Jesus is our Healer and our Hiding Place

Jesus said: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”  (Matthew 11:28-30, Message Bible)

Jesus gives us rest when we come to Him and unburden our cares, woes, fears, worries and troubles upon Him. Let us come and be refreshed in His presence. There is healing in His name, for Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew) means salvation (wholeness, health, soundness, completeness, prosperity, deliverance and preservation). He will restore us into wholeness for our well-being as we worship Him and make Him our All in All.

“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah” (Psalm 32:7)

    Greetings in the name of our savior and Lord Jesus Christ, from His servant, Asphena Elizabeth Marriam from Pakistan.

    Lord Jesus Christ you said to your Apostles, I leave you Peace, My Peace I give it to you ……….

    The Peace of The Lord be with you….

    Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations. Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

    I am extremely overwhelmed in God to see your website and to come to know about your Ministry. I pray to God Almighty that more and more people may come to know Him and accept Lord Jesus as their savior, through your most noble evangelical service towards the mankind.

    I too, as an evangelist and a servant of God in one way or the other am eager to join hands with your mission in proclaiming The Good News of God to the people still unreached, like in Pakistan, to The Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus etc.

    That I accepted Lord Jesus Christ as my personal savior nine year ago when I was a young crusader with Holy Bible in my hands moving streets to streets proclaiming the Good News of God door to door, to the poor and rich alike, to Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus alike. By the great mercy of Our Savior Lord Jesus Christ I have saved scores of unguided people and with His mercy now they are believers and they are Christians now living meaningful lives. It is not easy and safe to evangelize Muslims in Pakistan though, I by the grace of God worked fearlessly and succeeded and am determined to go ahead against all odds. God is my savior and my protector. I shall not be harmed by any adversary. Lord Jesus Christ before His ascension into heaven commanded His apostles “Go and preach The Good News to all The Nations”

    By associating myself with your noble Ministry I will acquire more wisdom and understanding of The Word of God .Besides I will be able in supporting my family especially providing my children with a good quality education so that they can become a responsible Christians in their future lives and on the platform of The Ministry of Christ, evangelize more and more people who don’t know Lord Jesus Christ and saving astray souls in Pakistan.

    I have seen on your website that you have Gospel preaching in many languages including in Hindi the native language of India but to evangelize Muslims I strongly believe that you must also include the native language of Pakistan, Urdu besides Punjabi and Saraiki.

    I am well versed with these languages spoken, written in Pakistan and am in a strong position to translate your message of God from English into Urdu, Punjabi and Saraiki so that the Muslims who speak, write and understand these languages can be benefited with The Word of God through you and can accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. I have always observed while on mission towards Muslims that the Muslims are always in the search of truth as regard as the faith is concerned, they are the most unguided people with the teachings of Quran which teaches against Christ Jesus and Christianity. Quran is a book which has misguided more than a billion souls around the globe. Therefore it is out utmost responsibility as the disciples of Christ let them tell the truth about God. Those who understand the truth immediately embraces Christianity.

    I therefore request you humbly in submission to God to post The Word of God in Urdu, Punjabi, Saraiki etc. so that more and more Muslims can take benefit from your Evangelical web site especially in Pakistan and for those who are living in various countries around the globe. As a translator of your ,messages the fund you will spend on translation will in turn be utilized in the work of God in Pakistan. More and more work is needed in Pakistan despite rampant persecution of Christians.

