First, we thought you might enjoy this short video of a Hindu family listening to the Bible in their Sindh language. So many Pakistanis cannot read, so it is important for us to get God's Word to them in a way they can receive it. Audio Bibles are the answer for some.
Second, we want you to know that Gary Finkbeiner and Peter Negron of Reach the Nations Ministries leave tomorrow for nearly two weeks of ministry in Pakistan. Please pray for them as they preach and teach in churches and in meetings. Part of the trip will include meeting with our Pakistani team there who will be gathering in Islamabad to talk about the RTN ministry in Pakistan with a particular focus on the village outreaches in Punjab and in the Hyderabad area.
As this ministry grows, we are becoming more and more aware of the need for consistent and persistent prayer support. Between now and May 5, please keep these specific requests in mind:
Pray for traveling mercies and for their safety and health while ministering there.
Both men will be involved in a significant amount of teaching and preaching. Pray for effectiveness in communication and for the Holy Spirit’s enablement and power.
Gary and Peter will be meeting with the RTN Pakistani team in a group setting at Manzoor’s home. Pray for discernment and wisdom as they work with these young men and encourage them in ministry. Specifically, pray that the team will leave the meetings with peace of mind and with a sense of God’s blessing.
Pray for Manzoor in his leadership role and for Rashid and his family as Rashid ministers at Christ’s Church in Rawalpindi and also in a support role through RTN.
Pray for guidance in setting up additional meetings, particularly with those interested in our collaboration with Partners Worldwide as we work together to develop jobs for Pakistani Christians.
And be sure to give praise to God for what he had done already through RTN's team, both in Pakistan and in the U.S. His mercies are new every morning!
