THE MISSION FIELD
All over the world, our triune God continues to generate saving faith through His Word and Sacraments. We are called to be wise and generous with the time, talent and treasure we've been blessed with to maximize the opportunities to spread the Gospel He lays before us. Pakistan beckons!
HUNGER FOR TRUTH
The Word of God is distorted among many of the Pakistan Christian denominations and there is little or no understanding of the Sacraments. The poverty rate is high among the Christian minorities due to lack of education and job opportunities. There is a need for Bibles, Catechisms, Lutheran Service Books, food, clothing and daily necessities.
The seminary fees are paid by the LCMS Eurasia mission arm; however laptops, educational materials, incidentals and travel to Europe in 2022 for intensive courses are at the students’ expense. There are currently 9 seminarians who are studying full time, have a family to care for and work to earn a modest living. There is great need for subsidy.
HOUSE OF WORSHIP
Christian worship must occur in public and home worship is forbidden. Rental space is limited and land is expensive. To construct a church building, an urban lot needs to be purchased with cash in advance. In addition to the structure, there is a need for furnishings and supplies. The need to accumulate a building fund is urgent.
CALLED TO BE SAINTS TOGETHER WITH ALL THOSE WHO IN EVERY PLACE CALL UPON THE NAME OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, BOTH THEIR LORD AND OURS. 1COR 1:2
This is a new registered church body presence in the country of Pakistan, where the Christian population likely comprises less than 1%. In the United States, the organization with this name is recognized by the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod as the official conduit for providing support and resources needed for training pastors and building infrastructure in Pakistan.
