We love posting testimonies of all that Yahuah is doing in Pakistan! We pray all of the progress blesses you, especially if you have sown into the work!
We never want to minimize the most important progress of all, which is that the people of Pakistan are turning to Yahuah through His Son Yahusha on a continual basis! We see deep, child-like faith and a hunger and desire for the truth of the Word. And through this faith, we see testimonies of deliverance and healing! We also post many of these testimonies as well.
This particular post is another testimony of provision. As we are approaching the winter months, there has been an increasing need for coats and shoes, which has been one of our priority goals as outlined on the Donate page (many of the people are without shoes and are forced to go bare foot, even while working in the brickyards!). And of course, our good goals are ongoing until all of the gardens are purchased and producing.
Recently, funds provided enabled a large purchase of both coats and shoes and more food, which will make this winter much more bearable for the people! We are still collecting for these items to meet our overall goal. Enjoy these pictures and just imagine the joy of the people beholding this provision, knowing that Yahuah sees their need and loves them!
Through the generosity of the followers of Yahuah, much provision has been made to the people of Pakistan that will allow them to sustain their progress, whether it be in the area of basic needs or in the worship of the Almighty!
Just in the last few months, we have had goals to provide what was needed in the areas of both growing food via gardens as well as creating a place of inside worship for the people, relieving them from the extreme seasonal elements.
Much progress has been made with both of these efforts, and we would like to testify of this goodness! None of this would be possible without the faithful prayers and giving of Yahuah's people as well as the faithfulness and hard work of those in Pakistan! We celebrate our Heavenly Father today, as HE HAS DONE THIS! HalleluYah!
Aside from the ongoing needs of the people, we have a more emergent situation that needs our immediate compassion and attention. This story is something we have likely not heard in America.
The people in one of the villages we support in Pakistan had sold themselves to a brickyard for food and housing to survive. The brickyard wall fell and injured 13 families there and shut down the brickyard due to damages. The owner wants the people to rebuild the brickyard or be on the streets. He is blackmailing them that if they don't keep quiet about his fault, he will jail them for not paying their loans. We need to raise $2,500 to buy their freedom and give them sewing machines to earn some money on their own. If we can do this, we can free approximately 100 people from slavery to the brickyard.
May Yahuah move on your heart to help us meet this goal. Please go to our Donate page and help us provide freedom to our brothers and sisters who have not known freedom as we do! We will also continue to help these people with donations of food, water, clothing, bibles, and basic necessities. PLEASE HELP US HELP THEM!!
Below are some of the pictures of the people working in the brickyards, of which many are women and children.
Here Come the Goats!
In correlation with the last post regarding our progress with the land and gardens, we would also like to share that we have had two wonderful people come forward with the suggestion to purchase goats and chickens for the people, which will also provide additional means of food! And both of these people have offered their help and resources to make this a full success!
Below are pictures of the first addition to the family of animals! We are so very excited and thankful for this latest gift of provision for the people! Praise Yahuah, from whom all blessings flow!!
A Sobering Reality
We preface this post by stating that what we will share with you is a sobering reality of what our brothers and sisters in Pakistan endure and see, even in cases, on a regular basis. We would also like to say that it is our goal to only share authentic pictures and details given to us by our leaders, as they obtain from either their own eyewitness or someone they trust.
As we all know, the winter is approaching in Pakistan just as it is here. The people are in dire need of clothing and blankets to stay warm, and we have already made progress in addressing this need (pictures below). But also in addition to this, there are even more dire circumstances for the homeless. While we realize that it will be difficult to address and solve every need of the people, it will not stop us from trying. We have recently worked with one of our leaders in Pakistan to arrange a home for two widows and their children, and as soon as today or tomorrow, we are hopeful that they will be off the streets! We can only imagine the joy and relief this will bring to them! We are hopeful to get pictures of this to share as well!
While it is our ultimate goal to do everything we can to help, we do not desire to pressure anyone into participating in or donating towards this goal. We only provide the truth of what is going on and present it as an opportunity to help and make a difference, as the hands and feet of our King and Savior Yahusha. And it is true that with the blessing of Yahuah, we ARE making a huge difference! If you are moved to help with this cause, please go to our Donate page. And in all cases, your prayers are just as important, so please pray for our efforts and for the peoples' needs to be met quickly! We sincerely thank you!
As we shared a few update posts ago, we have now purchased and leased land to create gardens for the people that will provide food on an ongoing basis. Also important, this land will enable some of the people to leave the hard labor of the brickyards where they were working for daily food rations.
As of today, we have now successfully acquired land as follows:
-- leased 4 acres for one year each (The contracts on these leases are written such they cannot be taken from
the people during or after the lease, unless the rent is not paid. The rent is being paid annually at $600 per
acre, and we are seeking to lease one more acre at $600.)
