“One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.”Psalm 145:4
Dear Friends and family,
Greetings from Pakistan, we praise God that we all are fine, we hope and pray that you and your families are also fine. Our Bible Study Groups, Brick maker’s group, Church, and team members are fine. The severity of the hot weather is also decreasing because of the monsoon, and ministry work goes on as routine.
Special Training Program Near Desert
In the month of June we organized a Sunday School Teachers’ Training program in a city near Cholistan desert. This is a much neglected area. The church is not as active as it should have been there, and most of the people live tough and disadvantaged lives. The new generation has not been taken care of for the formal and spiritual education. We along with another ministry, which specifically works for the children, arranged a special three-day training program there.
It was very hot weather and we were expecting about 50 to 70 people there, but it was amazing to see that 200+ people were there for the training. It was a really great blessing for all of us. We not only provided training to these people but also free study materials for them to start Sunday Schools in their areas. These people came from about 17 different villages and towns from the surrounding areas.
This area has always been under the heavy influence of the prosperity teachers. Such activities like training and helping them to grow and start teaching their own children in the churches is something new for them. We are in touch with them and we will be having more trainings with them in the future. Please keep this area and our ministry work here in your prayers.
Fellowship with Online Students
I teach three groups online every week. when God gives me opportunity to go and be with them personally, that is really great time. These times of fellowship really bless and refresh us all spiritually.
During these times I normally teach on specific topics. During this fellowship time our topic was “True Worship” and it was really helpful for all of us to see contemporary worship music, trends, tendencies and the concept of worship during this modern time and then compare that with the teaching of the Word of God about “True Worship”.
Vacation with family and team members
Last month we had an opportunity to participate in a conference on the topic of “Biblical Interpretation” (Hermeneutics) at a beautiful place in mountains. It was good to be at that refreshing and cool place for almost a week. Our whole team was really happy for this all. Our team members from the desert area had never seen mountains in their lives, so it was really amazing time for them to be there. We all had beautiful fellowship and and a very blessed time together.
We praise God for all that He has always been doing in our lives and also through our lives. We give Him all glory and praise Him for this. We are thankful to you all for your love, care, support and prayers. Thank you so much! We love you and pray for you and your families.
In Christ Jesus
