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 larger 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 a 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 during meeting with Hindu Converts:
this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35
Rajesh Kumar, and her family who live in Quetta and who attended the meeting at the house church on Sunday evening. Her husband is called Dinesh, and
they are former Hindus, originally from India, who travelled to Quetta through Dinesh’s work. Life has been hard for this family, not only have they
been persecuted for being Hindu, but now they have faced the same persecution for being Christian. It’s somewhat ironic, given the situation in India,
where Hindus have readily burnt down Christian Churches and arrested Pastors, even killing them in extreme circumstances.
The point here is one of love. And this is where Pastor Adil Samuel an officer for BACA must take much credit. He has loved these people, with a Christian
love and that in itself is preaching the Gospel through action. That is why this family will soon take baptism, committing their lives to the Lordship
of Christ and are now born again. They are active participants in the community at large, because they have welcomed, loved and discipled.
Quetta is a special place and to the Christians here, I want to pay tribute. In this place, they love one another. They disciple one another, and support
one another, that has created a unity sadly lacking in many other areas of Pakistan, which explains the lack of effective Christian Witness. Maybe
it’s because of the sense of fear and persecution that has brought them together, but God is on the move, and there are many, many more secret believers
who want to follow the Lord Jesus in Balochistan. We know of small communities in Waziristan and Chaman near the Afghan border, plus we now have access
to an underground church in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.
So, thanks to the supporters of the BPCA, we are reaching out more and slowly we are seeing results never before imagined. The spreading of the Gospel
will never stop, as a Jesus said to Peter in Matthew 16:18, “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates
of Hades will not overcome it.” The Church cannot die and will not die, so have faith, brothers and sisters, God is growing and protecting his church,
even in the most dangerous places.
