Our plans and results
We plan about 20 meetings
during my stay here in and around
Last night we had our first meeting. We met in a courtyard of a church member with about 40 to 50 people. We worshipped and gave a strong presentation of the Gospel and praise Jesus we had 18 respond. We baptized them that night and headed home giving God all the Glory for using such people as us.
Praise Jesus for His abundant love he is pouring out on these poor forgotten believers in
Being baptized here is a powerful testimony to all. We bring in a portable baptism tank set it up and fill it with water. Many villages don't have running water and we fill it bucket by bucket. These faithful servants, Isaac our security man (who carries an AK-47) and others I don't know their names fill the tank with about 50 gallons of water and accomplish this near the end of my sermon so I can make the eternal call.
Friday night we went to a small Christian village about an hour out of town. There 7 came forward of about 18 to 20 people and then we prayed for the sick, and those who wanted a deeper touch of God. God is so able and abundant in His pouring out!
Saturday night we met at another small
Christian village near the first and had about
God honors his word in
Many who came forward for salvation /
baptism came with joy and tears. They heard of a God who desperately
loves them and desires to be their friend. Christians in
One lady in the first village above was present the second night. She had a knee that was swelled up severely and very painful even to a gentle touch. We prayed and the swelling left that night. She came for further prayer for a small pain still remained and Jesus removed it entirely.
Another had constant nausea and vomiting and was touched and healed. Another had severe kidney pain and it was removed in Jesus name.
Tonight we go to a village in a dangerous
All this week we are going to small villages and small churches to open hearts to the wonders of Jesus!!
Next week we start some crusade work where
we will be attracting maybe 1000 people per night. We anticipate we could
This is the very expensive phase and it appears I may still be as much as $5,000 behind. Never the less we press forward, "afflicted in every way, but not crushed: perplexed, but not despairing: persecuted, but not forsaken: struck down, but not destroyed: always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our body. For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh." II Corinthians 3:8-11
My brothers and sisters in the Lord, do we really understand the value of a single soul to God?
As I mentioned above I may still be $5,000 behind.
Urdu bibles, about 10,000 at about $3-4 apiece. Many of these Christians are extremely poor and cannot afford an Urdu bible. It does no good to send an English bible as they cannot read it.
God Bless you all may the Lord richly use you
Today it is much cooler for which we are
grateful. Pakistani P&L is not very reliable and on a hot day when it
goes off it can be miserable.
Oh the whole the people of
Through the robber area
Isaac loaded a couple more banana clips of 30 caliber AK-47 ammo into his pocket as we headed out to the village in the robber area. We knew it is dangerous to go, but everyone said, "We are baptized!" meaning they were secure in their Lord and would go non-the-less. So off we went and thankfully there were no confrontations. We got to the village and were met with great joy, drums and dancing, in which Shaun and I joined. 48 heard the message that night and were baptized. Praise God for His glorious work. The enemy is strongly opposing us with sickness, untimely power outages, threats etc.
Later in a nearby area we had a rally where over 200 attended. Here we had a man with an AK-47 on the stage area with us for protection. Several we had seen earlier were there and we rejoiced to hear that many we prayed for to be healed were! God is so good.
Total people brought into the Kingdom to have a living relationship with the loving God is now 102.
Our biggest meetings are coming. We have been working in the villages building the momentum for a large rally we plan next week where we anticipate thousands, perhaps up to 1,000.
Pray for the Lord of the harvest to give us unending joy and strength as we share the gospel with the lost. Pray for the Muslims that come to the Lord as they become instant targets of death squads for converting to Christianity. Islam is a wicked belief that practices all that is inimical to the Lord and is headed for judgment. Pray that God will open more hearts even thought the cost is so great.
God bless you all
This is my
final report about
Two types of weather, hot and hotter.
Two types of food, hot and hotter.
three weeks in a third world country, the
smoggy day in
The areas we were in were the poor Christian areas and most people cooked with wood or dried cow chips. The air was acrid also because of the motorcycles and rickshaws that had two cycle engines that spewed smoke. There were other sources too that I didn’t know what they were, but he air really stunk.
Yes and all the Pakistani’s shower or bathe with cold water, water you cannot drink or face a visit to the hospital.
Imagine a vast dance of bicycles, donkey carts, people on foot, beggars, cars,
small truck, big trucks, busses, rickshaws, motorcycles all weaving around,
lines no matter, lights not an issue, like a laminar flow of liquid, horns
honking, bumpers almost touching, no one getting mad, just everything flowing
and somehow all working. That is everyday traffic in

Muslim there is help from the local mosque for you, a paying job and help in

There is also a blasphemy law in place where if a Christian speaks of Christianity to a Muslim on the street the Christian can be put into jail. But a Muslim can speak against Christianity with no penalties. This blasphemy law is used much to economically hurt Christians as well because Muslims will claim blasphemy and use it to take property and money away from Christians who have it.
I have lost
any respect for Islam as I saw it being acted out. While in
Hope in Christ and Economic Hope
When I started this ministry the Lord spoke to my heart and said “I want you to bring my hope into hearts in these places I am sending you as well as economic hope.” I didn’t know exactly what He was talking about, but I wanted to just be obedient.
BEM is a
wonderful ministry bring hope to Pakistani Christians. I am working with
them to start a ministry of teaching Christians how to sew in the garment

The Bible school is going to send many flaming arrows out into the areas around that no one will be able to put out.
Total harvest in all meetings is 172 trophies of His grace! Hallelujah to Him who does all things well. Many were healed as well. Praise Jesus!!
Yes and what about me? Well I have been irrevocably changed. I have seen the Lord is rich and wonderful ways and I love Him supremely. I have walked in places to spread the gospel where my life was in danger and I loved it. I can find nothing else in this world that will satisfy me, but to walk with my Lord where He calls me.
He has given me a fantastic gift. I speak from the Living Word with out notes, but the Lord speaks through me. The people were amazed by this as I spoke for an hour just from the Living Word and it flow out of me. I am so grateful and thankful to my Lord and I give Him all the glory. I stand amazed at His grace to me such a sinner that He would allow me to do such a work.
My soul, ask what thou wilt,
Thou canst not be too bold;
Since His own blood for thee He spilt
What else can he withhold?
Oh that in me the sacred fire
Might now begin to glow
Burn up the dross of base desire
And make the mountains flow
“Breathe on me, Breath of God,
Till I am wholly Thine
Until the Earthly Part of me
Glows with Thy fire divine.
To make my weak heart strong and brave,
Send the fire.
To live a dying world to save,
Send the fire
Oh, see me on thy altar lay,
my life, my all this very day
To crown the offering now I pray:
Send the fire!

We must make our prayers as Vast as God and as High as Heaven and as hot as the flame on the altar.
My great love to you all.
