Last year I had the chance to meet a 22 year old pastor from Pakistan named Adeel. Strangely enough we met in Sierra Leone through the Global Leadership Institute. He was there to receive 2 weeks of ministry training. Since then we’ve stayed in touch through email, Facebook, and Skype.
The church he pastors is now 600, and has a heart to reach all of Pakistan for Christ. He shared with me their need for a van, what he called a “Gospel Van.” I felt like this was a God given opportunity for our church to make a global impact. So we shared the vision and in two weeks we had the money to purchase an 8 passenger van to help Adeel and Harvest Time Church touch their local community and surrounding villages. Thanks to all who gave.
Below is the email I just received from Pastor Adeel. Please keep in mind his main language is Urdu.
Greetings & Blessing
