Queser, Mahmoud, Haroun, Naitan, Sadiq and others are bible college students in Pakistan who represent the leading edge of a movement of evangelists and disciple-makers that are redefining what it means to be missional in a country that seems to be so opposed to Christianity.
In the face of opposition, the missional priority for the Pakistan church became “Don’t let the darkness overcome the light.” The faithfulness and diligence of these church leaders is commendable. Many sacrificed a great deal, and it seems that God is doing something new in Pakistan.
A new generation of leaders is being raised that intends to ‘Be the Light.’
A new generation of leaders is being raised that intends to ‘Be the Light.’ There is a courageous and bold desire to reach out; to fearlessly and faithfully proclaim and practice the gospel. These young leaders are seeking to engage and address the spiritual, social and physical needs of their nation. Where possible they are eager to dialogue with those who fundamentally oppose their faith. Where dialogue is not welcome, they courageously continue to provide a faith-filled witness.
It is this movement that by God’s grace we have been invited to participate in. In each of the past two years, we have engaged in Impact Pakistan. We work closely with a group of interdenominational leaders representing ten bible colleges. We support mission work in Pakistan by consulting with these colleges to provide mission training and hosting mission conferences for their students.
At our last conference we had the great privilege to equip over one hundred bible college students for mission impact in Pakistan. These are the leaders that seek to remain connected. As they share what God is doing all they ask for is prayer and more training. Pastor Rashid, a victim of the Islamabad church bombing shared the following observation: “What you are doing to equip our leaders is the very best thing you can do for the church in Pakistan right now.”
This might seem like an audacious goal: in total, we will need $40,000. But you can make a difference in the lives of pastors like Queser with a gift of any amount.
The all-in-cost to train a student is just $200. But the impact is worth so much more! You will be laying the foundation for these young leaders to make disciples in the midst of opposition.
Give generously today to transform Pakistan forever.
