In a messy world, what is our organization's mission?

In a messy world, what is our organization's mission?

Jul 22

We are constantly embarking on new endeavors, and it appears that God is graciously opening doors for us to make a difference in various areas. However, we have chosen to decline certain opportunities that may have appeared appealing, as we want to ensure that everything we do aligns with the mission God has entrusted to us. We strive to avoid spreading ourselves too thin, focusing instead on three pillars that serve as our core areas of emphasis.

First and foremost, our foundation lies in setting slaves free. This will always be at the heart of our work. Alongside this, we provide food and shelter for a period of six months. Regardless of any other activities we engage in, our ultimate goal is to rescue individuals from the clutches of slavery.

Secondly, we have established a school specifically for slaves, currently accommodating around 250 children. Among them are freed slaves as well as those who are still in bondage but have obtained agreements for their education. Our leadership team has emphasized that literacy is highly regarded in Pakistan, particularly among Christians. Education is a transformative force that can bring generational change, making it a priority for us.

The third key focus for us at this point is our church, where we have a congregation of approximately 400-500 individuals who faithfully gather each week. Our pastor is truly dedicated to shepherding and loving the people. While we look forward to planting more churches in the future, we are committed to holding services wherever there is a need and an opportunity. This often takes us to brick kilns, where we not only conduct worship services but also provide nourishment to the slaves. For many of them, this might be the only church service they attend all year. Therefore, it is crucial that we play our part in ensuring that the body of Christ is encouraged and uplifted.

In Isaiah 61:1 (NIV), we find a powerful verse that resonates with our ministry's mission:

"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."

We are wholeheartedly focused on going where others may not venture, reaching out to those deemed the "least of these," and sharing the good news of the gospel with them. Some of the most remarkable moments of my life have unfolded as we care for those whom society has forgotten. Isaiah 61:1 captures the essence of our church outreach ministry, encapsulating our deep commitment to proclaiming freedom, binding up broken hearts, and bringing light into the lives of those imprisoned by darkness.
