Winning Pakistan has its foundation on the Word of Yahuah. This ministry was birthed by bible studies that began between a Pakistani man seriously seeking Yahuah and the founder of the ministry here in the US. This beginning blossomed into a spreading of the gospel of Yahusha the Messiah and all of His truth as far as the ministry could take it.
Our biblical foundation is firm, and therefore, one of the main things that we donate to the people of Paksistan, outside of food and other necessities, is bibles. Earlier in February, the donations of the generous people who sow into this ministry allowed us to once again distribute bibles to several villages. There have been times when the people, although lacking in food and clean water, request bibles as their first choice.
We pray they are fed and nourished by the pure Word of Life!
We are so pleased to provide an update on the land we leased about two years ago in Pakistan, thanks to the generous donations of those who sow into this ministry. This land is in Village 66/GD under Sheraz's leadership.
We started with a barren one-acre plot of land and worked very hard, already producing two harvests of about 75% wheat and 25% vegetables; and we are now waiting on the third harvest! The first harvest was enjoyed by the people of the village, and the second harvest was used to provide the funds needed to renew the land lease for this year.
The upcoming harvest will provide wheat, turnips, onion, radishes, potatoes, and garlic for the people. We expect the first harvest of most of the vegetables in the next few weeks and the wheat harvest and rest of vegetables a bit later.
Our Father, Yahuah, has provided this land and all its produce, and it has provided much hope for the people! We give all praise to Him!
Update: One of the WP leaders/interpreters in Pakistan reports that he received information from an attorney in Pakistan that as of midnight (Central Time) last night that the threat of martial law is now over. The neighboring Muslim nations of Saudi Arabia and UAE will come to the aid of Pakistan and loan them the money to pay off their debt to the IMF (International Monetary Fund). Here is an article with more information about these loans to Pakistan from Saudi Arabia & UAE from January 12, 2023.

"The possibility of tax on transactions of Rs 50,000 per day from the bank has been revealed. According to sources, tax proposals are being worked on in the Ministry of Finance to meet the conditions of the IMF. Withholding tax may be levied on bank transactions of more than Rs 50,000 per day.
It has been learned that the proposed tax will not be applicable on the persons included in the list of active tax payers, while the FBR authorities have estimated the revenue of Rs 45 to 50 billion from the imposition of withholding tax on non-filers. It has been reported that some other proposals for the proposed Presidential Ordinance on the increase in taxes are also being worked on."
This may have an impact on the Winning Pakistan ministry. Withholding tax may be levied on bank transactions of more than Rs 50,000 [US$190.06] per day. Please join us in prayer for Pakistan during these uncertain times.

"Former finance minister Hafiz Pasha warned that Pakistan’s inflation can skyrocket to 70% in case of default. Even if the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) loan is revived, inflation will still rise to at least 35%, owing to the lender’s strict conditions.
Addressing members of the Pakistan Industrial and Traders Associations Front (PIAF) on Tuesday, Pasha forecasted that Pakistan’s overall economy is likely to remain in severe stagflation in 2023.
“If the government implements the key reforms agreed with the IMF, including a Rs50 levy per litre on POL, an electricity tariff hike of 40%, doubling of the gas tariff, and shift to market-based exchange rate policy, the inflation rate could exceed 35%,” he cautioned. If the government does not implement the agreed reforms, he said, “It will lead to a termination of the IMF programme and will virtually dry-up the country’s capital.”
“Our reliance on expensive foreign loans has proven to be disastrous. In the first 65 years, the country’s debt was $65 billion. This jumped to almost $130 billion in the next seven years as we enhanced our reliance on high interest loans that are difficult to payback,” he highlighted."
An attorney told one of our Pakistan leaders that martial law is going to be declared within days if Pakistan defaults. Please pray for the people in Pakistan. Either way, the Pakistan economy is going to take a hit and it will be more expensive to provide aid to our brothers and sisters in Pakistan. If you are able, please consider donating to our brothers and sisters in Pakistan before the bank transfer taxes are implemented and before inflation sky rockets in Pakistan.
