Pakistan: Youth Sunday School Teacher Shares With Muslims

Pakistan

Esther Bibi, a Pakistani Christian, told the following story to workers from The Voice of the Martyrs who visited her in Pakistan.

“My family and I work at a brick kiln making bricks. We live in a colony of brick kiln workers. All the families live in small brick huts near the kiln. We cook outside in the courtyard.

“About two-thirds of the families are Muslim and the rest are Christian. Brick kiln workers have a very hard life.

“I am the oldest of six children. My parents are very poor. For many years they worked 14 hours a day so we could go to school. When I was in the sixth grade, I was very sick. My father’s daily routine while I was sick was to pray for me the whole night. He encouraged me with his prayers. Praise the Lord, I was healed! This taught me to pray for sick people.

“After I finished 10th grade, I started a house church for 10 Christian families from the brick kiln colony. A pastor came to lead a biblical teaching, and I taught Sunday school. Muslims began to attend. They were very interested in learning about the miracles of Jesus and the stories of people from the Bible.
