Christians of Pakistan by Majida Magdleen

My name is Majida Magdleen. I am a Pakistani Christian. Currently, I am living in Karachi, Pakistan. I belong to a middle-class family. In this story I will explain the difficult situation of Pakistani Christians and my role.

The Christians of Pakistan are facing lot of hardships here. As we are the Body of Jesus Christ, and as a human being, I feel sorry for them that these peoples are going through lot of difficulties. Even the basic necessities are unable to be fulfilled yet. We are living in the independent country as a minority here. My heart weeps with tears for my Christian brothers and sisters. I am unable to help all these people financially, but I help them with my personal support and living hope and prayers. Many people have died tolerating these hardships.

I prayed for these people day and night. I requested in my prayers that Jesus Christ come to my home and I wanted God to show His mercy on our nation, and solve the problems of His nation. I fasted and prayed to see Jesus Christ and wanted to share these issues in person. I believe that my God is bigger than these problems. It is written in the scripture that “with people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Because He is almighty God. He Who is Holy, Who is true, Who has the key of David, Who opens and no one will shut, and Who shuts and no one opens. One day our God will show His mercy and shower His infinite and everlasting blessings on His nation.

The sacrifice of Jesus Christ shows love, mercy, and grace for the entire world. I tried to walk on the same path as my Jesus Christ did. I have tolerated too many hardships in my whole life, suffering and battling with various diseases. In my whole life there was one person, who always was with me and helped me through my whole life, even when I was very ill. He was my Jesus Christ, Who healed me also.

I had worked as a social worker and physio technician and served the society. God has given me healing power and many peoples have been released from the demons, many have been healed from different diseases, lots of issues have been resolved. I go to different homes for prayer and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

During my entire life I observed and found that my Christian brothers and sisters are struggling with poverty, disability, illiteracy, homelessness, menial jobs, and mentally depressed. Many peoples have lost their family members due to accidents or natural deaths, especially after the death of the head of the family, the whole situation is totally changed. That brings a financial crisis and day by day the family goes in debt. There were very few resources to be educated. This is the most fundamental aspect of success because without education there is no success. When I surveyed the society I found that the people did not have money to get good education and live a successful life. I have met lots of people with various issues, widows, orphans, having worst condition of their homes. The people used to discuss their family issues with me. I had helped some of the people with limited resources, but I have not helped them fully because of less resources, and much more problems. Few people from our society had helped to solve these issues. I have helped a person suffering from kidney failure, I have given the fee of poor children from my own pocket and once I had helped a sick old man and have provided treatment. His family members have left him alone with no financial support. I along with my family members took care of him and provided food and physiotherapy. I had also given physiotherapy to many indigent peoples who were unable to bear the physiotherapy expenses, because I really want to serve the humanity. I pray for these needy and poor peoples daily. Many peoples are very, very poor and going through tough time in their lives, even they have no money to feed themselves. They are living hand-to-mouth. Currently I am paying the fees of some school children with the help of community members.

By the will of God, I will be establishing a medical center for physically handicapped special children and adults. I will establish school for those people who cannot pay their fees. Lastly I want to start a hospital where peoples will be treated free of cost for poor families and I will establish old home. I will provide food and will fulfill their basic needs.

My aim of life is to serve my Lord God and pray for these peoples by helping them with my whole heart. Just as Jesus Christ did by giving salvation, healing and doing charity works.

I humbly request to my Heavenly God in the Name of Jesus Christ that He bring a big revival in Pakistani Christians. According to the book of Deuteronomy Chapter 8:13, And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail. God said love your community. Jesus said “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. Jesus said whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren that you do unto me. When I was hungry you give me to eat, when I was thirsty you give me to drink, now enter into the home of my father.

I believe that my God will open the hearts of my brothers and sisters in the name of Jesus Christ by joining hands with me to help out these brothers and sisters and make them active, prosperous and joyful. I request all my brothers and sisters who are reading this story to pray for me, my entire family and the Pakistani Christians. The prayers can lock and unlock Heaven. The prayers can open the hearts of the peoples. Prayer is the key to success.
