In this post, we would first like to share our gratitude to those who have come alongside us in prayer and support for our financial goals for the month of March. This month is different from others, because we are not only continuing with our ongoing support that provides food and widow/children support, but we are also supporting the celebration of Passover/Unleavened Bread in Pakistan for near 6,000 believers, many of whom are either brand new or are seeking the truth of the Father! This month is so impactful!
Below is a summary of the needs for March that are urgent and ongoing. We have now received over half of the full $13,000 needed for this month, and we are praying for Father's continued provision so that nothing is left out (see details below)! As always, any donation amount and any prayer is helpful in assisting us to reach this goal. And as a reminder, every penny received by this ministry is directed to Pakistan as reflected in the summary below.
If you are moved to give to this wonderful and impactful cause, please visit our Donate page!
Through all the blessings of Yahuah poured out through the support and prayers of the saints, our brothers and sisters in Pakistan are now working to complete their third worship center!
These worship centers provide shelter and warmth for the worshippers as they gather on sabbath, for fellowship, and to observe the appointed feast days. These facilities will also be used for schooling for the children as well as a gathering place for meetings and other needs.
The pictures and video below show the current progress on the third worship center now going up in the village of one of our interpreter/teachers. We give all thanks and praise to our Father Yahuah for hearing the cries and requests of His people as they seek Kingdom things!
Enjoy this short 1.5-minute video that also displays the progress of this latest house of Yahuah! (Also, please be sure to like and share this video!!)
Two of our regular and ongoing needs are food packs and coats and shoes. Below we share pictures of the most recent distribution of both, as well as smiles and an abundance of thank you's from the recipients!
To the Pakistani people... while you feel that we bless you, we want you to know that your faith, your endurance, your joy, and your gratitude blesses us so very much!!
We have recently begun supporting the effort of teaching school classes for the children in the villages of Pakistan with which we are in partnership! As of now, we have three classes started and a fourth one to start soon!
The children will be learning all basic subjects as well as bible study and following the way of Yahusha. In our support of these classes, we will help to provide books and teaching supplies and are also planning to use our future worship centers (currently being planned) to house these classes during the week.
New doors continue to swing wide open for the Pakistani people as Yahuah takes care of every detail! We are grateful to be a part of this beautiful story!!
In this update, we would like to give you a smorgasbord of giving and receiving! Our ministry gives to the Pakistani people in many general areas such as food, clothing/coats/shoes, worship centers, animals (for food and milk), land (for gardening), living essentials, bibles, and many other important necessities.
Below enjoy a variety of pictures of our most recent giving and receiving! This is only possible by the hand of Yahuah and the obedience of His people in fulfilling His word!
I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Messiah Yahusha, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Praise Yahuah!! Since the Winning Pakistan ministry began just a little over a year ago, we have watched our heavenly Father add each of His own hand-picked leaders, teachers, and supporters... all with specialized, unique talents to support the exact vision given to the founder, Kevin Moses.
With this post, we would like to focus on what our Master Gardner, David K., and Pakistan leader Jennifer M., have now accomplished! Through prayer, hard work, determination, and endurance, parched dry land has now been turned into flourishing gardens... gardens which will sustain and provide for the people on an ongoing basis!
Please take a look at the video below that supports and details this successful endeavor! We are full of joy to see the self-sufficiency of the people, which would not be possible without Yahuah's powerful hand !
As so many of the more fortunate are gearing up to lavish gifts and goodies upon their loved ones, many others are simply trying to survive... including trying to stay warm in freezing temperatures. Our prayers and desires are to bless the least of these now with the necessities for warmth and health!
The people in need in the villages of Pakistan range from babies to the elderly; and then there are those who have no village and live on the streets -- of which many are young children. We have shared pictures of these children in previous posts with more included below (these are real pictures taken by our leaders).
While it is our dream to secure an orphanage and help these children, we realize this can be complicated and time-consuming. In the meantime, we can work with our brothers and sisters in Pakistan to get these children blankets, pillows, warm clothes, and shoes... as well as a way to get a hot meal. This alone will make life on the street more bearable during these cold months.
Please help us help them. If you have all you need, and even an abundance, please consider blessing them through this ministry. Every cent that we receive goes directly to purchase the exact items needed! And we are always sure to post the joy of those in need receiving these items -- and to glorify our Father in Heaven, Yahuah, in the name of His Son Yahusha, for all He is doing for them.
Remember, as their hands reach out to receive what we give to them, Yahusha stands in the midst with His hands out as well. We bless and please Him dearly each time we bless His little ones. If you are moved to help, please go to our Donate page. And we thank you deeply from our hearts!
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.
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!!
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!
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.
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!
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!!
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!!
If you are moved to help in any way, please visit our Donate page! Even a little makes a huge difference!
We are continually receiving updates of wonderful things happening in Pakistan, including how people are giving their lives to Yahusha, prayers for healing are being answered, and how desperate needs are being met. However, some of the challenges in Pakistan are ongoing and require our continued prayer and assistance.
While this ministry does not enjoy making frequent requests for resources, we feel it necessary to share the truth of what our brothers and sisters face in Pakistan -- and not just Pakistan, but in many places all over the world. They need us right now, and we want to be there for them!
Because some of the challenges are ongoing, particularly with food and water, we are attempting to address the root of these issues and work out long-term solutions where the people can sustain meeting their own needs. This is also their desire, just as it would be ours if we were to be in the same situation.
With that, we would like to share some pictures we received this week of the living conditions that need improvement. We would also like to share that one of our goals for a long-term solution is the leasing of land for growing food. The cost per acre for one year is $600, and the need is four acres. This would provide two harvests of food, money from selling some of the food to go towards the next year's lease, and also work for the women and children, which will get them out of the brickyards!! What a world of difference this would make! One of our Winning Pakistan leaders in the US is a master gardener, and he is already sharing his knowledge with the people! Once the land is leased, he will continue to work with them to teach them how to successfully grow their own food!
This is once again the hand of Yahuah at work, and we give Him all the praise!
Also, the following is an update on our overall current needs (updated from previous post on 10/21/21):
** Water systems for 14 villages: $4,500 ($2,000 received!)
** Coats, shoes, socks for 429 people: $6,400 ($600 rec'd)
**Food packs (ongoing): $2,500/month
**Worship center: $300 ($1,700 rec'd!)
** Bibles (ongoing distribution): $1,500
** Widow packs - 104 widows: $2,600
** Farmland for planting: $600 per acre to lease for one year (4 acres are needed for total of $2,400)
Giving to the poor is mentioned over and over and in the Word as one of the primary outcomes of our salvation, and it is so important and precious to the heart of our King! If you ever ask Him, "Yahusha, what can I do for you?" This would be one of the first things He would say, just as He did so many times in His Word! And how does He bless you for this? With the absolute joy of knowing you have pleased Him as well as given from your blessings to the "least of these" who represent Him!
** Water systems - 14 villages: $5,000 ($1,500 rec'd)
**Coats, shoes, socks - 429 people: $6,800 ($200 rec'd)
** Worship center: $1,000 ($1,000 rec'd)
** Food packs (ongoing): $2,500/month
** Widow packs - 104 widows: $2,600
** Bibles (ongoing distribution): $1,500
