Prayer Calendar: October - Pakistan

As we continue with our 2016 Prayer Calendar, we are praying for Pakistan in October. 

Pakistan is situated in the 10/40 window and is home is 393 people groups, with 383 remaining unreached by the gospel. The majority of the population in Pakistan are Muslims.

In Praise of Prayer Groups

J.O. Fraser, missionary to China with OMF in the early part of the 20th century*, learnt much about prayer while reaching out to the Lisu people, coming to realize the vital part that the prayers of those back in the UK had to play in seeing fruit in his labours.

Following Jesus in Iraq

Brother Raeed is how you might picture a monk. His gestures are calm, and silence seems to be his natural state. 15 years ago, he chose a life dedicated to prayer in a small monastery community in Iraq – Himself, four other monks and Jesus – that was it.

Cross Cultural Mission in Great Britain & Ireland

GETTING INVOLVED IN CROSS-CULTURAL CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY WORK NO LONGER MEANS THAT YOU NEED TO GO OVERSEAS. THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO REACH OUT TO IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIES IN GREAT BRITAIN & IRELAND WITH WORDS AND ACTIONS OF GRACE AND TRUTH. 

We have 36 full time and 21 associate workers established in Great Britain & Ireland, working in cities like Birmingham, London, Manchester and Sheffield. The team models ways to enable Asian and Arabised people to hear, understand and respond to the gospel, in culturally appropriate ways.

Cross cultural mission in the UK

CHURCHES

Acts 1:8 tells us that mission goes from here to everywhere. We believe that most churches are engaged in local mission but that many need a little help when it comes to cross-cultural or overseas mission. We would like to help. We have lots to offer churches wherever you are up to in your mission journey. Book a 'serve' meeting with one of our team.

Why Get Involved?

IF THE WORLD WAS 100 PEOPLE:
20 WOULD LIVE IN A SLUM
42 WOULD NEVER HEAR ABOUT JESUS
49 WOULD LIVE ON LESS THAN £1.50 A DAY

The Unreached

Preaching good news to the poor (Luke 4:18a)

42% of the world's population have no access to the gospel and unless something changes will live and die without ever hearing the Good News about what Jesus did for them. And 81% of these live in Asia and the Arab World. We believe that everyone deserves to know and experience Jesus' love.

Poverty

Freedom for the prisoners (Luke 4:18b)

Poverty affects people in many ways and can be measured by finances, education, liberty, relationships and hope. Families can be trapped for generations, feeling hopeless and out of control. We work to bring freedom and  release for the poor and oppressed.

Healing

Recovery of sight for the blind (Luke 4:18c)

Often hidden away, the sheer volume of people who are sick, disabled or injured is not immediately apparent when visiting developing countries. Shame and fear surround disabilities and treatable conditions remain uncared for. 

There are so many reasons why we are passionate about serving God and the people of Asia and the Arab world in mission

 

Interserve is one of many players in God’s mission to bring the good news about Jesus to the nations. The needs are great and there is much to do. What part can you play in this vital work?
