The persecution, unfairness & treatment of Christians in Pakistan has seen it climb up the ladder ( that no country wants to climb ) of the top 10 most persecuted countries in the world. It currently sits at number 5.
Our team in Pakistan play a vital role, demonstrating & sharing the Gospel, been careful but also been bold. We thank Jesus that no matter the consequences or persecution, there are warriors out there going from town to villages helping, blessing, praying and providing for the people in the name of Jesus. This is showing the recipients that no matter what, nothing can stop the Name of Jesus been preached. Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
Our location for training pastors, leaders, elders and discipleship programs is going well. They recommenced this week due to covid the last 4 months stopping the teaching program. However during that time our team have been feeding hundreds of people, proving good parcels, clothes, medical costs & bibles. Showing everyone that even during a crisis time, Believers Fear not and are there for the people. That Jesus is powerful. Our team leaders have also been travelling to villages and towns sharing Jesus with groups of people. Ministering in house groups & small churches.
Also, we still have been freeing families and individuals from brick kilns. Paying their ransom/debits and setting them free in Jesus Name. After we free them, we take them to a safe place located hours away from that brick kiln. Feeding them food and blessing them with some money/materials to start a new life. The joy & happiness can been seen all over their faces, jumping in joy and cannot believe that they are free! Praising Jesus for making a way when there was absolutely no way out!
So as we start 2021, we continue to preach, teach, serve and Influence both the church,the pastors & the communities. The Gospel will always go on as it always has, because as Hebrews 13:8 says, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. With that in mind friends, let us apply Hebrews 12:1-3 , So let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.
All Glory be to Christ for allowing us to be part of His Echo in a persecuted nation such as Pakistan. Please join us in praying for Pakistan, the body of Christ, and our Echo Love team. God Bless you friends.
