Leighton Medley handing out free bible during last outreach programmes in March this year.
As you all should know by now BPCA have been holding regular outreaches in Pakistan every March and November for the last two years. Our long term plan is to initiate a theological seminary that will create new Pastors empowered with a better understanding of the bible. For a long while we have been concerned about corruption within existing church establishments in Pakistan and a focus on legalism, rather then the redemption through faith that the new testament delivers.
Brother Leighton has shared a short reminder of the November outreaches and we invite churches in Pakistan who want to partner with us to contact us and provide potential outreach venues, to fill the few dates we have left during next month. Here is Leighton’s message:
The time is soon upon us, when we visit Pakistan in November for another round of ministry. Our focus this time, is not only on the parables of the kingdom, but also the difficult doctrine of “Definite Atonement”, where we will focus on the sufficiency of Christ. We will also be visiting Kasur, to pray for the new school soon to be built there, plus building relationships with the local brick kiln communities.
As we approach Christmas, we should be looking to God’s greatest gift to us, the Lord Jesus Christ who came, lived and died so that we may live. I urge a fresh unity amongst our brethren in Pakistan, so that we show the spirit of Christian love to those who are not saved. We must put our differences to one side and acknowledge that we are one in Christ. Luke 11:17 tells us “every kingdom divided against itself cannot stand”, this is true of the church in Pakistan and across the world.
The divides and splits we see, because of self seeking glory hunters are destroying the church from within. We are not called to bring about our own kingdoms, but the kingdom of Christ, for “we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come.” (Hebrews 13:14) So beloved, let us unite in faith, showing brotherly love, forgetting what was behind, forgiving those wrongs and “pressing forward toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:14)
If God could forgive us, then how much more should we forgive each other. If we are united, then we are strong, and we will be better together, for if we put our faith and trust in a redeemer God who gave his life for us, how much more should we. Jesus said in John 15:13, “greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Let us not just live for God only, but also for one another, for if Yahweh is with us, who can be against us, see you in November.

We will be distributing free bibles and audio bibles were needed. Such events do not come without a cost and we are praying that this work will lead to a longer term full-time theological seminary being created in Pakistan, over the next two years.
