While in India we planted five Afghani churches there. Now in Canada, our vision is to plant Afghani churches in the Greater Toronto area. We started a home church with six members and by God’s grace we are 10 members now. We also started an English home church in Mississauga area with three families, and now five families gather together on Friday evenings.
Trip to Europe
Praise God for a mission trip to Europe, where I had the opportunity to meet many of those whom I had shared the Gospel with through the Internet ministry. I met 120 Afghan Muslims in Netherlands and Germany, we had discussions everyday. Their hearts were prepared by the Holy Spirit to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. They opened their homes to me and were happy to hear what they had never had a chance to hear before.
We invited around 100 Afghan Muslims to our Easter Celebration. We had a blessed time of eating together, sharing the Word, singing Easter songs, showing the Jesus movie, and having a special program for children.
We have met two new Afghan families in Mississauga, three new Afghan families in Toronto who are very open to hear and know more about the Gospel. We have already started weekly visits with them, where we answer their questions, read the Bible, and pray with them.
Praise God for a great opportunity to proclaim the Word of God through the Sat7 TV for 14 days. My teaching videos on facebook and youtube are getting more followers and are in constant contact with me wanting to know more about Jesus. I teach two online classes every week to Afghan Bible College students New Delhi.
