God is our guide, and He will take us to heaven for our eternal reward. But before we have our eternal reward, He has lots of work for us here on earth. He has given us the task of being salt and light to the nations so that the peoples will glorify His Name. Have you ever thought that when we heal the sick, give to the poor, find cures for diseases, fight for justice, you name it, we glorify our Heavenly Father? What are you doing right now to bring glory to His Name?
Pray that the Lord will guide someone to glorify Christ among the Khunsari people of Iran.
What happens when a child is ill and there are no doctors or hospitals nearby? What happens when they are inflicted with contagious diseases such as scarlet fever, whooping cough, pulmonary tuberculosis, or typhoid fever? Many times the child may die. Due to the lack of available treatment for these diseases the infant mortality rate where the Khunsari people live is high even by Central Asian standards. Not only does the lack of medical care shorten the life of children, but it also shortens the life expectancy for adults, which is a mere 65 years. Such is the life of the Khunsari people of Iran.
The Khunsaris also live in an area that is 100 percent Muslim. Their area is closed to anyone who desires to share the message of Christ. Since the message is not allowed to be shared or Christian resources available, the Khunsaris continue to live with a cloak of spiritual darkness surrounding them. They would not understand the idea of freedom in Christ.Learn more at joshuaproject.net
Ask God to remove the spiritual darkness from the hearts and minds of the Khunsari people. Pray that believers with medical skills will soon be able to bring them much needed services and introduce them to the Great Physician. Pray that Christ will be glorified by those who help the Khunsari people find their savior.-NW