Thank you for the recent emergency donations that were made over the last 24 hours based on this news. May Yah bless you for your kindness and compassion.

A speaker is needed for large outdoor bible studies. A speaker is $45. Please join us in prayer that Yahuah would supply the funds for this need. Thank you for your support and prayers.
A canopy is needed for bible studies that are held outdoors. They wish to protect the students from rain and snow in the cold season and sun in the hot season. A new canopy is $500. Please pray that Yahuah would provide for His children and meet all of their needs. Thank you for your prayers and support!
Villages in Pakistan need 20 bibles. Urdu Bibles are $8/each, so they need a total of $160. in Urdu Bibles at this time. Please pray that Yahuah would provide His new children with His Word. There are children that need Winter Clothing because they are getting sick while enduring cold temperatures with no heat and/or electricity in their homes, and no warm clothing. Please join us in Prayer that Yahuah would supply His children with the warm clothing that they need. Thank you for your prayers and support.
Between June and October 2022, Pakistan had unprecedented floods. Cropland and villages still remain under water, and almost 10 million children remain in need of immediate critical support. One of our small-scale farms was directly impacted by the floods. The land was flooded and they were unable to harvest crops due to the floods in 2022. Please pray that Yahuah would bless the land, protect it from further flooding and that He will meet their needs. The goal was to implement permaculture practices, methods and design on small-scale farms which will provide sustainable food security, self-sufficiency, and abundance to the communities that we serve. The small-scale farms will help eliminate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. We purchased (4) 25'x25' plots & we leased (4) plots where villagers have grown a variety of vegetables, fruit and wheat. The food grown on the farms is donated to families in the surrounding villages.
Current reported estimates in January 2023 are: as many as 4 million children in Pakistan are still living near contaminated and stagnant flood waters. This is dangerous to their health. "They are frail, hungry, children are fighting a losing battle against severe acute malnutrition, diarrhoea, malaria, dengue fever, typhoid, acute respiratory infections, and painful skin conditions." "Hundreds of thousands of homes and numerous public health facilities, water systems and schools have been destroyed or damaged." Source: http://www.unicef.org/.../devastating-floods-pakistan-2022. Accessed 22 Jan. 2023.
Our villages that were impacted by the Pakistan Floods in 2022 still need clothing and school items for their children. Please join us in prayer that Yahuah would supply their needs. We have only raised $200 out of the $2,100 that is needed. We still need $1,900 to help the children. Thank you!
There was a small amount of money left over from the purchase for the heaters for the leaders in Pakistan. This amount was used to purchase a rug pad to go under the rug in the Worship Center which covers a concrete floor. This Worship Center is where the sewing classes are held. We know the ladies will be very happy to have a rug pad for the concrete floor where they sit to take sewing classes. Thank you for your kindness and compassion for our Pakistani brothers and sisters. Thanks and Praise to Yahuah!
Thank you for the generous donations for a water filter, heaters and blankets for our leaders in Pakistan. The cold season in Pakistan lasts for 2.5 to 3 months, from December to February, with an average daily high temperature below 73°F. The coldest month of the year in Lahore is January, with an average low of 47°F and high of 66°F. This week in Lahore, highs are in the 50's F and lows are in the 30's F. That might not seem very cold to some in North America, however, the people in Pakistani villages live in brick homes, most have dirt floors, some homes do not have windows, most villagers do not have electricity, the dwellings usually have no insulation, they are often single room dwellings that are made of bricks. Many do not have enough winter clothing to keep warm during these cold temperatures. We asked our leaders if they had heat to keep them warm during the cold season, and we found out that most of our leaders did not have heat to keep them warm. "IREA has revealed that more than half of all rural households in Pakistan still lack access to electricity, and are forced to use biomass for energy requirements. A significant portion of the population in Pakistan still lives in rural areas, and the lack of a more diverse array of energy options for rural communities is hampering the fight against poverty and indoor pollution, according to the report." -Tribune.

