People Living in Darkness being Reached

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen!
Matthew 28:19-20

Dear Friends and family.
Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan. We all are fine by the grace of God. The monsoon has started, and it is very hot and humid here these days. Everyone in the church and in our church office is fine. We are thankful to you all for your prayers, care, and support. 

Reaching people in the Desert Area

As you know, we have an outreach mission in the desert area where we are able to reach many unreached people groups and families. We have online Bible classes in the area and also whole-day teaching activities along with a special outreach program. These people in the desert are really very disadvantaged, they lead a very tough life, and they don’t have even basic needs in life. All the time, they are struggling with their survival issues. During the summertime, their life gets tougher than ever as most of them don’t have electricity or any water supply. They have to travel many distances to get water for them to drink and also for their animals. 

Their life does not allow them to think about anything else but their survival, but when you go to them, they are very hospitable. They give their time, listen to us, and share what they can. 

Evangelism Among Groups in Desert

We are reaching these areas which are very far from the city. the roads are not good, and it is not possible for the team to get back to the city. So many times, our team stays in those areas with these people. The evenings and night time is the best time for meeting with these people because it’s when they get free from their work.

There are some groups that we can reach again for follow-up but not all the groups. So we leave with them Audio devices with the Bible on it and any kind of helpful stuff that they can use for their spiritual growth. We have Gospels picturized (video format) that we show them, we leave some SD cards with them to put in their phones, and we pray with them, encourage them in the Lord, and share the love of Jesus Christ in the best possible way with these precious souls. Please keep the whole team in your special prayers.

Water-Pumps project

We’ve also started installing water pumps at the places of different groups who travel far to get drinking water. Right now, we are working on installing 10 water pumps for different groups and families. This is a great help for them, and this also opens doors for us to reach them and share the Word of God with them. 

We are again thankful to you for the prayers, love, and support. Please continue to pray for Calvary Chapel Pakistan’s all other ministries and activities for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

In Christ Jesus

Preaching the Word

Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.” 2 Timothy 4:2

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan, we praise God for His grace for us all and thank Him for all that He is doing in and through our lives. We all are fine, by the grace of God, and pray for our all friends and family to be safe and fine. We are also thankful to you all for the prayers, support and encouragement in all possible ways.

Preaching the Word of God to New Generation 

It is always on our hearts to reach, preach and teach our new generation. We see great gap between those traditional Christians majority that feels great attraction towards prosperity teaching and televangelists, and those young people who are going to universities and are more logical and rational. Since so many churches are not engaging these people very well, a large number of these young people feel that they don’t need church and their Christian teachings anymore. We’ve been always seeking opportunities to reach these groups and engage them in Bible studies with us. Our online Bible studies are going really well and those who come to those studies feel really blessed.

A seminar on Christology

At the end of last month, we organized a seminar in our town on the topic of “Christology: The Way, The Truth, and The Life”. We praise God that more thank 100 young men and women came to attend that seminar It was really great blessing for them all and for our team as well. We are trying to arrange more events like this to reach and teach these young people.
Female group did not join us in this photo

Special Fellowship with University Students

There are about 70 Christian students in a university in our town. They know us well, we invited them to our Christmas program last time. Now as they organized one Get-Together of all Christian students they invited me to share the Word with them. It was really blessed time for us all. We feel so blessed to share the Word with these very wonderful young men and women. We are connected with this group and we have offered them all kind of help for their Christian faith and Bible study

My Book-A great Help for Students

I praise God that I was able to write my first book on Christian Apologetics. The book is being used in a couple of Bible Colleges as Text Book on this topic. I was so blessed to be invited on the Convocation of Baptist Bible College Lahore as they used my book to teach their Students on the topic of Christian Apologetics. Students were very happy to share how helpful that book was for them. I really praise God that my effort is so helpful for these young people who are going to be leaders in the church. I am working on my second book about Spiritual Discernment and Mormonism. please continue to pray for me and my this writing project.

Brick Makers

Reaching out to the Brick Makers for all these years has been great joy and blessing for us and also for them. They live outside of town and are considered outcast of the society. We praise our Lord Jesus Christ for  setting great example for us to be one with people. We cannot explain the joy that this particular ministry gives each one of our team members. It is always so joyful to minister to these wonderful people. Please continue to pray for all these families.

