It was a beautiful evening. as we started our program with prayer. The students presented Christmas Play,between the scenes we sang Christmas carols. My (Qamar's) brother Abraham Daniel preached a gospel message...I read a prophecy about the virgin birth from Isiah.
Santa brought gifts for the students. Abraham Daniel and his wife Sarah brought the "Operation Christmas Child" gifts for the students.
Samson gave closing remarks as he thanked our staff,students and parents. We had Christmas carols playing.There was such joy as the parents and students took pictures with Santa.

One of the best performance was by the little angels dancing to "Joy to the world" around the manger.
Surya and the Bheel women
A beautiful sunny day to visit Surya and the Bheel women. We are so humbled by there love and respect for us...the ladies welcomed us with garlands. I (Qamar) shared the word after we sang a song about Christmas. The birth of Jesus. I shared about Jesus coming to this world as The Way,The Truth and The Life. 9 women accepted Jesus as their savior. three young boys presented an action song about Noah. Surya had some sweets and tea for all of us to share. Click here to view the album.

Sewing Center Graduation 2018
A year ago today was the opening day for the Sewing Center. Now by the grace of God we have 10 girls graduated and another 12 ready to start their training in January. God is so faithful!!! We started our day early to go to the Sewing Center. As we arrived.we were welcomed by our pastors with rose petals and garlands.Always feel so humbled by their love and respect. Maureen our sewing teacher had made a Bheel outfit for me (Qamar) to wear for the ceremony. I changed into the beautiful outfit and talked with the girls as they were coming in for the program. One of the girls was unable to make it to the ceremony as she had a baby. The others were present,some with their parents. Samson welcomed everyone and I shared the word of God to encourage them. A sewing machine was given to each of the girls that graduated. We were able to give cash gifts to our sewing teacher Maureen and Miman, who comes once a week to teach
the girls about health and safety.
The new class of 12 girls was also present. They will be getting their new machines in January as they start their year long training.
Praise God for the provision. We were able to provide one of the best meals they could have...Samson prayed and blessed the food. Lunch was served.The graduating class, the new class and our pastors and their families joined us as we took them to an amusement park.
We had rented a vehicle to drive them to the amusement park in the city. Everyone was so excited. They definitely had a spring in their step and big smiles as we loaded up. As we arrived at the park they were eager to get in as this is the first time they had come to the city and of course they had never been to any place like this ever before and chances are
they never will afterwards either. The rides were so much fun to really make their day we treated everyone to an ice cream cone. Many of them had never had one. It was such a beautiful and memorable day. We praise God for His provision to bless these lovely ladies.

as the invitation was given after the film.

The Bheel girls are being blessed
Their lives are truly being transformed in all aspects. First and foremost each one has accepted Christ as their savior. Secondly they now have a trade ,they can use to earn an income for their families,last but not least they are learning to be confident and independent in many ways . Their families are so happy for them. They were excited to share in the excitement as each girl showed me their creations. Several of them made gifts for me. Which was so humbling to see their love and respect for us.
Maureen (their sewing teacher) shared how the girls love to learn. Her brother in law's daughter Sonia in living with them for this year,just so that she can learn how to sew. We already have more than 10 students wanting to enroll in January. We had 3 prospective students attending the day we visited. Miman our lady minister comes each week and teaches them about health and safety which has boosted their self esteem to unimaginable levels.
I was very satisfied to see all that they have learned. Each one was wearing an outfit that they made to show me,as well as a little girls outfit as a model for me to see. They are ready to graduate. We will hold a graduation ceremony in the first week of December. We will be giving the sewing machines they learned on to them as a graduation gift. So they have the tools and the training to be financially independent.
Once again thanks to all who partnered with us in this endeavor. May the Lord bless you!
An informal fellowship for Christian women.To fellowship and encourage each other as we share how we can enrich our lives.

