles, some of you ran long distance races and children did car wash to raise support for Bibles. We are always humbled to see your love, and while you co-labor with us that way, on this end we have been faithfully reaching remote areas, deep villages, jungles and deserts to take your gift to most deserving people.

I have shared with you that American organization “Faith Comes by Hearing” is providing CC Pakistan with audio Bibles this year. Their Director for Asia visited Pakistan last month and we conducted a training for the pastors.

Now not only our mission team but many pastors around us are forming small groups of people at different places and they are studying the Word of God with uneducated, disadvantaged and poor people in the remote areas. These groups listen from the Word of God and then they have time for discussion and prayer. Please continue to pray for this ministry project and provision of Bibles needed in future.

Reaching other cities Online

In year 2020 we started an awesome project of teaching in two other cities through

“Online class”. This is really a great start of the year and we believe that this is the foundation of a vision for future, of Calvary Chapel “Bible school and College” in Pakistan. For first three months we have a class “Introduction to Bible” and then we will move to some

other classes. First Week we had 21 and 27 students at in our class in two different cities and this week at both places we had more than 40 students.
I also want to share with you that these people we are reaching through our “online class” have highly been under

the influence of “Televangelists, prosperity teachers”. The Teaching of the true word of God is amazingly changing their lives. Since we started these classes, we are receiving more requests from different people. Please keep this teaching project in your prayers, and please pray that we may start such projects in more cities where so many people are still unreached and they are not receiving true and simple teachings of the Word.

Website

Our devoted team is working very hard to produce Biblical teaching material in Urdu language for our website: calvarypakistan.com, the outcome is really great and our website is also becoming a great source for so many people for Bible studies, Bible commentary in Urdu and so much other information. Please keep our whole team, our ministry and all needs in your prayers!
We are always thankful to you for your love, care and support. We love you and pray for you and your family!

Happy New Year

Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. _____Isaiah 40:30-31

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings and Happy New Year! We hope and pray for you to be fine, safe and rejoicing in the Lord. We praise God for His faithfulness during year 2019. God did many wonderful things in our lives and ministry and through it.
In our meeting at the end of last year, we recalled some of the important things that Lord made possible for us, and those are like this:

  • My book on Christian Apologetics was printed,
  • All the inquiries for the registration of our organization were completed,
  • Our church’s youth Bible study was started,
  • Our Website www.calvarypakistan.com was made and we have put much Urdu Material on that including the translation of Pastor David Guzik’s Commentary of John and Jude.
  • We received adults and children Bibles and Audio Bibles for our ministry,
  • We were able to go to desert area for 5 days mission, the ministry there continues…
  • My son Joshua went with me to the CC Pastoral conference in Nepal, and the list goes on and on.

God is truly faithful and he keeps and protects us as we serve Him here. We are thankful to you for your love, care, prayers and support.

Refreshing Time with the Team

Spending some time with our Calvary Chapel Team during the conferences has always been the most refreshing time for me. We praise God that in November 2019 I was able to go to Nepal with my son and we were able to spend some quality time with teams of two Calvary Chapels while they were serving diligently. This year’s experience was really unique as it helped me and my son to come out of our comfort zones. My son will never every forget his time spent in the Nepali mission field with those amazing people.

The most joyful thing for me was that we also were able to spend some very special time

with our Saving Grace Team. I met some new people, had wonderful fellowship and learned many things from their lives and ministries. We praise God and give Him all glory for the ministries of our all missionary friends in different countries of the world.

Christmas and New Year time

The year 2019 ended with many blessings as we look behind. December was very busy time as usual and it was full of blessings and joy for us and our church members.

One important thing that we always want to do in December is to reach the brick makers for Christmas lunch and fellowship with them. They are ureached people who are considered outcast of the society. During this time we help them with the food bags and warm clothes for winter. We praise God that this year’s fellowship was really great.

Christmas and New Year time with our youth in the village

church was also really amazing. These young men and women were also unreached and now they are very much thankful to be united under the umbrella of Calvary Chapel. The time of Christmas was full of joy, blessings and fun for these groups as well.

Women Ministry

This is truly amazing and very much needed ministry. The women in our society are also kind of unreached group

though they are totally reachable. My wife Farah is leading three Bible Study Groups in three different locations with the help of a lady named Monica. These wonderful ladies in the group also had very blessed fellowship time full of blessing and joy during Christmas time.

New Years brings New Opportunity

The year 2020 has started with really amazing opportunities for us to reach more areas with the word of God through proper online classes and mission trips. We

visited a city named Bahawalpur in October 2019 and went for 5 days desert mission trip. The trip was really very much fruitful and our that mission trip created the opportunity for us to start organized Bible study classes in two cities. We praise God that He has provided the needs for these classes and we need your prayers to start them soon as possible and continue them for those students’ growth in the Word and knowledge of our Lord and for our Lord’s glory.

We are thankful to you for the prayers, care, love and support. We love you and pray for you!

