A fresh wave of persecution in Pakistan and India is aimed at the church. Afghan refugees in Pakistan are being ejected back into Afghanistan and will be persecuted again. EEF is changing its emphasis to provide literature in all the Central Asia languages to undergird the education and training of the emerging churches in CA including Afghanistan. The Pakistan government is ejecting illegal refugees and there are many believers amongst them. They are being fined $1,200 to be able to leave the country to a safe place, Donations are quickly needed.
Pray for wisdom and the right words for the workers of ChrisFon, to effectively share the message of hope with those in Afghanistan seeking the Gospel. Pray for ChrisFon's efforts to provide mosquito nets and repellents for rural families in flood-affected areas of Pakistan, keeping them safe from diseases like dengue fever and malaria.
Trishkova is stuck in Islamabad looking for sponsors to get out of Pakistan, Yalda needs funds to pay the fines for overstaying her time in Pakistan (all Afghans are being squeezed this way) and Farid is coordinating ministry from Canada to the many believers he has been in touch with, in Afghanistan.
Pray for the preparations and translation work for 15 days of prayer for Hindus that God would use these resources to create awareness among churches and believers and to generate more prayer for the South Asian Diaspora.
Three believing ladies are stuck in Pakistan in great poverty and distress. We need to see them adopted and sponsored to help them get out. Pray for Shukria (which means Thankful) as she needs to get to Pakistan for treatment for cancer. She is a 65-year-old widow who served to train Afghan women in carpet weaving and the gospel.
Working alongside other Christian partners, the Feba Pakistan team is developing the use of community radio to speak to the needs of their own communities, helping to reduce fear and bring hope to local people. Please pray for the follow-up teams who engage with different audiences via shortwave and FM radio, Facebook and other social media platforms and websites. Ask the Lord for His patience, guidance, and love as they gently listen and offer wise counsel and godly advice. Please pray for more opportunities to help people discover a saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Feba Pakistan operates and broadcasts in an environment where there is insecurity and the constant threat of violence. The team is helping to address local issues and change attitudes in Pakistan by training local broadcasters. Please pray for creativity and inspiration for the production teams, artists and writers as they work together to communicate the Gospel message effectively and sensitively through a variety of platforms and broadcast media. Pray that the message of hope will reach the hearts of all those listening and engaging with the team.
