THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED SET THESE FAMILIES FREE FROM PRISON!
You not only set them FREE, but put them on a new course of life of blessing. All families now have new homes. They lived in a 12 x 12 room or smaller in prison. All heads of families have been given a vocational trade for life. All the children have been put in school for the very first time and food has been provided for 3 months.
Next, the mothers of each family or the eldest daughters will attend a Teresa Sewing Center and learn to become a seamstress. When they graduate we buy them a sewing machine and kit that will last a lifetime. They all tithe to get the centers going. The Teresa Sewing Centers provide thousands of garments for the prisoners.
So your gift will keep on giving!
From time to time come back to this page for updates on all the vocations trades and graduates from the Teresa Sewing Centers. We will try to let you know.
The late Iqbal Masih, the father of this family, was the first one who became trapped in slavery. He borrowed money for his wife’s medical treatment and was not able to pay it back. They have been in slavery before the separation of India and Pakistan. The estimated time has been around 78 years. They were second and third generation slaves.
Saleem’s four daughters are young and he said there are times when he gets worried because the Muslim brick kiln owners rape young Christian slave girls and force them to convert to Islam.
Please pray for these precious children. The families were so happy. They were continually smiling!