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
National Human Trafficking Awareness Day is recognized each year on January 11th. Blue Campaign’s largest initiative is #WearBlueDay on January 11th. To raise awareness of human trafficking, wear blue clothing on January 11th, and raise awareness on social media with the #WearBlueDay hashtag. Anyone can participate!
The Department of Labor's annual Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:
Children in Pakistan are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including commercial sexual exploitation and forced domestic work, each sometimes as a result of human trafficking. Children also engage in forced labor in brick kilns and agriculture. The federal government and Balochistan Province have not established a minimum age for work or hazardous work in compliance with international standards. In addition, provincial labor inspectorates do not receive sufficient resources to adequately enforce laws prohibiting child labor, and the federal and provincial governments did not publicly release information on their labor and criminal law enforcement efforts. Further, police corruption, particularly the taking of bribes from suspected perpetrators to ignore child labor crimes and lack of willingness to conduct criminal investigations, hindered Pakistan's ability to address the problem throughout the country.
Many child domestic workers work under conditions of forced labor, including debt bondage, sexual assault, and extreme physical abuse. (2,3,28,29) Poor rural families sometimes sell their children into domestic servitude or other types of work, or pay agents to arrange for such work, often believing their child would work under decent conditions. Children are also kidnapped or sold into organized begging rings, domestic servitude, gangs, and child sex trafficking. (44,45) Reports estimate that around 70 percent of bonded laborers in Pakistan are children. (44,46) Some children work with their families as bonded laborers in the production of bricks. (3,4,24,38,39) Begging ringmasters sometimes maim children to earn more money or force children to steal, and organized criminal groups force children into drug trafficking in Sindh and Balochistan. Research has found that due to the consistent lack of law enforcement efforts against those who exploited street children, including in forced labor and sex trafficking, traffickers operated openly and with impunity. (3,39,44)
Research found that in Sindh, Punjab, and Balochistan, agriculture, brick kiln, fisheries, poultry, mining, construction, domestic labor, and carpet making industries oftentimes failed to follow labor laws with no or little government oversight. Small- and medium-size businesses—particularly those operated in private homes and not subject to inspections, such as shops, garages, and jewelry manufacturers—employed child labor. (47) Afghan, Iranian, and Pakistani children, particularly from Dalbadin and Quetta in Balochistan, are used in drug trafficking operations across the Iranian and Afghan borders with Balochistan, and in parts of Karachi. Children are also used in smuggling operations along the Afghan border with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. (47)
Various factors can compound vulnerability to child labor, including: religious minority and caste status (marginalized minority communities, such as Christian and Hindu Dalits, are likely to be less educated, to lack land or other assets, and to be discriminated against by their surrounding communities, police, and judicial systems); and gender (women, including transgender women, are particularly vulnerable to sex trafficking). (47) Child laborers in Pakistan, particularly boys, are frequently subjected to commercial sexual exploitation at their places of employment, including in factories, workshops, mines, or while scavenging on the streets. (48) They are also sometimes subjected to sexual exploitation in order to obtain or keep their jobs or accommodations. (39,48) Research indicates that in Kasur, a city in Punjab Province where sexual exploitation of children is considered to be among the highest in the country, 90 percent of working children under age 14 have been sexually harassed or exploited. (3,48,49) The practice of bacha bazi, in which boys are forced to provide social and sexual entertainment for older men, is a form of commercial sexual exploitation. Traffickers in Pakistan also promise Pakistani boys admission to Afghan religious schools only to sell them to Afghan security forces for the purpose of sexual exploitation. (39,50)
Children in Pakistan face several barriers to education. Of significant concern is the sexual abuse of children in Pakistan's madrassas—Islamic religious schools that provide free education and meals to Pakistan's poorest children. (49,51,52) There are more than 22,000 registered madrassas in the country, and an estimated 2,000– 3,000 unregistered madrassas; sexual abuse in madrassas significantly hinders the ability of a large number of Pakistani children to attend school and receive an education. (49,51) In addition, non-state armed militant groups—Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, its splinter groups, and ISIL-KP (ISIL Khorasan Province)—forcibly recruited and used children in terrorist activities, including suicide attacks. Further, while research found that the total number of terrorist attacks against schools have continued to decrease since 2009, schools in Pakistan may still be vulnerable to attacks by unknown armed groups, disrupting children's access to education. (3,9,15,39,44,45,53- 58) The government operated a center in Swat, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, to rehabilitate, educate, and reintegrate former child soldiers. (45) Many other children face barriers to accessing education, including high rates of teacher absenteeism, inadequate facilities, lack of transportation, school fees, and corporal punishment, which may deter children from attending school. (3,9,54,57,59,60) Lastly, while children are not legally required to have a birth certificate to enroll in public or private school, research indicates that some private schools may still require children to present their birth certificate to enroll. (3,44) Only 31 percent of births in Pakistan are officially registered. Children without a birth certificate who cannot enroll in school are at much higher risk of becoming victims of exploitative labor conditions. (61)
The government has established institutional mechanisms for the enforcement of laws and regulations (Table 5). However, gaps exist within the operations of enforcement agencies that may hinder adequate enforcement of their child labor laws.
