Pastor O

Recent Ministry

We persist in our visits to homes and refugee tents in the village to the East despite persecution from authorities. We have been visiting with one family for a while discussing crucial matters of faith. They are receptive to us and have asked us to visit them as frequently as possible to talk about these issues.

Recently, we went back to visit another family we had not seen in a long time. They are from a village to the north where we had been ministering years ago. However, we received too much persecution to continue there. This family received us well, and we hope for more occasions for fellowship and to encourage them.

The families we visit regularly are still hungry for the gospel, and more knowledge of God’s Word. We thank God for this and pray he will continue to equip us with the ability to minister to them.

Pray for discernment as we continue to meet with many new people. Most of our ministry is to non-believers of the majority religious background, which can be difficult and must be kept quiet.

  • Pray for more open doors to share the good news.
  • Pray for wisdom and protection as we minister to the believers and non-believers.
  • Pray for healing for a sick child in one of the families.
  • Pray for the physical and spiritual needs of the believers.
  • Pray for my family and me to have everything that we need and that we would be encouraged in this work.

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.”
