Mission Cry shares Bibles near Osama bin Laden’s compound

By May 18, 2021

Pakistan (MNN) — We’ve been reporting on Mission Cry’s plan to send Bibles and the Gospel to Abbottabad, Pakistan. Read more here.

Jason Woolford felt led to send scriptures to 500 houses surrounding the site of Osama Bin Laden’s old compound where he was killed in 2011. Woolford says, “So we began to pray and plan and reached out to our Pakistan missionary team there. And I said, ‘Listen, I need you to pray, this is what I feel like you to do. Go down to Osama bin Laden’s compound, and give the Word of God there, 2000 Bibles in total.’ He came back a couple of days later said, ‘We’re in.’”

Mission completed

Woolford says 100 Muslims began following Christ after receiving Bibles from Mission Cry partners. Woolford says, “For those that are listening, that did pray, I want to thank you. Because we know that it’s war, we were warring on behalf of this team.”

The Christians interacted with all people in the area, from older women to young boys, handing out Bibles and praying. “The military came into the compound and told them that they needed to stop praying, as they were holding hands and praying. They stopped, but they continued to pray, walked that entire property, and the military left them alone.”

Pray for these new believers in Abbottabad. They live in a country very unfriendly to Christians and other religious minorities. Ask God to transform this area where violence and fear once ruled. Pray it would become a place of peace and wholeness.