Good News For Desert Dwellers

“…you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8b

Dear Friends and Family, 
Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan! we all are fine by the grace of God and we are thankful to you for your prayers, love and generous support.  We praise God for answering our prayers and helping us to go on desert mission last month. Lord laid this on our hearts

in the month of March when a friend of us shared the situation about believers living in the deserted area. We started praying for the area and for the help for us to reach there, and finally God not only enabled us to go to that area for the mission but also provided many important supplies of Bibles such as regular (NT & OT), colorful children’s Bible and Audio Bibles with solar panels to recharge in the desert. 

Great Opportunity of Prayer

After we visited this area our hearts and minds were so moved that the first thing that we felt led to do was “Pray” passionately with and for them. Their miserable lives, spiritual condition and the need to be reached with the gospel of Jesus Christ made us start counting our blessings of everyday that we enjoy.

The beautiful thing is that though they are least reached, they don’t have organized churches and available teachers of the Word of God. They even don’t have the Bibles at their homes yet they profess their faith in Jesus Christ. We came to know about the people who have lost every possession because of the debts they take from landlords and can never pay that back their whole lives. We heard from the local people that there are many who are chained during the night so that they may not run away because they have to pay heavy debts. In spite of all those hardships, they do not deny Jesus Christ. There is great opportunity for us and you all to pray for people living in these dark and un-reached areas. We will appreciate your prayers for our team and the needs for mission in the desert. 

Bibles Delivered

When we come to know about this area, the main need was mentioned to us was “the Bibles”. We’ve been praying for almost 6 months, and finally God provided all that we needed in really amazing way. Some really loving and generous friends came up through Saving Grace World Missions with the support for Urdu Bibles. Calvary Cyprus helped us with Colorful Children Bibles, Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBY) provided Audio Bibles and World Missionary Press Inc. provided many Bible study books and other scriptural Booklets.

People very very much thankful for the blessing of the Word of God that they were

receiving and children were very excited as colorful Children’s Bible was really something amazing for them. They were excited to receive and read those. 

The need of mission is so great in that area that we really felt pushed to spend our late evenings in the far deep villages reaching and meeting people. Mission in the desert area is really much needed and very worthy cause. We want to request you to co-labor in this with

us through your prayers, support to get more Bibles and sponsor mission trips in that area.

Meeting in the Town

The day before we came back, our host arranged a meeting in the city where more than 90 people came, most of them were young men and women. Majority of these people was

under the influence of televangelists. Sharing the plain word of God in simple but reasonable manner had really powerful impact on them.  We had great conversation with those people and they are willing to start an online class with us in that area. We praise God for opening this door for us to reach the hearts and minds of people in that area with the word of God. We had requests to reach some more areas for which we had to travel many hundred kilometers more. We could not go there but hope and pray to reach there as well to encourage our brothers and sisters in the Lord and help them with the Urdu Bibles, sound Christian teaching and our prayers. We are thankful to you for the prayers and want to request you to please continue praying and supporting us. God Bless You!

Holiday Celebrations and Church Registration!

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ! We are thankful to you for the faithful prayers and support. We are sorry that we could not write last month. December and January were very busy months with all church activities, Christmas and New Year Celebration and some other things regarding our ministry registration with the government. Here we would like to give you a brief update about what God has been doing in and through CC Pakistan here. 

Church Registration

The process of the registration is going smooth, as we live in a rented building and in the very same building we have our office. The officials told us that we need to have our office on our personal land. So through this Lord opened the door for us to use the church property that was purchased some years before. We had built a room in a corner of that property. So recently we needed to do some renovation and this place will be registered as the office of Calvary Chapel Pakistan on our official documents. We praise God for making this possible very dramatically. We were not able to use this place first but now it will be in use for different meetings and some other activities of the church. 

Christmas with Brick Makers

The Christmas program with the brick makers was really awesome, we are thankful to you for the prayer and for support to help them with food bags, clothes and vitamins. These people were really blessed with all that God provided for them. The brick makers fellowship continues on every Friday as it’s free day for them and our other services are on Sunday, Morning and Evening with our other two churches, besides Women’s Bible study with Farah (Saturday) and Youth Bible study class with Joseph on Friday Evening. Please keep these three groups we are serving among in your prayers. 

Book in Urdu

There is good news to share with you that my book on Christian Apologetics in Urdu language is finally going to be printed. God has provided us financial support to print it this month. The book was read by four learned pastors, two of them are professors in two different seminaries, all four of them endorsed it. The work is really liked and I hope it’s going to be great blessing for Pakistani Christians. I want to thank all the friends who prayed with us for this book to be printed and also all those who supported us financially to print it in Pakistan. 

Audio Bible Outreach

Finally I want to share that we have been receiving Audio Urdu Bibles (in rechargeable devices) from “Faith Comes by Hearing” for those people who are not able to read the word of God. Last year we visited some very remote areas quite far from our place, where people need such things. We wish to go on once a month mission day to such areas. Our one whole day mission trip to such remote areas costs $200. We want to request you to please pray for the need, share the need with your friends and churches and please support this cause as Lord guides you. 

Please keep our family and team in your prayers. We are thankful to you all for the prayers. We here pray for you and your family!

Blessings!

In Christ Jesus
