If you are part of the GRM team, you know what I’m talking about and you are rejoicing with us!
If you are new to the team, we started a project called “MY FATHER’S HOUSE.” This is a 60 room facility in Pakistan for the children of Christian martyrs. Children left in brick maker prisons, living as orphans with other families and children who are in hiding outside of prison. These children have stood up for their faith in Jesus Christ, even though it cost them dearly.
Our native director carried a vision for this center for many years. However, MY burden started with the gang raping of a little 8-year-old girl named Sara (actual name withheld.)
One of the ways Christian girls are pressured to convert to Islam is through the vehicle of terrorizing and inflicting fear. Little Sara was raped and nearly died as a result. It was brutal! We got the news and immediately took her entire family and placed them in hiding and ministered to them. I saw her when she was recovering, laying in bed in deep depression. She will never marry now. I could not refrain from weeping over her situation.
I could not get over it, then My Father’s House was born in my heart. Since then, I dreamed of the day where these children could go to a place of escape, rest, and learning.
THE SPIRIT OF SHADRACH, MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO LIVES ON.
Several events with children made the deepest impression on my heart. First, there was Sara. Then another young girl forced to make bricks every day with a large tumor on her hand. Then Sumble, whose face was smashed in with a brick because she did not make her daily quota in brick maker’s prison. Pictures of these children are on my desk reminding me that children like Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego still live today.
Please join us in prayer! We need a lot of wisdom as we are developing the entire program from scratch 80% is complete. If you want to join the team, just email me at my personal email below. You can keep up with all progress at this link: www.gogoodnews.org/mfh/
P.S. IN THE NEXT CHAPTER OF THIS STORY OF GOD’S GRACE, TERESA AND I WILL BE INTERVIEWING CHILDREN WHO NEED A HAVEN OF REST AT MY FATHER’S HOUSE. PLEASE PRAY FOR US!
