Pastor O

Recent Ministry

In the village to the East, we are excited to report an increased boldness from the believers as they share the good news with others. Pray they would not lose their eagerness to share and that many people will come to Christ.

One of the families in this group are planning to get baptized this month. Praise God for this step of obedience. The son in this family is growing exponentially in his faith and obedience. He is daily studying the Bible with his fiancé and encouraging her in the faith.

  • Pray for the believers in the village to the East to continue to share their faith boldly.
  • Pray for the family as they prepare to be baptized. Pray for the son and his fiancé to grow in their faith.

I am consistently meeting with the group in the village to the South. We study the Word together each time, and I’m encouraged by the faithful steadiness from the members in this group. I desire this group to grow together into becoming a church body, committed to God’s Word and to each other.

  • Pray for the group to continue to persevere and grow in their faith.
  • Pray for their knowledge of God’s Word to increase through their studies.
  • Pray for the group to have unity as brothers and sisters in God.

I mentioned a family who saw the power of God through the miraculous healing of a woman’s cancer. This family has been meeting with us frequently to discuss the truth, and their interest has grown more each time. The husband and his relatives keep asking me to come back again and share more with them. They desire us to start a meeting with each that meets weekly. Some of the family have professed belief in Jesus Christ, and others are very close. We are encouraged by this and expect to see more people come to faith through this family.

  • Pray for the believers to grow in their relationship with God, to stand firm on his promises, and to encourage others to come to faith.
  • Pray for those in the family who are close to faith to surrender their lives to God wholeheartedly and to make the declaration of faith.
  • Pray for the pastor and his family and for their needs to be met.

We pray for you and thank the Lord for your service and love for Jesus Christ.

Pastor O Story

(Editors Note: Names and places have been changed or redacted due to government persecution.)

We are proud to introduce Pastor O who is serving in the Middle East. Pastor O has served in ministry for many years and began being supported by White Fields in 2018. Take a moment to read his testimony of how he became a believer in Jesus.

“For many years, I thought that I was a Christian because I was part of the Catholic church. I had the title but had no idea about the grace of God. Because of my Christian identity, I was often ridiculed by my coworkers about my religion. They used to challenge my beliefs continually and, although I claimed to be a Christian, I had no understanding of the Bible or answers to their questions.

This constant conflict created hate in my heart against them, and I started to search to understand both religions. My motivation was not to know God but to be able to win arguments. I was a very bitter person and lost jobs repeatedly because of my antagonism. The saddest part is that I also lost many friends. I had arguments to make, but I didn’t have a hope to give them because I was personally a hopeless person.

One day I met a Baptist pastor at a wedding party who reached out to me and came to visit me in my home. It was interesting to find that he was involved in sharing the Christian faith with Muslims. As I listened to him more, I was shocked to see how he trusted them, loved them, and considered them friends. He invited me to his church, and I found many new believers who had come to Christ from the majority religion. I discovered that, without loving them, there is very little hope of reaching them.

This Pastor challenged me and told me that I needed to admit my sins and accept the grace offered to me through the gospel. I prayed and asked Jesus Christ to come into my heart, and I was baptized. I finally found the hope that had been missing. I believe that Jesus is God, that He is the only way to salvation and that He alone offers eternal life and reconciliation with God. Offering this great hope to others is now my mission.”