District Vigilance Committees (DVCs) are functioning in all of Punjab Province's 36 districts (conducting 259 meetings during the reporting period), and in 29 districts in Sindh Province (only 9 DVCs convened and none met regularly). (39,44,106) However, research has found that though the Bonded Labor System (Abolition) Act (BLSA) mandated the creation of DVCs in each province to ensure implementation of the BLSA, including reporting and filing cases, the government relied on bonded labor victims to have knowledge of the BLSA, proactively leave their landowners, and file their own cases in the court. Even when bonded laborers did so, the courts either did not act on such claims or handled them administratively, and, as a result, human trafficking victims who came forward often faced retaliation from their exploitative employers. (39) In 2020, the government funded and participated in programs that include the goal of eliminating or preventing child labor (Table 10). However, gaps exist in these social programs, including the adequacy of programs to address the full scope of the problem. The social programs of the federal and provincial governments are insufficient to address the prevalence and scope of Pakistan's child labor problem. Existing programs also do not provide enough protection and rehabilitation services for bonded child laborers and child victims of human trafficking. (39,144) Government initiatives are needed to specifically target child labor in the informal sector, including child labor and forced child labor in domestic work. (120) In addition, there is no significant social program to address sexual abuse of child workers or children attending madrassas in Pakistan.

“January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. Every year since 2010, the US President has dedicated the month to raising awareness about the different forms of human trafficking, also known as modern slavery, and educating people about this crime and how to spot it. In January, the Department of State raises awareness of human trafficking domestically and abroad through U.S. embassies and consulates. We also celebrate the efforts of anti-trafficking organizations, communities of faith, state and local law enforcement, survivor advocates, businesses, and private citizens all around the world to promote this important cause. Everyone can play a part in ending human trafficking.”
Understanding Human Trafficking
FACT SHEET-US Department of State:
“Trafficking in persons,” “human trafficking,” and “modern slavery” are umbrella terms – often used interchangeably – to refer to a crime whereby traffickers exploit and profit at the expense of adults or children by compelling them to perform labor or engage in commercial sex. When a person younger than 18 is used to perform a commercial sex act, it is a crime regardless of whether there is any force, fraud, or coercion.
The United States recognizes two primary forms of trafficking in persons: forced labor and sex trafficking.
Forced labor, also referred to as “labor trafficking,” encompasses the range of activities involved when a person uses force, fraud, or coercion to obtain the labor or services of another person.
The “acts” element of forced labor is met when the trafficker recruits, harbors, transports, provides, or obtains a person for labor or services.
The “means” element of forced labor includes a trafficker’s use of force, fraud, or coercion. The coercive scheme can include threats of force, debt manipulation, withholding of pay, confiscation of identity documents, psychological coercion, reputational harm, manipulation of the use of addictive substances, threats to other people, or other forms of coercion.