    The Word of God and the Faith:

    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth with without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And The Spirit of The God (Holy Spirit) moved upon the face of the waters. Genesis 1:1 & 2

    In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word (Jesus) was with God (God The Father), and the Word was God. John 1:1

    Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrew 11:1

    But without faith it is impossible to please Him (God): for him that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a redeemer of them that diligently seek him. Hebrew 11:6

    By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith. Hebrew 11:7

    By faith Abraham, when he was called to go into a place (Israel) which he should after receive for an inheritance, Obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. Hebrew 11:8

    About Pakistan:

    Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a break away country from India. It has a 1,046-kilometre (650 mi) coastline along the Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman in the south, is bordered by Afghanistan and Iran in the west, and India in the east and China in the far northeast.[7] Tajikistan also lies very close to Pakistan but is separated by the narrow Wakhan Corridor. Thus, it occupies a crossroads position between South Asia, Central Asia and the Middle East.The region forming modern Pakistan was at the heart of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization and then later was the recipient of Vedic, Persian, Indo-Greek, Islamic, Turco-Mongol, and Sikh cultures. The area has witnessed invasions and/or settlements by the Indo-Aryans, Persians, Greeks, Arabs, Turks, Afghans, Mongols and the British.

    The total area of Pakistan is 340,403 sq mi and the population is 170,328,000 The national language of the country is Urdu, whereas Punjabi, Saraiki, Sindhi, Hindco, Pashtoo, Farsi. English has a vital status among languages in the elite society of Pakistan as it is in India. This is because of the influence of British Rule in the India.

    This invasion of India by all the above invaders has created a combination of socio-cultural variations and led vast diversifications in the creation of many languages in the Indian Sub-continent.

    The history of Christianity in Indian Sub-continent goes back with the arrival of St. Thomas in India Christianity is India’s third-largest religion, with approximately 24 million followers, constituting 2.3% of India’s population. The works of scholars and Eastern Christian writings state that Christianity was introduced to India by Thomas the Apostle, who visited Muziris in Kerala in 52 CE to proselytize amongst Kerala’s Jewish settlements. It is generally agreed that Christianity in India is almost as old as Christianity itself and spread in India even before it spread in many, predominantly Christian, nations of Europe and America etc.

    It has to be remembered at this point that the nations now, India, Pakistan & Bangladesh were undivided and One Nation, India.

    Languages:

    Native language of Pakistan is Urdu. The history of Urdu begins with the advent of Islam from Arabia, Persia and Afghanistan. In Lucknow the Persian speaking scholars with the combination of Hindi and Persian created a new language with Arabic fonts. This combination was so beautiful and sound so sweet, that it was immediately accepted by all the citizens of India (The undivided India). After independence Pakistan was created and Urdu was adopted its National Language, in United Nations. Besides Urdu many languages are spoken, written in Pakistan. Urdu can be understood, spoken in many countries viz. India, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Nepal, Maldives, Persia, Malaysia, Indonesia, in most of Arabic countries etc.

    Demographic Distribution of Urdu:

    India
    150 million
    Pakistan
    140 million

    Bangladesh
    700,000
    Nepal

    N.B: There are many other countries where the migrant Pakistanis and Indians live and they speak Urdu.

    For evangelizing the strayed lots I can translate and will do the voice work for your website for the proclamation of The Word of God and you will be blessed abundantly.

    I would like you to share The Ministry of Christ through which we are working among poor Christians and unaware Muslim communities in Pakistan. The Christians in Pakistan are the most persecuted lots and have no rights in this Islamic country even though we are marching fearlessly as the crusaders of God in proclaiming His Word. As to the Christian values we must love our enemies and must let them know with our good deeds that they may repent and get converted to Christianity and saved.

    The Ministry of Christ:

    Our Ministry is based in one of the oldest cities in the province of Punjab, Toba Tek Singh. Toba Tek Singh is centrally located and is accessible to most of the cities in Punjab province. We therefore cover most of the unrepresented (virgin and not evangelized) places of Punjab. We offer Sunday church Services, Sunday school, Women Fellowship, Youth Fellowship. Health Camps for the underprivileged, Vocational Trainings and Schools for the poor Christian Children and Orphans etc. With your support we can do much more in future and build a better Christian Society in Pakistan.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Amen

    I look forward to hear from your valued Ministry.

    Thank you.

    May God bless you and your Ministry abundantly!

    In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

    Sr. Asphena Elizabeth Marraim
