[fusion_text]A mere 1.6% of Pakistan’s population is Christian, but that does nothing to dampen Rev. Patras Nazir’s spirit. This visionary, energetic Christian leader has been inspired by the Holy Spirit to train and equip pastors throughout Pakistan.
As founder of Pakistan Christian Leadership Ministries, Rev. Nazir has used his English language skills to translate Outline Bible Resources into Urdu. Leadership Ministries Worldwide’s donors financed the printing of 2,000 sermon booklets based on The Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible®. The demand for the books was so great that Rev. Nazir recently printed 1,500 additional books: “These resources are unique in Pakistan – such study materials are not available in Pakistan in English or Urdu.”
In just the past 2 months, he has traveled to 5 cities in different corners of Pakistan, carrying the books he has translated to train Christian pastors, church leaders and evangelists. Rev. Nazir travels by train and bus, carrying loads of books on his back or in bags, often through hostile territory.
Yet Rev. Nazir is not discouraged: “The greatest rewards of my ministry are the salvation and winning of souls for Christ through our preaching and teaching. When people invite us to return to their churches again and again, it means that God’s Holy Spirit is touching and blessing them through us.”
“Through our translation work, thousands of people come to know the methods and principles of teaching and preaching, and the profundity of the Biblical message. They have been equipped and trained and are working in different areas throughout Pakistan. We continue this work for the glory of the Lord as God makes it possible for us.”
