As Pastor of Christ Revival Church, my wife, Samina Rose, ministers
along with me among the women. I prayed for her for a year
before the Lord brought her into my life. Rose is an excellent
Bible teacher, and many other churches in the city of Lahore invite
her to preach. Our marriage
has brought forth three sons – Muqaddas,
Jonathan, and Imsia. Several years ago when I read The Woman
by Kenneth Hagin, my eyes were opened to what God thought
about women. Later, these verses touched my heart, “Judah has
broken faith. . . and has desecrated the sanctuary the LORD loves by
marrying the daughter of a foreign god. . . the LORD is acting as the
witness between you and the wife of your youth because you have broken
faith with her though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage
Non-Christian people here have
their own culture and other religious activities. Their religion really
pushes women down, not to mention this influence is also in Christianity
in Pakistan. Because Christ set us free is why I am struggling
with my church people to help the women in Pakistan--to uplift and show
them the truths of how Christ honors women. Our church is involved in
different ways ministering among the women.
Seminars: We arrange
seminars in different places as well in our local church, and women
preachers come to preach among the women. Men and women preachers
encourage our sisters in the Lord that they can preach also, and nothing
is impossible for women.
Books: Books are also
a very good tool to reach the women. Sometimes women do not have time
to attend the seminars, and books really become a blessing to them.
Thank God, schools, as well as academies, are open in villages for education.
The most effective way to reach people for Christ that we have discovered
is the cable network. In Pakistan women and men and children are fond
of watching television. God gives me vision to reach the men and women
through this avenue. We really appreciate our Lord using all the
technology to glorify Him. I have many testimonies of how God
touches the people through Christ Revival Church’s channel.
One family watches this channel every day. After six months, they
contacted me for a Bible, and I gave them one along with some Christian
literature. After studying the Word of God, they gave their lives
to Christ but said we don’t want to announce it in Pakistan.
God is so good and faithful.
Thanks to God for opening the door for us to reach the women in Pakistan
through counseling which is also very useful. Many times when
women ask questions, they get the answers in these counseling sessions.
In Pakistan, women are very shy and will not ask questions openly.
My wife trained some sisters how to handle them in counseling.
To send a group of sisters to nearby villages for outreach.
- Make a place to
accommodate those women who don’t have a home.
- Because of parents dying from AIDS, the oldest daughter in the family goes into prostitution in order to feed the younger children. While acknowledging that the parents broke the marriage covenant, causing their daughter to search for a way to feed the siblings without a moral compass, HIV/AIDS has spread quickly in Pakistan. We provide information and arrange seminars for women.
- We need your prayers
to accomplish all of these requests.
