Islamabad Pakistan

Recently I have come into acquaintance with people of God in Islamabad, Pakistan. From a western perspective through our media, we see and hear all things of ill will in this country. I attest now, God is alive in Pakistan and is fortifying hearts of men who are furthering His kingdom.

There is a 96% Muslim population in Islamabad [a]  with another 4% who are Christian. It is a beautiful 4% and our prayers and donations will help the evangelical churches grow there. Besides standard needs, Bibles in the indigenous Urdu language are needed. It is best to donate money directly to gnem.org  to let local churches purchase what they need.

The head of the gnem or “Good News Evangelism Ministries” is Masih Javed. He is the founder and director. His son, Simon Javed, works with him in this evangelical effort of God’s work.

I have spoken and interviewed Simon and he has graciously answered a few questions giving insight into his life and life in Christ.

The more personal we become with this world, the more compassion drawn from the love of Jesus  we avail to people we meet. Please read and learn a little about Simon Javed. Islamabad, Pakistan.
