Life in Pakistan:

In the nation of Pakistan, violent terrorist attacks such as bombings, shootings and kidnapping, are a regular occurrence. As we enjoy relative safety in the United States, the people of Pakistan fear for their lives as they are confronted with a daily reality of death and fear. Attacks from terrorist groups like the Taliban are headline news on a weekly basis as they continue to kill Shia Muslims and Christians in the name of Allah. Shia Mosques and Christian churches are threatened frequently with bombs, and thousands die each year as a result of these attacks.

Even schools are not immune to these acts of terror. In December of 2014, seven Taliban insurgents stormed a Pakistani school and murdered 132 children before being subdued. In a region plagued by violent conflict, the need for Christ has never been greater. Even under such treacherous conditions, the frontline workers of Call of Hope are continuing to provide help and hope to a region that is desperate for change. 

Of the 200 million people of Pakistan, 96% are Muslim and the religion of Islam is a cornerstone of Pakistani culture Despite the danger, Call of Hope front-line workers are reaching out to the large Muslim population in a variety of ways including church planting, medical treatment, humanitarian aid, and evangelism. 

Our Work in Pakistan:

As terrorists continue to threaten, persecute and kill Christians in Pakistan, Call of Hope is responding to terror with the message of hope in Jesus. Front-line workers regularly provide help, assistance and Godly counsel to the persecuted and fearful Christians, encouraging them to preserve their witness for Christ in such a hostile environment. 

To encourage the believers, training seminars are held annually that provide rich biblical teaching and allow Christians to connect with on another. Each seminar includes a valuable Q&A time that always inspires deep discussions about many faith issues. Last year, congregations from 15 different churches joined together to hear a series of teachings from Brother Kahn entitled: How Do I Share God’s Word with Muslims?

The response was incredible as 10,000 people attended and many were inspired with courage and new ways to share their faith with Muslims. In downtown Faisalabad, the third largest city in Pakistan, two courageous Christians have opened a bookstore that displays Call of Hope literature and books. Every day at least two Muslims come to take advantage of the opportunity to take these books home or read them in the store over a cup of tea. In addition to the bookstore, a recording studio has been put in place to transpose Christian books into audio books in the native Pakistani tongue and distributed.

Clean water Project

Filtration systems in Pakistan can produce 2,000 liters of clean water per hour.

The majority of us are fortunate and have never really felt thirsty – we just turn on the tap and clean water comes out. Thankfully, we do not have to walk 3-5 miles to fill up our water bucket. Yet today, there are more than 750 million people on our planet who do not have access to clean water. That is roughly one in every 9 people!

In Pakistan, a country with a population of 200 million people, the infrastructure is simply not currently available to provide clean water. In 2015, more than 400 children under the age of 10 died due to malnutrition and de-hydration. As children grow up in this environment, many have fallen ill to dehydration related illnesses and other diseases resulting from the consumption of unsanitary water.

In order to solve this dire problem, Call of Hope is working to install a facility that has the capacity to produce 2,000 Liters of water per hour to those in need. Working with top professionals and engineers, the water plant has been designed to provide purified water over the next 10 years with relatively little maintenance. By providing clean water to communities in Pakistan, we are restoring their health and showing the love of Christ to a region that is so often surrounded by tragedy.
