Beverly Joseph shares an update on the fundraising initiative for Christian families in need in Pakistan, and outlines how the money raised is alleviating the suffering brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A big thank you to everyone for your continued support and concern for Christians in Allomahar, Pakistan. As mentioned in the last update, most of the families who were being helped have adults who have returned to work.
However, there are ten families remaining who still require support. These include those who are physically challenged and widowed ladies. Pakistan does not have a social welfare system and they are left without a means of support. They are being provided with monthly food funds to buy their own food supplies to the value of the supplies they were given before. This is because all of the local shops have now recommenced regular business and stocks are more readily replenished.
In the first picture above (with the purple background) is Robert, also known as Kala. He allowed us to share his story with you. His wife passed away two years ago, after which he suffered a stroke that left his right arm paralysed. This means that he is no longer able to conduct regular tasks with his dominant hand, and he has been unable to work to support himself. He is more than grateful for the love and support given to him through the relief effort and prays regularly for everyone who is making it possible for him to meet his basic needs.
If you would still like to contribute to the relief outreach, please feel very welcome to do so. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much. Take care and stay safe 🙂
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.Ephesians 3: 20-12
