"PAKISTAN SHALL BE SAVED!"
Pakistan is the third largest Islamic nation in the world with a population of approximately 175,000,000. 97.2 % of the population is Muslim. Christians make up 2 % of the population and suffer more than any other ethnic or religious group. But in fact, Christians are not 2% but more than 10% and Christian leaders have registered a case for this that a true census of Christians should be done again. Pakistan is in the very heart of the 10/40 window, the geographic area where 95 % of the un-reached people of the world live. Between India and Afghanistan. India has a population of 1.2 billion on the heels of China with a population of 1.3 billion.
Pakistan is a strategic nation. After the September 11 attack, Pakistan has become the focus of the world. Pakistan is a country with different cultures, languages, people groups, economical backgrounds etc. Pakistan has a desperate need for assistance in evangelism, Church planting, literature outreach, leadership training and strengthening the local Church. 97 % of the newly planted churches and new believers need a place to worship and fellowship. A shortage of Bibles, Gospel literature, faith-based books, leaders and training material makes it difficult for Christians in Pakistan to grow in their faith and sustain relationship with Christ. More than a half of Pakistan's population has never heard about Jesus.
Pakistan is an Islamic country, ruled by Islamic law. Christians of Pakistan makes up a sizeable population with more than ten million souls. But they have to face religious discrimination, religious intolerance, oppression, social subjugation and economic deprivation. 40 key posts are restricted for Christians in Pakistan Therefore Christians are less privileged and backward. And there is 295c law on Christians (the law of blasphemy) and up to this point thousands of innocents Christians have been sentenced to death through this law. The growing body of believers continually struggles under government persecution, because it is officially illegal for Muslims to convert to Christianity. Since the country's blasphemy law was created in 1991, an offended Muslim can accuse a Christian on almost any grounds. False and arbitrary accusations of speaking against the Quran or Muhammad are a common practice by Muslim fundamentalists. In the persecuted environment of Pakistan, 90 % of the churches are not truly established. The majority of existing churches need buildings for fellowship, they meet in open air. Native missionaries make great sacrifices for the sake of the Gospel. Many times they go without food and travel hundreds of kilometers just to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to other areas. In some parts of Pakistan, Muslim fundamentalists attack them and forced them to quit their work as well as faith. Please keep them in your prayers as they seek to faithfully serve the Lord. See video under tab labeled "Child Slaves."
Islam may be the greatest challenge before the Church in this century, but it may also represent the largest potential harvest. There are one and one-quarter billion Muslims in the world, nearly 25% of the world population. Most have never heard the Gospel of God's grace in Christ Jesus. Instead they follow a religion based entirely on works and judgment. If we don't bring the grace of God into that world, the hostilities of this decade will only grow and intensify. Politics will not resolve this issue; only the Church has the answer.
This is harvest time and the fields are truly white and ready for harvest. Let's take the message of God's saving and healing power to the ends of the earth and bring in a mighty harvest of souls for God's glory. Together we can make a difference in the lives of millions for eternity.
"GOD WILL RESTORE TO PAKISTAN EVERYTHING SATAN HAS STOLEN."
