Christmas Love offering Project for 150 Pakistani brick kiln workers

Christmas Love offering Project for 150 brick kiln workers, families, over age & young widows & Poor Children & Orphan Children

Dear in Christ,
Christ Assemblies Church International is Church-based registered ministry; since it’s established in 1996 it is engaged to spread a message of Gospel among believers and non-believers at different rural and urban areas of district Faisalabad. Preaching the Gospel of Jesus is our prime obligation for the fulfillment of The Great Command. We have been implemented many projects also for the social and economic empowerment of vulnerable and marginalized Christian people. The targeted beneficiaries of these initiatives are Brick Kiln Workers, women, and children.

Spiritual revival seminars, free Bible distribution, translation and printing of spiritual revival books, Sunday schools, and healing crusades and youth seminars are our evangelical activities as an ordained church. During our services among starving Christian people, we have identified and listed most deserving proposed beneficiaries for food package distribution as a gift on this Christmas. Since the last couple of years, we used to provide them food items on Easter and Christmas to celebrate their religious festival.  The food items with your generous support and contribution of 20 US$ for each beneficiary; will be served among 50 brick kiln worker families and 50 Children also will receive shoes and clothes & 50 over age & young widows. The brick kiln workers are most vulnerable people as they earn very less income. Most of the brick kiln workers are working as slaves under bonded labor. They have no basic facilities of life because brick kiln places are situated very far away from cities.

The identified 50 children belong to starving and deserving families and they must deserve new clothes and shoes on blessed event of Christmas. We can share our blessing with them as they are also beloved children of God. The Christmas would be a single time when they will receive new clothes and shoes once in a year with your kind support.
Widows and their families are also the neediest groups as they have no source of suitable income.  20 widows are of young ages and 30 widows are of elder ages. The old ages widows are helpless as they have no other member to support or their children have left them alone. The young widows are at the risk of sexual harassment at work places. On the other hand these young widows are illiterate and they have no any skills to earn a respectable income for their children.

Therefore, we request you all to support them and contribute as much as God directs you to show your love with these vulnerable Christian people for Christmas celebration. The food items for brick kiln workers and widows will be managed in 20US$ each and Children will be provided with clothes and shoes in 20US$ each. The detail of beneficiaries is as given below; We hope you will consider our request, kindly send us your generous support before 15th of December.

Pashtun bible finding Jesus

The Pashtun people come from Southeast Afghanistan and Western Pakistan. They are a special people group, with a rich culture and history. Some even claim to be one of the lost tribes of Israel! The Pashtun people are 100% Muslim, and have have a history of strong resistance to the Gospel. However, lately, we are hearing reports of dreams and visions of Isa al Masih (Jesus Messiah) among many Pashtuns! Will you pray with us today for Jesus Messiah to be revealed to the Pashtun people of Pakistan?

“‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” Joel 2:28

“اور تب اس کے بعد میں ہر انسان پر اپنی روح نازل کرونگا۔ تمہا رے بیٹے اور تمہا ری بیٹیا ں نبوت کرینگے۔
    تمہا رے بوڑھے لوگ خواب اور تمہا رے جوان آدمی رو یا دیکھیں گے۔”

Pakistan demographics

There are over 201 million people in Pakistan. That makes it the Sixth most populous country in the world. 96% of Pakistanis are Muslim. Most have not had access to the Gospel Message. Join with us today, as we pray for the Good News of Salvation to be proclaimed and accessible to all Pakistanis.

“In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.” Isaiah 12:4
پھر تو کہے گا، “خداوند کی ستائش کرو! اس کے نام کو سر فراز کرو۔ اس نے جو کام کئے ہیں اس کی قومو ں سے ذکر کرو۔  خاص کر کے تم ان کو بتا ؤ کہ وہ کتنا عظیم ہے !”
