Pray about everything.
Mehboob sends his greetings in the name of Jesus Christ to all the Reach the Nations team and to all who support this ministry with gifts and prayers.
"We give thanks to God for his love and blessings," he says, in his report on visits to the RTN ministry areas in Punjab that he and his team visited over the past few weeks.
He goes on to tell that they reach out to people in these villages to share the word of God, to give them hope, and to encourage their faith in Christ.
The picture above shows people gathering in an open area where they meet to learn, pray, and worship. There is no indoor place for them to meet in this village, so they are outside in the heat, the cold, and the rain. They are simply happy to be able to gather together no matter the weather.
In Bajle Mohallah, the believers are shown gathered in a house specifically to pray together. Mehboob says they hold the meeting in the one room available, but many times people come to sit outside of the room and participate from a short distance. "But in both situations," Mehboob says, "the people enjoy the experience with God during the meeting."
In Propenagara, there is a building offered where they have their worship and prayer meetings. Most of those attending are women and girls because the men are in the cities working during the week and come home late at night. The men join the meetings when they can, but are grateful they have jobs, though they are a distance away.
Pray for the people of Punjab that more will come to know Christ as savior, that they will grow in their faith, that God will raise up leaders in these local bodies of believers, and that strong churches will be established.
"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us." - 1 John 5:14
