And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.
…and He finds places we have long forgotten or will never seek.
God searches the places of this world for the hearts of those willing to die unto themselves and help build strongholds of Jesus with steadfast focus on God. As they plant seeds, the Lord grows to fruition. This is an interview with a Pastor in Faisalabad, Pakistan where Christians are a small minority.
This is our conversation that took place over email. The zeal for Christ in Yousaf and in Pakistan, in general, is inspiring. It is encouraging and it makes the world a little smaller as the Body of Christ stands together across oceans and many continents. We rejoice in the Lord for all He does.
