Over the last few years we have run a number of training seminars in Pakistan, mainly in the cities of Karachi and Lahore and the surrounding areas. The focus has been on encouraging and strengthening the Christian church, particularly the leaders. In a political and religious environment that severely restricts the development of the Christian minority, ongoing support of Christian churches is tremendously important. It is impressive how the Pakistani Nehemiah workers selflessly perform this service, despite very real danger to their own lives. The International Nehemiah Network continues to offer regular support to these people.
