CHILD SPONSORSHIP FOR MY FATHER’S HOUSE IN PAKISTAN!
“I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held…” Rev. 6:9
THE CHILDREN AT MY FATHER’S HOUSE
How many times have we dreamed of this day and it is now here. We have over 120 applicants, but both administrations here in the US and in Pakistan decided to move day by day and pick the children the Lord wants us to take in. This is what we are doing in the process, we learn what these children need and give a quality life experience for these children. Some of them need recovery, they have lived in hiding since the killing of a parent or parents. Some are in hiding with a relative who can’t afford to keep them. The stories would make any person weep. Such as little Tawish, our newest boy. When he was only two years old, his parents went out, never to return again. They lived in a city with very few Christians. The children below have gone through great pain and suffering. From their parents being killed in suicide bombings to a drunken group who gang-raped a Christian mother and killed her the same night.
THEY NEED LOVING PARENTS TO ADOPT THEM!
You can be one of them. We will send pictures to you in the mail and you can correspond to them through us. E-mail would be best, but you can also write and we will scan it and send it to them.
Remember, some of them are just learning to write. Due to poverty, most have not gone to school. The cost is $36 a month. This is field costs. We have added nothing. Full support of $50 will cover the cost of the child, plus overhead to keep them. Again this is actual field cost. We are believing for general gifts to come in to cover additional costs.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
We will send you a profile in the mail of your child. You can call us and Teresa will put you on a monthly giving that you can stop any time with just a call or email. One person can support a child for the entire $50 or 2 or more can support a child for smaller amounts.
You can ask questions of your sponsored child such as:
What are you learning at My Father’s House?
Do you have new friends?
What kind of food do you like?
What colors do you like?
What is it like living at My Father’s House?
Other things you can do?
- You can buy a new suit of clothes
- You can help with books
- You can ask us and we will ask them. (Maybe some medical care is needed). What ever level you want to help you can, but the monthly support is the current greatest need.
Once we get your questions, you can expect a short turnaround for a response.
Below are profiles of the children that are now at My Father’s House. Some are already sponsored, but many more children are coming in weekly.
$36 a month will cover the expenses for the child. $50 will cover the expenses for the child and help support the teachers.
WHAT IF I WANT TO HELP A CHILD THAT’S ALREADY SPONSORED?
This is welcome! If someone touches your heart and they are already sponsored, you can become their prayer covering or help with special needs. There will always be special needs that arise just like any other child. We are keeping extensive files on all children. Just tag it SPECIAL NEEDS if the child you are drawn to is already sponsored.
ANGEL – 8 YEARS OLD – ALREADY SPONSORED
Angel’s father was an electrician. He was working in the house of a Muslim man, but they did not pay him. Shahzad kept asking for his hard earned money, but the Muslim man would not pay him. One evening the Muslim man called him and most people say he was drunk that evening. He called Shahzad to come and collect his money. When Shahzad got there the Muslim man and his workers started beating and torturing Shahzad. They even gave him an electric shock. He died on the spot and later the Muslim man claimed that Shahzad died while working. Shahzad’s wife registered a complaint against the Muslim man, but they started threatening her as well and they forced her to take the complaint back. Shahzad Masih was the only one working and helping his family.
Now after his death, his family and children were suffering and starving. Praise God we now have Angel in My Father’s House.
CAROL – 6 YEARS OLD
Carol is Angel’s younger sister.
ELIZABETH – 9 YEARS OLD – ALREADY SPONSORED
Elizabeth’s father was in Lahore on Sunday when he and two of his sons were in church. On March 15, 2015 two Taliban suicide bombers attacked the church in Lahore City and many people died including Elizabeth’s father and her two brothers. From there the suffering of this little girl and her mother started. Her mother is a serious patient of asthma and she works as a maid in the house of a Muslim man. They give her only 3000 pkr, which is not even $25 per month. She could not even buy her asthma medicine. On the day she visited My Father’s House, she was crying a lot because Elizabeth is the only child she has left. She is now in My Father’s House and going to school!
HABIL – 6 YEARS OLD – ALREADY SPONSORED
Habil’s mother used to work in a Muslim man’s house as a maid. During one of their wedding events, they all were drunk and gang-raped her. After raping her, they killed her and gave the excuse that she slipped from stairs. They were politically strong and they didn’t even let the doctor do a post mortem.
This little boy is in My Father’s House now and has started going to school.
SHUMAIL – 9 YEARS OLD
Shumail lost his parents in a suspicious car “accident” that took place as they were on the way to the police station to report the mother’s rape by the Muslim man for whom she and her husband worked.
Shumail also has a six-year-old sister. They are now both at My Father’s House after being orphaned with no place to go.
SEHRISH – 8 YEARS OLD
Sehrish is the daughter of Shera Masih. Shera and his family were 3rd generation slaves and used to make bricks for a Muslim man. Shera was had tuberculosis, liver and kidney diseases. The day we set him free, his HB was only 4.7 and normally it should be at least 13, so he could have died in a day or two but God is a Good God!
God set him and his family free and by the Grace of God, we were able to help him with the medical treatment as well. He stayed in the hospital for 3 weeks and different tests were performed. 8 bags of blood were donated by our team members to save his life. Praise God He survived and is still alive. Sehrish and her sister, Alisha, were ex-slaves, but praise God now they are now in My Father’s House.
ALISHA – 7 YEARS OLD – ALREADY SPONSORED
Alisha is the younger sister of Sehrish.
NAME: TAWISH – 6 YEARS
Tawish came from a faraway place in another state of Pakistan where there are very few Christians. One day when he was only 2 ½, his parents left and never returned. No one knows what happened to them. They think they were either kidnapped or killed. Since that time, he was living with his aunt, but she has four children of her own and as a maid doesn’t make enough to support another child. He is now living at My Father’s House and is very happy. He had never been to school; but now he can go to school, eat, play, study and learn about God and prayer.
NOUMAN – 9 YEARS OLD
Nouman’s father died of natural causes. He died with a heart attack about 5 years ago. Since then Nouman’s mother worked as a maid in Muslim family. She leaves for work at 5 am and walks about 5 km to where she works. They have a very small room where they rent to live and are living a very miserable life. But Praise God, Nouman and his brother, Ehtsham, are now living at My Father’s House.
EHTSHAM – 8 YEARS OLD
Ehtsham is Nouman’s younger brother.
SHAMA SHAMOUN – 17 YEARS OLD
Shama is another case of how Christians are being treated in Pakistan. Shama’s father was in the army and he was earning $170 per month and they had their own house too. Her father was about to retire in a couple of months but there were some Muslims who accused him of blasphemy, so he was arrested. Shama’s family sold their house and used all the money they had to fight her father’s case in court. However, once you are arrested in a blasphemy case, then it is very difficult to survive. So last year on January 23, 2018 her father was hanged till death in this false blasphemy case. After being accused in a blasphemy case the army did not pay him his salary, nor the pension, nor did they give any retirement monies as well.
Shama’s mother broke her leg in a road accident. Shama used to go school, but they lost their all savings and home. They were living in someone’s house. Shama and her sister, Sana, stopped going school because the mother could not afford their education or even living expenses.

Sana is Shama’s younger sister.
WISHAL – 10 YEARS OLD
