There are many men in Pakistan who feel called of God to work in small churches in impoverished areas. They are paid week-by-week with whatever comes in the offering that day - usually not very much.
Then there can be complications. Like pregnancy. The man above pastors a fledging congregation and now his wife is pregnant and medical costs will need to be covered. Add to that the COVID-19 quarantine which has not allowed churches to meet for several months (now that restriction has been lifted), so income was non-existent during that time.
And then there is the pastor pictured above with Shakeel who was very ill and spent an entire month in the hospital. He is still having health problems, but we are hopeful he will be back with his congregation soon so he can serve as God has called him and, at the same time, some income will be coming to him and his family.
In addition to the pastors pictured above, Manzoor and his team were able to help eight pastors in Islamabad and Rawalpindi who likewise are struggling because they have not been able to meet with their congregations for more than two months. It is a privilege to be able to provide help to God's servants and their families
Pray for the men of God in Pakistan who are serving small congregations instructing them in the Bible and teaching them to know and follow Christ.
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." - Ephesians 2:10