News from Desert

We feel so happy to share with you that a group of Hindu tribe in the desert that we have been visiting, sent us some photos and videos recently. We felt very happy seeing them singing Christian songs and a boy sharing the Word with them. We’ve been going to them during all our mission trips in the desert. Please continue to pray for our up-coming mission trip as well.

We are thankful to you all once again, please continue to pray for our whole team, our families and all the people we are reaching, teaching and ministering to. God bless you all!

Reaching the Unreached

For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? -Romans 10:13-15

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan. We always praise God for Calvary Chapel Pakistan. We want to thank all of you who are there for us, praying, encouraging and helping in all possible ways. For last 14 years, we have been receiving your great love and care, and it has always helped us to remain focused on serving the Lord here in Pakistan. 

Church and Teaching

Our church is going really well. We have been studying the book of Revelation for last six months, and it is really amazing to study the book with our church which is studied least here and people have so many misconceptions about the book apart from all the eschatological views. 

In our weekly online studies in five cities now, we are studying the book of Genesis (every Tuesday, once a week). I cannot explain the joy when people contact us and say that this is the first time that they have come to know biblical teaching in the book along with many cultural facts and history to understand the book. We praise God for that all. 

The third main thing is our weekly video teaching which is being received truly well. Along with some other recording (full courses and studies, being recorded slowly and gradually) we are recording Bible’s book overview and it is being posted on facebook, youtube and shared through some other media platforms every week. It truly is much work, and we praise God for the energy that He gives us. Thanks for your prayers. But through this update I specially want to share with you about our outreach evangelism and women ministry. 

Outreach Evangelism

Desert Area: We have a wonderful brother near the desert whose main responsibility is to arrange and organize our weekly online class in his city, but God has really filled his heart to reach other people and share the Word with them. For many days every week he is traveling and reaching people with the Word. He has Bibles, song books and scriptural booklets. Thus he is reaching and teaching hundreds of people in his area. 

Brick Makers: In our own area, we have different groups of brick makers that we are reaching. We praise God for the opportunity to be with them, encourage them and teach them. Though they are so much oppressed in their lives, but spiritually they are growing and becoming stronger. We have really heart touching testimonies from these people and we give God all glory for His great work in and through our lives among all these wonderful people He loves. 

We have some other friends working among children and other brick makers, we try to provide them with Bible study material, scriptural booklets etc. and they are reaching and teaching different groups. 

Women Ministry

We have not been updating much about Women ministry during last many months. This ministry also has been growing in an amazing way. My wife has been reaching and teaching  ladies in the remote areas every week (she is doing that regularly). Now God has opened a door for her to teach to different groups of women in a very organized manner. She has volunteered herself to teach daily in a Women Bible Training Center where young Christian girls, Christian working women specially nurses, pastors’ wives, and Sunday School teachers come. We really praise God for all the wonderful ways in which he is using our lives here in Pakistan for His name’s glory.

Urdu Bibles

Every year we give hundreds of Urdu Bibles to the people who don’t even have a Bible at their home. We are thankful to you for the support for the Bibles and for all the other ministry work. Thank you very much once again, please continue to pray for us, and our upcoming mission trips to the desert area where we have whole day teaching and training.  God bless you and your families.

A Humble Start, but His Grace is Sufficient

Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”  –Lamentations 3:22-24

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings, We all are fine and pray for all of you to be fine and safe by our Heavenly Father’s Grace. We praise God for His Grace that always covers us and enable us to continue our journey of serving Him, we are thankful to all of you for the prayers and support. 

Snow and Sickness

We started our new year with really great enthusiasm, and we praise God for another year of His mercy in our lives. Our family planned to go to northern area in our country for few days during the first week of January to see snow and spend some good time there. It was really awesome to be at that place, we really had good time and we were very happy to see this aspect of natural life.

While we were fascinated by the life in the mountain and snow, we also learned how difficult it was to live in such weather. Everyday everything depends on the weather, and sometimes we felt stuck in the house during heavy snow fall whole day.

God brought us back safely from that place, but just after a week, all of us in the family started to be sick one by one. I was not well for more than one week, my wife, and all the children were sick with cold and fever. So the month of January was quite good but also tough as well for our family. We all are fully fine now and life is back on the same routine. We are thankful to all of our friends and family who kept us in prayers. God bless you all. 

Ministry work Resumes

We praise God that the ministry work is back on the routine and our online classes, our recording and outreach Evangelism activities are going on well once again. We give glory to God for all the work that is taking place in Pakistan.

