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!

In Christ Jesus