-- purchased two 25 x 25 plots (We have the written deeds in hand, and the people own this land! We are
working to purchase two more plots at $800 each.)
We would like to now share pictures of the progress on some of the land and how it is flourishing with veggies such as radishes and turnips, along with herbs such as coriander and methi; and even more!! Other parts of the land are currently being prepared for planting for winter crops; we will share more on this as things progress. (If you would like to see before pictures of the land that is now producing, go to this previous post.)
We praise Yahuah for His will in this regard and continue to ask for His life, breath, and living water to cause the gardens to grow and flourish! We are so very happy for the people that they have received this gift of life!
As we continue to teach the people the fullness of the truth of Yahuah's word and pray with them, we see child-like faith growing and producing fruit, along with wonderful testimonies!
Below is the testimony of a woman who battled both diabetes and high blood pressure, and because of faith and prayer, she is no longer experiencing symptoms!
Many of the testimonies we see often are of this magnitude! The people simply believe, and Yahuah moves! Praise His holy name!
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child,
the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
... for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Prayers for the People!
In today's post, we want to focus on the people in a particular village who are basically indebted with their lives to brickyard owners. This debt is due to loans the people took from the owners in order to obtain basic living necessities. These people have no freedom; they are bound to the brickyards until their debt is paid. Obviously, anyone who knows the Bible can see how this story mimics the children of Israel, bound in Egypt. This is still happening in our world today!
We at Winning Pakistan do not pretend to be able to solve all of the atrocities that we see in Pakistan (realizing this i not just limited to Pakistan), as they are great beyond our imagination. But once we are made aware, then we know that we must do something, even if it is simply to pray. As a matter of fact, prayer can open the heavenly floodgates of provision and redemption that we could never control or manipulate even in our zeal to help. And it is this where we ask you to come into agreement with us... in prayer!
Please pray for the redemption, release, and restoration of these people, now bound into slavery and barely getting by from day to day. They need our fervent prayers and our love, and our obedience in prayer will move our Father's heart towards them and hear both our cries and theirs! (Emphasis in red below)
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand [heart] wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
Needs Update & Related Testimony
We are making very good progress on our current needs for our families in Pakistan and would like to provide an update and testimony.
First, please note that with winter soon approaching, our priority at this time is coats, shoes, and socks for many people. These people lack the clothing needed to keep them warm, which will be especially challenging if the winter is harsh. Please pray the resources are received to get them all they need!
Below is an updated snapshot of our needs as well as what we have received in donations (in red). Please praise Yahuah with us that we recently received all the funds needed for the worship center (another means of staying warm in the winter!), and prep work is underway both inside and out! This is a wonderful testimony!
Work of the Women
Back a few months ago, the WP ministry was able to provide funds for sewing machines for the women to both make their own clothing and offer clothing for sale as a means of substance, outside of working in the brickyards. Pictures of this can be viewed on the Gallery page down towards the bottom of the page.
We just received more pictures of the work they are doing with their new sewing machines, and the results are beautiful! The quality and color of the materials is dynamic and alive! We can only imagine the joy these women are experiencing while using their gift of creativity given to them by Yahuah to create beautiful things that can help provide for them and their people!
Enjoy this wonderful testimony of great reaping that is resulting from just a few sown seeds! Praise Yahuah!!
How exciting to have a goal and see it begin to come to fruition! This might be a little longer post, but it is oh so exciting and filled with pictures of blessing!
We recently purchased a small plot of barren, dry land, with the intention of following biblical principles to transform it into a fertile garden that will feed the people! And this is exactly what is happening!
Our master gardener, David K, is working with Jennifer in Pakistan to create this wonderful, long-term solution to the food needs in the nearby villages. This garden, along with the others we are working to create, will provide food, work, and and further substance to the people -- not to mention the wonderful feeling of having their own means where they can work together for the betterment of their people.
None of this would be possible without our Father's blessings of the land purchase, gardening wisdom, and the willingness of the people to believe and act! We are also in the process of purchasing more plots and also working with Sheraz to lease land to help many of the villages. Seeing the sowing turning into reaping for such a deserving people is an absolute blessing!!
The before and after pictures are a beautiful testimony to the miracles and changes that are happening in Pakistan... all through LOVE!!
He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
Land After (we have growth!!)
Today, Chand (one of the Pakistan leaders) shares pictures of some of the children and what a day in their lives looks like. What strong and courageous children they are, stepping up to do the work that usually is performed by adults. These children miss the freedom and carefree life of childhood, but by the grace and love of our Father, they endure! We love the children of Pakistan, and it is our goal to help change things for them so that they can be children as long as possible!!