We are thankful to all of you to keep us in your prayers, we look forward to accomplish much through our ministry work during this year, therefore we want to request all of you to please continue to pray for us. We pray for you and your family. God bless you!

In Christ Jesus

A Blessed Year Indeed!

Dear Friends and Family,

Merry Christmas! We hope and pray that you are fine. We praise God for all of His blessings, protection, and love. It is the end of year 2021, and we are thankful to all of you for the payers, love, and care. It was indeed a very blessed year, a very fruitful year, here at Calvary Chapel Pakistan.

We praise God that:

  • Our Christian organization got registered  this year after 3 years’ struggle and we are moving ahead with new things.
  • Our online classes continued now in five cities, teaching more than 130 people every week.
  • We were able to translate more than 1000 Christian theological articles into Urdu language which are really helpful for all of our students and many other people.
  • Pastor David Guzik’s Commentary on Acts was translated into Urdu this year.  Commentary on John and Jude were translated previously.
  • We translated and complied two very helpful books for Bible study each containing more than 300 pages. One is “Outline of every chapter of the Bible” and the other is “Survey of the Books of the Bible.”
  • Our outreaching ministry got extended to some more unreached people and groups where we are reaching and teaching more Christians to grow spiritually.
  • Both of our mission trips to the desert area were very, very fruitful! We organized special, whole-day training and teaching sessions this year and it was awesome!
  • Calvary Chapel Pakistan received a container of free Scriptural booklets from World Missionary Press Inc. this year!
  • Our recorded classes and materials are helpful for the people to get connected with us and grow in their Biblical understanding.

Recently We had our mission trip in the desert, here we want to share few photos of the mission week with you.

Outreach and Teaching to Hindu Tribes

This time we were able to visit two different Hindu tribes and were able to share the love of Christ and also the gospel of salvation along with food bags:

Two Whole-Day Teaching Sessions

We arranged two full-day teaching sessions and our topics for both day respectively were Authenticity of the Bible and Christology. This was totally new experiment in this area and it was really fruitful.

Special Teaching Sessions With Our Online Students. 

We had two teaching sessions with our students where I taught about gospel of Luke and book of Acts, mainly overview of the book of Acts and information about its author.

Outreach & Evangelism

We reached some new areas which were considered unreached, we received request from those areas many times. It was great to share the Word of God with them and also provide them Bibles.

There is much more that God is doing through CC Pakistan among the brick makers, women, and small weekly Bible study groups. Please continue to pray for us all. God bless you and your families. Have a very blessed Christmas time and very blessed New Year!

In Christ Jesus

Ministry of the Word of God

Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction. 2 Timothy 4:2

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings from Pakistan, we all at CC Pakistan are fine by the grace of God, the ministry also is going well. There have been some health issues in the last two months, but by the grace of God all is almost fine. I had some dental treatment and my wife had some stomach issues. She is still on medication. We know that you all pray for us and that is always great encouragement for us. We also pray for you and your family. 

Ministry of the Word in other cities

From the very start of our ministry God laid on our hearts to focus on the ministry of the Word, as the power of the Word of God changed our lives forever. We also experienced that teaching the word of God has been changing lives around us through our humble ministry. So most of our energy always goes to some kind of teaching of the Word of God. Some times it was disappointing as many people have so many other attractions. But we have always believed that His Word will never return void. So we praise God that we have started seeing the fruit of it. Many people who are connected with us in different cities, they are serving and particularly teaching the word of God and they send us the praise report through photos. Here we want to share few glimpses with you and request you to please continue to pray. 

Bahawalpur City (Near Desert)

Our friend brother Aftab has great passion to reach out to the unreached people in his area. CC Pakistan provides Bibles, Christian song books and other booklets to Aftab and his team. He travels every week to reach many different areas with the word of God, he provides people with Bibles and other study material. And he is the one who also organizes our weekly Bible class in his city where more than 40 people are studying the Book of Genesis with us currently. 

Sahiwal City

Our dear brother Suleman is a seminary graduate, he has been in contact with us during all his student life at the seminary in our town. He is really wonderful person and loves teaching the word of God. He really likes Calvary Chapel’s way of serving and  our focus to teach the Word of God to glorify our Lord Jesus Christ and God the father. We pray for him to be part of our team officially, right now he is learning from us in our weekly classes and also teaching in his town to a group of young people. He is also involved in outreach evangelism in his area by reaching the unreached Christians and by helping them in any possible way like providing printed/audio Bibles and other study material. Please keep him in your prayers. 