The “purpose” element focuses on the perpetrator’s goal to secure labor or services. There is no limit on the location or type of industry. Traffickers can commit this crime in any sector or setting, whether legal or illicit, including but not limited to agricultural fields, factories, restaurants, hotels, massage parlors, retail stores, fishing vessels, mines, private homes, or drug trafficking operations.
All three elements are essential to constitute the crime of forced labor.
There are certain types of forced labor that are frequently distinguished for emphasis or because they are widespread:
“Domestic servitude” is a form of forced labor in which the trafficker requires a victim to perform work in a private residence. Such circumstances create unique vulnerabilities. Domestic workers are often isolated and may work alone in a house. Their employer often controls their access to food, transportation, and housing. What happens in a private residence is hidden from the world – including from law enforcement and labor inspectors – resulting in barriers to victim identification. Foreign domestic workers are particularly vulnerable to abuse due to language and cultural barriers, as well as a lack of community ties. Some perpetrators use these types of conditions as part of their coercive schemes to compel the labor of domestic workers with little risk of detection.
Neither U.S. law nor international law requires that a trafficker or victim move across a border for a human trafficking offense to take place. Trafficking in persons is a crime of exploitation and coercion, and not movement. Traffickers can use schemes that take victims hundreds of miles away from their homes or exploit them in the same neighborhoods where they were born.
“Debt bondage” is focused on human trafficking crimes in which the trafficker’s primary means of coercion is debt manipulation. U.S. law prohibits perpetrators from using debts as part of their scheme, plan, or pattern to compel a person to work or engage in commercial sex. Traffickers target some individuals with an initial debt assumed willingly as a condition of future employment, while in certain countries traffickers tell individuals they “inherited” the debt from relatives. Traffickers can also manipulate debts after the economic relationship begins by withholding earnings or forcing the victim to assume debts for expenses like food, housing, or transportation. They can also manipulate debts a victim owes to other people. When traffickers use debts as a means to compel labor or commercial sex, they have committed a crime.
Forced Child Labor
The term “forced child labor” describes forced labor schemes in which traffickers compel children to work. Traffickers often target children because they are more vulnerable. Although some children may legally engage in certain forms of work, forcing or coercing children to work remains illegal. Forms of slavery or slavery-like practices – including the sale of children, forced or compulsory child labor, and debt bondage and serfdom of children – continue to exist, despite legal prohibitions and widespread condemnation. Some indicators of forced labor of a child include situations in which the child appears to be in the custody of a non-family member and the child’s work financially benefits someone outside the child’s family; or the denial of food, rest, or schooling to a child who is working.
Human Trafficking Indicators:
While not an exhaustive list, these are some key red flags that could alert you to a potential trafficking situation that should be reported:
Living with employer
Poor living conditions
Multiple people in cramped space
Inability to speak to individual alone
Answers appear to be scripted and rehearsed
Employer is holding identity documents
Signs of physical abuse
Submissive or fearful
Unpaid or paid very little
Under 18 and in prostitution
20 Ways You Can Help Fight Human Trafficking:
The Blue Heart Campaign’s goal is to inspire people and mobilize support for action against human trafficking by international organizations, governments, civil society, the private sector and ultimately by individuals. The Blue Heart also aims to enable citizens to show their support for the cause and to increase understanding of the issue of human trafficking in order to spur coordinated actions to fight the crime.

Sewing Classes have resumed after the instructor's maternity leave. Please join us in prayer that Yahuah will bless these ladies with excellent sewing skills, and that they will become self sufficient with the skills they are learning.
The sewing classes have been well received and a Pakistan Leader has requested 16 more machines at $70 per machine for another group of women.
Total: 16 new sewing machines requested: $1,120. Please pray that Yahuah would supply these machines and change the lives of these women and their families.