Thank you so much for your prayers and support. Daniel's School in Pakistan is growing. We now have 115 students. Praise God!!!
We had a Parent/teacher meeting day to have parents visit and meet the teacher to discuss their student's progress. The parents are very satisfied with the education their children are recieving at Daniel's School. Most of our new admissions are refferals by parents.
We had a lovely evening with our school staff over pot luck dinner. Loving the Devotionals I'm having each morning before school with these lovely ladies. They all shared over dinner how they now look forward to our time together every morning.
Praise God for allowing me to share my thoughts with them~Qamar

Thank you so much for your prayers
Thanks everyone for your prayers,as many of you know Samson and I both came to Pakistan on August 31st. Praise God for safe travels. We have had a very busy schedule as we are at the school everyday. Excited to share that we now have 103 students at Daniel's School in Pakistan. We have 24 students from Christian families.We will be going to the tribal areas on Sunday.
In our last newsletter we asked you to pray for the elections. Praise God for a fairly nonviolent election day. We are praying for the newly elected Prime minister Mr. Khan to stay true to his words given in his first official speech to give rights to minorities.
It is still quite hot in Pakistan. The temperature is still in 100+ most days... inside the concrete buildings it feels several degrees higher...same is with the cold temperatures. Our house is constructed with brick and concrete like most houses in Pakistan. We currently do not have an air conditioner or a heater in the main part of the house only air conditioners,no heaters in the bedrooms. A new climate control converter system is now available in the market that has the air conditioner and a heater. We need $5000 to have it installed. May we ask that you prayerfully consider giving towards this need. You can give online via our website: www.ten14.org or send checks to:

Please pray as Pakistan is waking up to Election day today.
It is crucial that we have government that allows gospel advances. We have strict laws right now,but there are ways to share...yes there is always a risk...but that doesn't stop us from doing what God has called us to do!!!
As many of you know that Samson was planning to return to Pakistan at the end of July. He will now be returning at the end of August as there is a lot of Unrest in the country. We are being advised from Pakistan to not come yet. Our school in Pakistan is due to open for Fall semester 2018 on August 10th...this may change due to the outcome and situation after the elections.

Despite the high temperatures up to 118 degrees,our pastors are continuing to go out to share the gospel. We are thankful to each and everyone of our partners who make it possible for us to share the gospel with one of the most unreached people groups...The Bheel people.

Excited to share Women's Worth Thailand.
Pinky is a great leader. She is from Pakistan, now lives in Thailand. She teaches English at an ESL school. She has learned Thai language and engages well with the Thai and other nationalities. This is what she wrote me:
We were eight women(one of them left earlier as she had some appointment) from South Africa, Philippines, Thailand and Pakistan. We had a beautiful time praising and worshiping God together in our women's fellowship. Our topic was " Coming back to the heart of worship" . Everybody experienced God's love in a wonderful way, the bondage was broken, and deliverance was received..all glory to God.

Thank you so much for your prayers
. We had a tremendous trip to Thailand and Pakistan. Now back home in America, to attend several award ceremonies leading up to high school graduation for our son Daniel and graduation for our daughter Rebecca from Ouchita Baptist University.
The last email I sent before leaving was quite stressful. Thank you so much for your prayers. The person who sent threats to defame us and the ministry never said anything afterwards. We are believing the Lord stopped him. We don't want the Lord's work hindered or defamed in any way. We believe that prayer is our only weapon against such attacks. Please continue to lift us up in your prayers.
It was an awesome time to gather together with believers from around the world to learn and worship. We celebrated Resurrection Sunday in Thailand. The Lord has given us some neat strategies from this conference to reach Pakistan with the Gospel.
We praise God for providing the funds to purchase a new motorcycle for pastor Hurrya. Every 2-3 years we change the motorcycles for our pastors. Our pastors go out each day to reach out to the Bheels with the gospel message.
While in Pakistan,we visited the Sewing Center. The girls were eager to show me what they had stitched. They are learning the word of God as they come together each day. Once a week Miman comes and shares health and safety tips with the students.
Touching Hearts...Changing Lives
We are truly thankful to each and everyone of you for your Prayers and Support. You enable us to take the GOSPEL to Pakistan.

Please pray for safe travels and for us to be used for God's glory. We may have limited access on social media and will not be sending update emails while in Pakistan.
