Open Hearts in Pakistan01/24/2011 — World Challenge Missions
Several months ago news report told the world of yet another natural disaster. This time in northern Pakistan. Unusually high seasonal rains overflowed local rivers and streams — at one point covering one third of all Pakistan —devastating land, animals, structures and millions of lives. World Challenge immediately responded by partnering with local believers, whom themselves were affected, to reach out to thousands in desperation. It would be like the effects of Hurricane Katrina but multiplied many times over.
So today the work continues after the initial relief efforts as urgent needs exist to rebuild some level of normalcy in daily living. Many Christians are finding new opportunities to share Christ as the crisis has opened so many hearts. The religion of the past, and traditions of men, are giving way to relationships with God and His church! Our work is not complete as many are yet to know our Lord. We invite you to view the brief video on this crisis and our response.