Winning Pakistan began offering sewing classes to women in July 2022. A ministry Leader's wife is the sewing class teacher. She teaches sewing classes Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and has a bible study class on the Sabbath. Every sewing class begins with prayer, then they read the Word of Yahuah and share truth with the ladies that attend. Next, they learn how to sew with sewing machines that have been donated to these women. The goal is for the women and widows to learn a skill that will enable them to provide an income for their families so they can be independent and not forced into indentured servitude in brickyards. Sewing is a great marketable skill. They will be able to use their sewing skills to make and alter clothing for themselves and their families. They will sell the needlework, apparel, and textile arts pieces at local marketplaces. They are interested in expanding to sell custom-tailored clothing and other needlework items online. Tailors and dressmakers cut, sew, mend, and alter clothing. Typically, tailors work only with menswear, such as suits, jackets, and coats, while dressmakers work with women's clothing, including dresses, blouses, suits, evening wear, wedding and bridesmaids gowns, and sportswear. We are excited that this opportunity for women in Pakistan will empower them to create a real positive impact and change in their families' lives. We thank and praise Yahuah for providing for their needs. We thank you for joining with us in prayer that Yahuah will bless the lives of these women.
Praise Yahuah! Out of 10k-13k people that Winning Pakistan ministers to, only 25 Families from our bible study groups were displaced by floods in Pakistan. They are all safe and staying with family members. We were unable to locate 5 families for a few days, but everyone has been found and they are staying with family, too. Neighboring cities to the villages where we have bible studies have been flooded. Yahuah protected and delivered His people in our bible study groups. Praise and thanks to Yahuah. The flood waters are receding. The 25 families that are displaced had to evacuate their homes due to the flood. They need some basic items like dry clothes and items for their children to go to return to school. We have made a chart and ask that you would join us in lifting their needs up in prayer to Yahuah. Please pray with us that Yahuah would meet all of their basic needs in the aftermath of this devastating flood and the challenging time they are going through.
“Yahuah promised Noah that He would not destroy the Earth again with a flood. The flooding in Pakistan is not caused by Yahuah opening the depths and the skies with water, but it is a result of degraded land, corrupt governments, and a broken people who do not have full understanding of the impact of their decisions over time. We cannot resolve those issues immediately, but we can build up our hurting brothers and sisters in the face of adversity, and start working with good permaculture design to make their land flood proof and drought proof. We can begin to restore the landscape, and restore the people to the knowledge of Yahuah. We can teach the people in Pakistan how to manage their land so that they can be a productive and prosperous people once again with permaculture abundance. Yahuah will give His people strength in their most difficult moments when they have faith and trust in Him.” –Brother Charles
PRAISE REPORT!! While we were sleeping last night (August 28, 2022), flood waters began to invade one of the villages in our leader Sheraz's territory. Shortly after, 24-25 women of the village gathered together in a building and began praying. Not long after, the hand of Yahuah diverted the waters from the village and the flood waters stopped!! The gracious and compassionate Father heard the cries of His people and answered! We give Him all honor and praise and glory for this miracle and for protecting His precious people in Pakistan! -Stacy R.
