Church Building

“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”____Galatians 6:9

Dear Friends and Family,

Greetings from Calvary Chapel Pakistan! we all here are doing great and want to thank you for always covering us with your prayers! We are sorry that we have not been able to keep updating you about the church here, we will be providing you some short updates now more frequently!

Church Building

The main thing that we need to update you about right now is the “Church Building” We know it is a little delayed and many of you have been prayerfully waiting for this special project to start. First of all we want to share with you the location of our church. The area where we have purchased the land for the church is not very developed, it is developing slowly and might take few years for that. We have planted our first Calvary Chapel in this area and, we had been having the church service and fellowship with these people for two years now, our congregation consists of very neglected Christian families in the town. They have been living here for last 30 years but they did not have any particular pastor or church. So We started going to them and planted our church there. We have been praying for the Church building, and Lord has blessed us with the piece of land and also support to have our own building in near future.

The reason for the building procedure to be slow is that we have to walk very wisely as we live among most of non-Christians, most of them don’t like to have a church building in their neighborhood, so we had to do all the ground work for that, we need to go slow and steady. We are still in process of getting full permission from our government for Church Building, meanwhile we have started to work on the first phase which includes, boundary wall around our piece of land, filling some dirt in the area to raise the ground level, lay solid foundation for the main building, have a small room in our piece of land which will be used for many purposes including weekly fellowship till we have main sanctuary, and puting a gate there. Here are some of the photos that we want to share with you where you can see how we started and how far we have reached.

Main Foundation and Room

This is the progress of the building so far. Though we won’t be entering into the second and final phase of our church building yet, but our congregation will have a walled place and a room to get together, have main service and fellowship. Our congregation is excited that they will have main service for Christmas at this place. We are thankful to Saving Grace Mission’s team, thanks to you all friends and family for keeping us in your prayers and for supporting us. We love you and pray for you here!

In Christ Jesus
