My Life Change

13th Jun.   1 minute read

From Pakistan to the West Midlands…

I was born into a Christian family, but I made my own decision to follow Jesus, as a young man. My conversion experience was very powerful, and afterwards, there was a radical change in my life. I was so excited about knowing Jesus, and I wanted to share the gospel with anyone who would listen. Around that time, God brought a lot of Muslims into my life, especially through my work. I shared my faith with as many as I could, and some of them accepted Christ. I began to see reaching out to Muslims as my calling.

In Pakistan, there are many barriers to prevent Christians from sharing the good news with Muslims. In the UK, it’s much easier. So, to fulfil my calling, moving to the UK seemed wise. I spent two years at Bible college in Bristol, then went to London for my Theology degree. At the end of my degree, my next step wasn’t clear, but I prayed and believed God would open a door. Around that time, I met John Bagg, who reassured me that God had a plan. I began to investigate opportunities with WEC and I discovered Neighbours Worldwide.

Life is not random. We are in God’s plan. I firmly believe that.

Working here, the most enjoyable thing for me is building relationships with the muslim community, communicating God’s truth through conversation and actions. I hope to see people coming to Christ. It can take time and it’s not easy, but we hope for the best. Muslims often have misconceptions about Christians – they are told we are immoral and worship three gods. But when they meet Christians, they realise these things aren’t true, and they start to open up to us. Many students are coming to English club, and that’s not by chance. Life is not random. We are in God’s plan. I firmly believe that.

Find out more about our Neighbours Worldwide ministry

The world is on your doorstep! In the UK there is a thriving and growing population of people from areas of the world where the gospel is not easily heard. Although living in the UK, most of these families still have no real knowledge of Christ or contact with the christian church. Neighbours Worldwide aims to reach unreached ethnic groups in the UK and Ireland. Working alongside existing churches, Neighbours Worldwide workers teach English, lead Bible studies, visit families, give out Christian literature and do all they can to share the gospel in a relevant way.

We need you to get involved

If you want to build relationships with ethnic groups in your community email us.
