The man shown with Mehboob above is living in day-to-day desperation. He was working as a day labourer in houses of well-to-do people, often as a maid. But, during the time of the COVID-19 shut down, there is no work for him.
He had two sons to help with the family income, but the elder son became paralyzed and then died. His second son was working as a day-laborer, and he lost his hand while performing his work. The family has seen much grief and experienced much pain.
The visit by Mehboob and his team was a surprise for Muhammad Asghar, and he was very happy and thankful for this food package they provided. The food is essential to his survival during this time, and we should not underestimate the impact of someone noticing his dire situation and reaching out to help. Thank you, Reach the Nations team, for caring for this man.
Pray that Mehboob and Muhammad will be able to continue conversations about truths that matter well beyond this present life.
"Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me."
- Matthew 25:40b
