Mission Moment (Monday, Oct. 15, 2012)
Save Pakistan delivered 50 Urdu Bibles to the city of Nankana Sahib, which is a holy place for followers of the religion of Sikhism.

Nankana Sahib is the birth place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, whom Evangelist Haseeb referred to as "the dispeller of darkness." Guru Nanak was born in 1469. He was the first of 11 Sikh gurus.

We ask our members to PRAY for, GIVE to and GO on Mission: Nepal in 2013. This work is too important to not help. More than 97 percent of Nepal remains enslaved to false gods – from the more than 300 million deities of Hinduism to the dark deceit of Buddhism. More than 27 million people in this former Hindu kingdom are still considered unreached. Prayer warriors, financial supporters, and workers are needed to reach those who have not yet heard about Jesus, and to encourage those who are part of our body of Christ.
When: Sept. 19-Oct. 6, 2013.
Purpose: To continue serving with indige... Read more »