Please, join us in prayer for the 25 Winning Pakistan families that have lost everything including their houses, clothing, and all their personal belongings. All the followers of the Most High and our Creator, please pray for all the people in Pakistan. Because of the flood, their lives have become very difficult. Children are hungry, they have no food, and they have no clothes to wear. We cry out to Yahuah to have mercy on the people in Pakistan and their land. Please pray that Yahuah will provide them with hygiene items like soap, towels, and needed feminine hygiene products. We thank you, Yahuah for providing each of the Winning Pakistan families with shelter. Please provide the people in Pakistan with dry clothes, dry shelter, please disinfect their water, and allow them to find safe toilets. We know how greatly clean water, sanitation and hygiene affect their health. Please give them good health through this trial. Please clear the flood waters, Yah. Please comfort and help these precious people through this difficult time and bless them with your peace. Please provide them with clean drinking water sources. Please replace the toilets that have washed away. Please keep the snakes at bay so they can answer the call to nature safely. Please do not allow disease to outbreak from contaminated water from the floods. Heal the land in Pakistan and the people, and please provide clean water to every soul in Pakistan. Please provide the hungry with food and the naked with dry clothing. Please provide them with dry shoes. Please send the mosquitos away and prevent an outbreak of malaria. Please provide people in Pakistan with mosquito nets, tents, and meet their basic needs. Let your name and glory be known throughout Pakistan. We praise your mighty name, Yahuah and thank you.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
Trust in יהוה with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; Know Him in all your ways, And He makes all your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Rejoice in יהוה always, again I say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Master is near. Do not worry at all, but in every matter, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to Elohim. And the peace of Elohim, which surpasses all understanding, shall guard your hearts and minds through Messiah יהושע. Philippians 4:4-7
And we know that all matters work together for good to those who love Elohim, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance. And let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught. James 1:2-4
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, nor be discouraged, for יהוה your Elohim is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Elohim, so that He exalts you in due time,
casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you. Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.And the Elohim of all favour, who called you to His everlasting esteem by Messiah יהושע, after you have suffered a while, Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the esteem and the might forever and ever. Amĕn. 1 Peter 5:6-11
I exalt You, my Elohim, O Sovereign; And bless Your Name forever and ever. All day long I bless You, And praise Your Name forever and ever. Great is יהוה, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable. Generation after generation praise Your works, And they declare Your mighty acts. I declare the esteemed splendour of Your excellency, And the matters of Your wondrous works. And they speak of the might of Your awesome acts, And I recount Your greatness. They send forth the remembrance of Your great goodness, And they sing of Your righteousness. יהוה shows favour and is compassionate, Patient and great in kindness.
יהוה is good to all, And He has compassion on all His works. All Your works give thanks to You, O יהוה, And Your kind ones bless You. They speak of the esteem of Your reign, And talk of Your might, To make known to the sons of men His mighty acts, And the esteemed splendour of His reign. Your reign is an everlasting reign, And Your rule is throughout all generations. יהוה is supporting all who are falling, And raising up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to You expectantly, And You are giving them their food in its season, Opening Your hand and satisfying The desire of all that live. יהוה is righteous in all His ways, And kind in all His works. יהוה is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He does the desire of those who fear Him; And He hears their cry and saves them. Psalm 145:1-19
I bless יהוה at all times; His praise is continually in my mouth. My being makes its boast in יהוה; Let the humble hear and be glad. Oh, make יהוה great with me, And let us exalt His Name together. I sought יהוה, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were lightened, And their faces were not ashamed. This poor one cried out and יהוה heard him, And saved him out of all his distresses. The messenger of יהוה encamps all around those who fear Him, And rescues them. Oh, taste and see that יהוה is good; Blessed is the man that takes refuge in Him! Fear יהוה, you His set-apart ones, For there is no lack to them who fear Him! Young lions have lacked and been hungry; But those who seek יהוה lack not any good matter. Come, you children, listen to me; Let me teach you the fear of יהוה.
Who is the man who desires life, Who loves many days, in order to see good? Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good; Seek peace, and pursue it. The eyes of יהוה are on the righteous, And His ears unto their cry. The face of יהוה is against evil-doers, To cut off their remembrance from the earth. The righteous cried out, and יהוה heard, And delivered them out of all their distresses. יהוה is near to the broken-hearted, And saves those whose spirit is crushed. Many are the evils of the righteousa, But יהוה delivers him out of them all. He is guarding all his bones; Not one of them is broken. Evil does slay the wrong, And those who hate the righteous are guilty. יהוה redeems the lives of His servants, And none of those taking refuge in Him are guilty.

Food along with clean water continue to be the most dire needs of the Pakistani people that we support. These are things we typically take for granted in the US. What will happen when we begin to experience these needs? Will we have blessings stored up by helping others who have not? Of course, we do nothing so that we can receive, but we serve an Elohim (Yahuah) who causes us to reap what we sow. He is faithful and just, and He longs that we serve one another that He may continue to bless us. Please consider sharing your blessings with those in need!
Our resources for helping Pakistan really are endless! There are so many ways to support helping the people of Pakistan that don't involve money. While money is of great help, these other ways are just as important! We appreciate those who offer their support!