Faisalabad City

A brother in Christ named Dilawar came into contact with us some years before. Now he is regular Bible student at our weekly class. He has developed really great interest to study the Word of God during all these years after by studying in our classes. He and his wife are leading some children’s Bible study groups at their house. Calvary Chapel Pakistan has also been providing Children Bibles, scriptural booklets and audio Bibles to this couple. They are doing amazing job and are equipping many children with the understanding of their Christian faith. 

Sheikhupura City

In this city we have two online Bible classes going on. This is the place where I’ve been invited most of the time to teach. people love the Word of God, and our online students are really happy for the verse by verse Bible study. We have two groups of students in two different areas of this city and during this current visit for fellowship and teaching  at a place, an other group is willing to join us in the study. This is so amazing that while so much prosperity teaching, and different manifestation are going around them, they are listening from other people about our Bible studies and are desirous to join in. 

Women’s Ministry

The women ministry is going really well, Farah’s all-seminary study has been so helpful and she has been developing new classes for these women for better Bible study and also for Biblical counseling. This is really amazing ministry as most of the time, teaching Bible to the women is neglected in our society. We praise God for all that He is doing through this ministry. thanks for keeping this in prayers and always supporting CC Pakistan to continue this ministry. 

Upcoming Training and Mission

Current we have prayerfully planned to go to our second mission trip of year 2021 in the desert area. Last time we invited, hosted and provided training for Children ministry to about 200 people from the surrounding areas, along with reaching out to people in the desert and having some special teaching sessions with our students there. 

During this visit we have once again planned teaching for two whole days and we are expecting 100 church leaders there. One day we will be teaching about the “Person of Jesus Christ” (Christology) and the other day we will be teaching on Authenticity of the Bible.  Besides this we have plan to reach some areas, have fellowship, provide Bibles to people, pray and teach here. We will be reaching some tribal people also in the desert. Please continue to keep this all in your prayers. 

There is much more that God is doing through CC Pakistan like reaching out to brick makers, our church services, much of the translation of the Biblical study material and audio/video recording. Please continue to pray for this all and also for us all. Thank you very much for your all care, prayers and support. 

In Christ Jesus,
Pastor Nadeem Massey

Equipping the New Generation

“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.

Thy Word is Truth

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”_______John 17:17

Dear Friends and family,

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan, we hope and pray that you are fine. Much has been taking place during the month of February and March here in Pakistan. The third wave of Covid-19 is very strong in our country, we have witnessed the death of some dear ones. The vaccine is being provided here, but it’s very slow and the vaccine is only available for the medical related people at this time. During the month of March, most of the time we have been in lockdown and it will continue for some more time. 

 Bible Study Groups

We praise God that our online bible classes have been going very well and as these young men and women are learning the Word of God verse by verse. They are very happy and have developed great interest in studying the Word of God this way. Right now we have three Bible study groups in two cities, and in each group we have about 40 students. 

We are reaching this new generation with the Word of God and it is powerfully transforming their lives. Please keep this teaching ministry in your prayers. 

Bibles and Bikes

We praise God that we have received 400 regular Bibles and 400 Children’s Bibles for the year 2021. We need Bibles every year for our outreach mission. These Bibles go to very far and remote areas where people are not often reached by the churches or Pastors. We evangelize in those areas and provide them with the Word of God. 

God has also blessed CC Pakistan with two new bikes for outreach. Our old bikes were bought in 2016 and we were having some problems while traveling on them. God has provided these new bikes this month! We praise God and we are thankful to you all for the prayers and support. 

Brick Maker’s Outreach

For almost 10 years now we are regularly reaching the poor brick makers’ community to share the word of God with them and encourage them in their Christian belief. We praise God that their new generation is able to go to schools and they are able to read the word of God themselves.

Please continue to keep these people in your prayers and if the Lord lays it on your heart to help them in some way, it will always be a great encouragement for these precious souls. 

Desert Mission

The mission in the desert continues! We have one Bible class in that area which is a truly amazing tool for opening the door into that area and also for opening the hearts and minds of those people to learn the word of God.

This is a vast mission field with many dimensions. We had planned a mission trip to the place right after Easter, but now because of lockdown we will need to reschedule our mission plans. Please keep our team and the people of this special area in your prayers. 

Our church, women’s ministry, and families are doing well. My wife Farah graduated from a seminary recently, it was really helpful for her as she has a heart to serve in Biblical Counseling. God is really Good, we are thankful to all of you once again and want to request that you please keep us all in your prayers. We love you all and pray for you!

