  • GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST TO Portuguese Assembly of God This is Aazam Waris working as a Pastor with Assemblies of God Church, Sanam Chowk, Islamabad, PAKISTAN under the supervision of General Council and Provincial Council of AG. I am so excited and happy to be able to share my Church’s History and testimony with you. The story of our Church is inspired by 23rd April 2017. It was 2017, today is 2020, three years and two months of great journey. We started with ONE family and today we have SEVENTY families. In our culture a phrase is very famous; WAS LEFT ALONE FROM HOME, PEOPLE HAVE MET, THE CONVOY MADE. The same thing happened to us and by the grace of God we are leading above 300 people convoy today. God brought me in a muslim society to plant a Church, where I am ministering to now a days there are hundreds of mosques and there is only and only one Church. But thank God this little spark became a great fire in this area. Everyday God is doing great things through this Church, the sick are recovering, sinners are repenting, God’s power is being revealed to the gentiles, and the Gospel is being spread among gentiles. We started from a rented home Church with rent of 15000 PKR per month. As the number of people increasing day by day, this rented place become too strait for us 2-kings 6:1-3; so we have anointed a piece of land of ONE KANAL (KANAL equals exactly 605 square yards or 1⁄8 acre; A KANAL is equal to 20 MARLAS) which is located near the rented Church, daily we are praying to buy that piece of land of ONE KANAL for last 11 months. Our Need As God stirred the spirit of the local Church to purchase that, we have talked to the land lord, God has prepared him to sale that out, his demand is 1350000.00 PKR $8000.00 per Marla, We are praying to purchase 20 MARLAS, total requiring amount for this measured land is 27000000.00 PKR $160000.00; By the Grace of God the local Church, In the midst of a very severe trial PANDEMIC COVID-19, their overflowing joy and extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability, entirely on their own. The local Church has raised 4000000.00 PRK $24000.00 till this day. People have honored God with their Gold, Silver, money and precious things. Our need is 23000000.00 PKR $136000.00 to pay the whole amount of ONE KANAL land, and we have only 5 months to pay the remaining amount. This is a very big project for our small church but we believe that Our God is Almighty God there is nothing impossible for Him. This is our humble request that pray for this project and stand with us. Your generous contribution will be highly appreciated before the LORD. God bless you and your family. Thank you for your time and interest.
