Shakeel and his Reach the Nations team delivered food to the village of Mirpurkhas last week. Here are a few pictures to tell the story. First they made all the purchases in a nearby town, they carried it to Mirpurkhas in a rented truck:
Again, we see women with their faces covered. Shakeel tells us this is because of their Hindu background and, sometimes, the requirement of their husbands. Those with husbands who are more understanding are allowed to be in public with their faces uncovered. Shakeel comments that the lack of face coverings makes it easier to communicate with the women when he tries to minister to them with the Word of God and in prayer.
The people of Mirpurkhas have suffered with the government shut down of many businesses and jobs because of COVID-19. Without work, they cannot purchase food. We have provided for another month for many families in this village and they are grateful. Thanks to all who are supporting this work!