CC Pak in 2020

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
And establish the work of our hands for us;
Yes, establish the work of our hands.
Psalm 90:17

Dear Friends and family, 

Greetings, we hope and pray that you are fine. We all at CC Pakistan are doing well and are thankful that God has protected us during all the tough times of 2020. This year was not easy for most of the people in this world because of the Covid-19 plague, but the Lord has been doing great things in our lives and through the ministry of Calvary Chapel Pakistan. As the year has come to the end, we want to share a snapshot of what the Lord has faithfully accomplished in this part of the world. We are thankful to you all for the prayers, support and care. 

Teaching Ministry in 2020

Without any knowledge that the world was coming to a stand still from March onward for many months, we prayerfully, with a new vision, started our online classes in two cities and God very amazingly and graciously provided for our needs to do that. These classes have been a really great tool in the hands of our Lord. We started with 35-40 students in one place, and almost same number in the other city. Now at the end of this year, there are about 75 more students interested in joining our class and those who have been studying are growing in the spirit and knowledge of the word of God in really amazing ways. It is really time consuming to bring these people out of the Word-faith, prosperity teaching they had received and feed them solid food of the word of God. We started with “Introduction to the Bible,” then we had a series on “The Authenticity of the Bible,” our next class after that was “The Centrality of Jesus Christ in the Bible,” and recently we finished one series on “Spiritual Discernment.” Now our students are ready to start “Basic Theology” classes with us. It took us almost one whole year to bring them to this place. Please continue to pray for these classes. 

Vision for Teaching in 2021

As our students have increased and our online classes have developed, people’s interest in studying the Bible, developing a researching habit, growing in spiritual discernment, and learning about basic Christian doctrine has grown. Because of this we feel that we can start a Certificate program in biblical studies here in Pakistan. During this year we have been working on many teachings and articles, translating them into Urdu and putting them on our website. We believe that this project will be used by God to start some proper teaching here in Pakistan. We want to request you to please keep this in your prayers. 


The recording project is very much related to what we shared above. God provided vision and provision for this ministry. We are recording audio and video series of Bible classes in the Urdu language. God made this possible for us this year and while we were not able to go out for other activities, working on this project was a very productive use of the time. The work on this project continues and, God willing, very soon we will have enough resources in Urdu to lay a solid foundation for the spiritual life of all those people who are coming into our contact for learning. We ask you to please continue to pray for this special project as well. This is great thing that we were able to start in this year and it is already proving to be very helpful.   

Reaching out to the unreached

We have been reaching to some very unreached groups for many years. These groups are poor, slave-like brick makers. We still go to them, share the word of God with them and encourage them to remain faithful though they face much discrimination and other pressures. We praise the Lord that their new generation is now able to read the Bible by themselves. The work of 6-7 years has started to bring very positive spiritual change in the new generation. The children of those who only listened to the words of the Bible from us, are now able to read the Bible and share the word of God with their families. 

During this year we were also able to go to a very vast but neglected mission field. God has provided needs so far and we are able to reach some very amazing but almost totally

unreached people. The Lord is also leading us to reach some of the Hindu tribes, many of them have come to Christ and they are leading a very tough life. This mission is giving us the opportunity to reach, teach, bless and encourage those dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord to remain strong and steadfast and to grow in the Lord. This work is going to grow and it will also require a lot of energy and much more in the future. We ask you to please keep us all and this whole project in your prayers!

Women Ministry

Women’s ministry is also one very important ministry that CC Pakistan has. We could not update much on this during this year. Things were slow because of Covid-19, but this ministry has been going well and building many young girls and women in their Christian faith. 
This ministry seeks to start two more Sewing Center projects next year. One will be near our place but the other one is planned for the unreached tribes in the south part of our province where we are reaching through our church Mission. Please continue to pray for all of this. We are thankful to you for supporting this project of Calvary Chapel Pakistan. 

Special Thanks
We also want to send very special thanks for all of you for keeping us in your prayers. Your presence as our interceders always encourages us. When we know that there is a team of spiritual warriors on their knees for us, we feel very comfortable and strong while we serve here. We want to request that you please continue praying for us all, and we will also be appreciating your special support and care. God bless you and your families! We love you all! Wishing you a very blessed time at Christmas!

In Christ Jesus,
Pastor Nadeem Massey

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!
