There are two ministries that I would like to introduce to our readers this week: The Lehore Bible Institute; and Compassion Ministries. The reasons I have for sharing these ministries with you are many, but I will narrow them to just a few.
First and foremost, I am sharing this with you because the Lord has laid this upon my heart and it is my honor and privilege to do so.
Secondly, I hope to encourage you in the work of the LORD. As we peruse the website links and watch the video that I have posted, we will be able to see the fruit of these ministries through the lives of those who have so sacrificially laid them down for others. It is miraculous, amazing, inspiring and well worth sharing. Also just seeing the joy of the Lord on the faces of those who are receiving salvation and the love of Jesus Christ not only encourages us, but is a wonderful look at the power of God to change lives.
Third, I would ask that you pray for all of your brothers and sisters serving and living in Pakistan. As you know, Pakistan is a Muslim country and home to Islamic Terrorist groups, such as the Taliban. Christian persecution is common and widespread. Those who are spreading the Gospel message are literally risking there lives and the lives of their family members. THEY NEED OUR PRAYER AND SUPPORT.
Last, but not least, I have known Pastor Amrit and his wife Mercy Din for over 25 years. They are faithful believers and ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. No matter what times we are living in, whether really good or really difficult, I have never seen them flinch in their complete assurance in the Great Faithfulness of God our Father. I still hear Pastor Amrit in the back of my mind (with a strong Pakistani accent) saying, “We serve a Great and Faithful God!” And he is absolutely right!
If you would like to take a look at these ministries, the following links will provide you with more information
The Lehore Bible Institute
Lahore Bible Institute
Please pray for the people who have lost their homes and loved ones. If the Lord leads you to help, please send special help for persecuted Christians.
Because of the economic situation our utility bills have gone way up. Our security people want to have more money, also. Please pray.
The president of our Board of Directors, Mr. Gordon Morris, needs prayers for his health. He has served this board for forty some years.
Please pray that the LORD may open many hearts in Pakistan for the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an urgent necessity to reach out for Christ Jesus our Lord now.

Compassion Ministries (extension of Lahore Bible Institute)
Compassion Ministries has a new location on Facebook. If you have a Facebook account, the following link will provide you with more information.
Compassion Ministries is a non-profit organization with a mission in serving Christian women and children Pakistan. It is an extension of the Lehore Bible Institute. This mission began in an effort to end child labor and illiteracy, and open the door to education and only the memory of poverty.
Pakistan is a poverty stricken nation which has forced uneducated women into jobs with very low compensation as well as their children into child labor. Through Compassion Ministries, women have been taught new skills in an effort to bring in more financial support for their families making it possible for their children to have an education instead of having to work.
Currently, these children have a two room school house that was built last year through supporters of Compassion Ministries. This space, however, is very limited for the age groups and there remains a need for more classrooms, especially this time of year when classes are being held outside in the bitter cold. These children are also in need of educational supplies such as writing utensils, books, chalkboards etc. Compassion Ministries exists to meet all these needs.
Compassion Ministries also provides aid to women and children in need of critical heathcare secondary to life threatening diseases. Supporters of Compassion Ministries have made it possible to supply antibiotics, hepatitis treatments, and surgeries to individuals and have saved their lives as a result. We would like to thank all who have supported Compassion Ministries through prayer and donations. You have made a dramatic difference in the lives and future of the women and children at Lahore Bible Institute.
In this season of giving, please keep the needs of these women and children in your prayers. If you feel led to donate towards their needs you can do so by making checks out to "Compassion Ministries" and mailing to:
P.O. Box 172
Fayetteville, NY 13066
For more information, please contact: Compassion Ministries or send and email to
Any amount large or small is a huge blessing to these individuals. Thank you.
