Pakistan Bible distribution moves forward

By August 12, 2011

Pakistan (MNN) — Persecution is frequent for Christians trying to live peacefully in the 95% Muslim nation of Pakistan. Believers in Christ practice their faith cautiously, trying to remain strong amid difficult circumstances.

Unfortunately, God's Word–an unfailing source of strength–is difficult to access in Pakistan. Few Pakistani believers own their own copy of the Scriptures.

A lack of Scriptures not only makes persecution more difficult to deal with, but it makes growth even harder for new Christians just beginning in their faith. However, despite severe persecution in Pakistan–it is #11 out of all nations on the World Watch List for persecution, people are turning to Christ in droves.

"In 2010, more than 100,000 people (in Pakistan) accepted Christ and were baptized," notes Mawii Pudaite with Bibles for the World.

As the church continues to boom, so does the need for Scriptures. Bibles for the World is responding.

The ministry has been in touch with one reputable pastor in particular who is in high need of Bibles, says Pudaite. "Our pastor friend has sent us e-mails and telephoned us with urgent requests for Bibles, New Testaments and Gospels."

Bibles for the World is helping by first sending out thousands of copies of the Gospel of John.

"We will print the Gospel of John with the title, 'The Book of Hope and Light,'" says Pudaite. "We will also provide new Testaments and Bibles. Our prayerful goal is to print 150,000 copies of the Gospel of John for the first run."

The cost to print and distribute one copy of the Gospel of John in Urdu is just $0.25, and each copy will reach one family. Essentially, with $25, 100 families will be reached with the message of Christ.

"It will produce spiritual fruit and changed lives," notes Pudaite. "This is how Pakistan will be changed for good."

Many who read the Scriptures will be Christians, and many will be hearing the Good News for the first time. Only God knows the full scope of all that these Scriptures will do, but Pudaite reminds us that God promises His Word "will not return to Him void."

Because Pakistan is a high security risk area, Bibles for the World does not have a direct link to the Pakistan Bible project on their Web site. Instead, to get involved, contact Bibles for the World here, or make a note with your contribution here.

    Good Afternoon from Rochester, NY. May God bless you all for your amazing work and outreach. I am writing to you as I have a very wonderful brother in christ who is in desperate need for urdo and punjabi bibles. His Shafiq Bhatti and is a minister who works for, ( The way of eternity ministries) and, needs bibles to distribute in the poorest of villages that are thursting for the word of God. Where I am from, it is very hard to get these bibles and, I cannot afford to buy them for him myself as I am on Social Security so, funds are very limited. God has touched my heart to try and get this wonderful christian man and minister the bibles he needs in someway. Please, please if there is anything that you could do to help this minister please let me know.

    Thank you again for all your organization does.
    May God bless you, protect you and provide for all of your needs.

    Sincerely,
    Teresa Torres

  • I am getting alot of requests from pakistsni Christians in Lahiore for Bibles…..mostly pastors of small churches and Make a wish foundation…sending thru western union or paypsl address…are these trustworthy?

  • Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus!

    I am Krista Abacan, a staff in a mission organization in the Philippines. I humbly come to make a request for free Bibles for our Pakistani brothers and sisters in Thailand this October 2017. My Ministry is Turning Point International, Inc., which is 26 years operating here in the Philippines. We are conducting monthly discipleship training programs for pastors and church workers. For the past 5 years (since 2011), we are going to Thailand for missions first to Filipinos and for the third year, to the Pakistanis since they are in Thailand because of too much persecution from Pakistan. This October 23-25, 2017, we will conduct a free training for them and accommodate them in Avana Bangkok Hotel. I would like to ask for free Bibles, about 150 Pakistan Bibles for them. We all know how much important the Word of God is and if we could just produce here in the Philippines, we will do it but there is no Pakistan Bible here. So if you would be pleased to send us, I believe that the Lord will do something greater and more amazing things to your organization as much as He will do also for our Pakistani brothers and sisters. Thank you so much. Please give me reply soon. I can give you the address where to send it. Thank you again
