At the end of last week we received an URGENT request for prayer from Pakistan… local police in the city where our EVANGELISM CONFERENCE FOR YOUNG ADULTS was to take place (May 12-13) ordered Pastor Hamid, our AsiaLink Director, to POSTPONE the conference due to SECURITY CONCERNS.
Within the last several years Al-Qaeda has become active in this central city in Pakistan. Just a year ago this month the leader of Al-Qaeda for Pakistan was killed along with a number of other terrorists in this city. Among those killed were two suicide bombers whose objective was to attack a local university.
This delay has come as a real blow to our team and to the many who had travelled to the city to attend the conference. Police have now ordered our AsiaLink leadership to postpone the conference till June 23-24.
The threat of terrorism from Islamic extremists or from Islamic pressure is a constant… yet, our AsiaLink team press on with the ministry God has placed before them.
PRAY that security concerns in this major Muslim city will diminish and that the conference will be able to take place in June.
PRAY for the many disappointed people who travelled to attend that they will be able to rearrange their schedules to attend in June.
PRAY that God would use this upcoming conference to touch and motivate the several hundreds young adults who will attend.
You can still be a part of this special conference by investing in ministry that is challenging young adults living in a Muslim country that Christ is more than enough to live and die for!
The purpose of this conference is to teach Pakistani Christian young adults how to do evangelism in a safe manner in this Muslim country. We are expecting several hundred young adults to attend. The theme for the conference is Evangelism in The Here and Now.
We still need your help to sponsor this conference to make it as accessible for those who financially can’t attend.
For just $12 you can sponsor a young adult. This minimal amount provides their meals, accommodation and the incredible training they will receive.
Why sponsor one when you can sponsor 5 or 10!
This is a life-changing opportunity for you to touch the Muslim world with the incredible love of Christ!
Yours for Asia’s ,
Rev. Dale R. Hiscock
PS: Let this be our motivation in praying and supporting this ministry event… by reminding ourselves that “Life is not about winning the race. Life is about finishing the race and how many people we can all help finish the race.” Heb 12: 1
