About the Missionaries
About National Missionaries
The Lord God is raising up men and women living in Pakistan to be His ambassadors. These national missionaries have a passion to help the people in their nations understand Christ’s love through various ways. They pray for and minister to those who are sick. They provide income-generating gifts to families living in poverty. They clean up dirty villages. They help mothers and fathers value their children’s education and future development. They also have a deep burden to help people know and experience the love of Christ—just like they have experienced.
Because national workers were born and raised in the countries where they minister, they have few or no cultural barriers to overcome, so they can readily share the message of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard.

Why National Missionaries?
It’s true that national missionaries face obstacles when they endeavor to share the message of Jesus in communities. But they still have an enormous advantage over their coworkers from non-Pakistan lands. Today, more than 85 percent of Asian countries do not allow Western missionaries to minister freely. This restriction doesn’t apply to the many men and women the Lord has called to be national missionaries. When foreigners have to leave countries for various reasons, these brothers and sisters can stay and minister without interruption.
