We have a new member of the Reach the Nations team in Pakistan. His name is Shahzaib and he is shown here with his wife Anita and their daughter Jerosha. Another baby is on the way!
Shahzaib became a follower of Jesus Christ in 2013 and immediately began to minister as an evangelist, telling others about forgiveness and salvation that could be theirs through faith in Jesus. He testified in the Hyderabad area and also in villages of Sindh.
He and Shakeel, already an RTN team member working in Sindh, met and became well acquainted as fellow laborers in God's Kingdom. Shakeel recommended Shahzaib to RTN and, after interviewing him, RTN agreed to sponsor him for the four-month full-time leadership and theology program at CLTI. Shahzaib successfully completed that program, graduating in April of this year.
He now joins Shakeel and Rustam in evangelism, discipleship, and church planting work in the province of Sindh. The picture below shows Shahzaib with Shakeel (center) and Irfan (right) together at CLTI in Karachi.
Here is Shahzaib's request: "I am praying, and I also ask you to pray for me, that God will lead me and fulfill his work, and use me for his kingdom in Sindh."
"Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, 'The Lord reigns!'” - 1 Chronicles 16:31
