“I was ready to give up.”
This is a common theme we heard in the comments from attendees at the Global Leadership Summit event in Pakistan.
But thanks to our partners, faithful donors and prayer warriors, the GLS encouraged hundreds of leaders in Pakistan to continue in their work or their ministry with new passion and vigor.
This is an amazing testimony from of one of those leaders:
“As a pastor, watching my church die was really painful.
I recently had a stroke too, and my family was suffering due to my health and low self-esteem. I was at the edge of giving up on God. I even tried suicide. I have been praying for the last two years, expecting God would do something supernatural in return for my prayers, and revive me… but nothing happened.
Then I was given a brochure about the GLS by one of my pastor friends who comes to pray with me often. My travel and lodgings were sponsored for me, and that was a great help in my decision to attend.
I thank my heavenly Father so much that through the GLS, and especially through Pastor Albert Tate, the spirit of the Lord spoke to me. During Albert’s session, tears started rolling down my cheeks. I watched the entire session with blurred focus, because I was crying the whole time.
A pastor sitting beside me, who I didn’t know, held my hand to comfort me. In that moment, God did something supernatural in me. Before God does something supernatural, I have to surrender whatever I have, no matter how small it may be. I am amazed by God’s plan for my life.
I came back changed.
I came back to my church, and preached again that Sunday. After the service, a Muslim lady who had recently moved next door to my church while I was away for the GLS, met me and asked me to pray for her. After two days, she came back to our service and asked for prayer again… She was healed.
Before she left, she gave me an envelope that had the exact amount of money needed to run the church and provide salary to the church staff for a whole year! Praise God! She is a regular visitor to our service now and we are praying for her salvation.
I look at myself and look at what God has done, and I can only say thanks to God for working in mysterious ways. And thank you to the GLS.”
Thank you to those who prayerfully and financially support the GLS around the world so that impact like this can multiply.
