Leighton Medley our BPCA Outreach Minister has returned to Pakistan to reach new communities with the true Gospel of Christ and to continue discipling those who have been already been reached through our previous campaigns. Leighton’s remit for this work is quite simple, he is to bolster the faith of Christians who have little access to regular church services setting up bible study leaders who will one day become ministers of the Gospel in rural communities, he is to bring revival and better understanding to Christian churches in Pakistan many of which have adopted a very legalistic theology and have forgotten the need for repentance, faith in Christ and the need to place our trust in Him. Leighton has also been reaching out to Muslims and we hope that soon his work will provide a dividend by bringing others to the family of God.
He has been having great success with many believers expressing revival, churchgoers committing their lives to Christ, and Muslims taking an interest in the Gospel though yet to commit to Christ. We hope with further donations to make Leighton’s role a permanent one in two years time. For this we will need the help and support of those who was to see Christ’s gospel flourishing in Pakistan and seek you help to finance this important ministry. One of our costs is the purchase of bibles at £4 each. If you would like to help please donate by clicking (here).
Below is one of Leighton’s recent accounts of an Outreach Meeting held in Quetta:
After a fun filled day on the 29th, where we had to change hotels due to safety issues, we finally got to do some ministry with the local Christian population. Quetta, is a fascinating city, at first appearance very dangerous to look at. There are many checkpoints with armed police and army staff everywhere and it can appear to the uninitiated very daunting. Yet, there are approximately 30000 Christians in this city, with many more to our knowledge, consisting of silent believers, who are made up largely of Persian and Pathan people to frightened to speak out because of repercussions.
