Not everything in ministry is exciting. In fact, some things are hard and dangerous. The people who live in the Cholistan Desert often live in fear from their Muslim overloads. This video link, Marwa’s Story, tells about an Indian family who suffered terribly until their harrowing escape. It was made by a secular organization.
But let me tell you about Pastor Solomon whom I have come to know. He and his wife and four children live in a one-room hut. A few years ago their oldest son became ill and Solomon borrowed money from his Muslim landlord for medical care. His son died.
Compounding the grief was his debt to his landlord. His pay is so small that he will never be able to repay his debt. He will be a slave to his Muslim landlord for the rest of his life. He often does not have enough food for his family and other poor Christians in the village try to help. Yet, he is growing in the Lord and is witnessing to others. Yesterday he stood and testified that he recently told a story about Jesus to two other people. This was courageous of him.
Solomon wants to continue growing and do more, but he is tied to his land for which he does not earn enough even for food. But we can do something about this. We are asking you to join us to raise the money to pay off his debt. Then, he can seek other employment for better pay and be freer for ministry. How much do we need to free Solomon from slavery? We need $3800. Please pray about joining us to free Pastor Solomon from his debt.
Click on this link, give your gift to WGS, and earmark it for Pastor Solomon. 100% of the proceeds will go toward this. If more is collected, we will devote it to providing for him and other pastors ($10 a day!) to proclaim Christ in their villages. And, we will always be on the lookout for more slaves to free.
Thank you for your prayers and consideration.
