SDOK, The Voice of the Martyrs’ sister mission in the Netherlands, took the video below of a brick maker in Pakistan. Do you think you could do that job all day, six days a week like Christians in Pakistan?

Rachid is a 7-year-old boy in Pakistan. Rachid’s uncle, Kazim, is an evangelist. After working as a farmer during the day, Kazim rode his bicycle from place to place at night telling people the good news of Jesus.
One night as he was getting ready, six radical Muslim men came to his house. The men did not like Kazim because he taught Muslims about Jesus.
Kazim whispered to Rachid, who was nearby, “Please take my Bible and keep it with you.” Kazim knew that the Muslims might try to harm him. They had tried to force him to give up his faith in Christ once before. He wanted to make sure his Bible would be safe.

Hasan is a Christian in Pakistan. One day when he got up in the morning, he prayed, “Oh Lord, today I will not do anything until you lead me to someone or bring someone to me who has lost hope and wants to know you. I want to be used by you directly.”
For several hours, nothing happened. “Nothing is going to happen,” Hasan thought. Just then, a man knocked on his door. Hasan invited him into his house.
The man was a Muslim who had walked three miles from his village to visit Hasan. “Someone told me about you, and I have come to you for prayer,” the man told Hasan. The man said he had been looking for a job for five years, but could not find one. “I am tired of my life,” he said.
Hasan was grateful to Jesus for answering his prayer for guidance. He told the Muslim, “You did not come here by chance. God brought you here. He wants to give you peace.” Hasan shared the truth about Jesus with the visitor and prayed for him. “I want to come back tomorrow,” the man said.
The next day, he returned. Hasan told him more about the God who save people from sin. The man was very excited! He wanted to know more about the one who gives people peace.
Now the man is going to church regularly. “Spring is coming into my life,” he said.
Thank God for leading the man to Hasan’s house. Pray that he will give his life to the Prince of Peace.

Nadia grew up in a Muslim home in Pakistan, where most of the people are Muslims. Her family slept on the roof during the hot summer season. (Many houses in Pakistan have flat roofs.) There was a church near her home.
One night, Nadia heard the pastor of the church praying over a loudspeaker. He sang worship songs, then he recited John 14:6, which says, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’”
