Christmas Blessing with iampoorandneedy.org

To end our 2017 year, our dear friend an school teacher in Pakistan, arranged to have a nice program with a full meal for over 600 people from over 140 families.  The slaves are not allowed to leave the slave masters property, so our sister made all the arrangements to bring the program to the people.  You can see the brick kilns in the background of some of the pictures, and you can see the bricks that these dear slaves make as well.

The afflicted shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the Lord! May your hearts live forever! All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you.
Psalm 22:26–27

Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.
Proverbs 14:31

We were also able to provide gift boxes for 250 children, at two different locations.  These gift boxes contained candies, chocolates, snacks, toys, and clothing; socks, shoes, hats, dresses, pants and shirts.

Every single one of these children we help is a slave.  All are born into slavery through no fault of their own.  Many of these children are 3rd, 4th and sometimes 5th generation slaves – meaning that their parents, parents, parents were also born into slavery.

“He that has pity on the poor shall himself be maintained; for he has given of his own bread to the poor. He that gives liberally secures victory and honour; but he takes away the life of them that possess them.”
Proverbs 22:9

Please take a few minutes to watch a short video with all of the pictures from this wonderful day.  I am sure that these slaves got a small taste of how much the LORD truly loves them.

What we do, we do in service to our LORD and Savior, Jesus, the Man called Christ.  He taught us to share what we have with those who have needs.  Our greatest desire is to see every single one of these people freed.

We don’t have a big ministry.  We aren’t trying to build a big organization.  We are people who are grateful for everything that the LORD has done for us, and we follow what He taught us.  He taught us to share.

And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:33–40

We have never made one penny off of any donation that anyone has ever given to us.  In fact, when someone donates, the companies that take the donations for us – Paypal and Gofundme – charge a fee, usually around 10% to process the donations.  We pay the 10% out of our available funds so that we can honestly say that 100% of every donation goes towards supporting these slaves, and towards paying off their debts and setting them free.

If you would like to share your bread with these beautiful people who are in slavery due to no fault of their own, please click on the donate button below, and God bless you for caring for the least of these, our brothers and sisters.


Of course, I don’t mean your giving should make life easy for others and hard for yourselves. I only mean that there should be some equality. Right now you have plenty and can help those who are in need. Later, they will have plenty and can share with you when you need it. In this way, things will be equal. As the Scriptures say, “Those who gathered a lot had nothing left over, and those who gathered only a little had enough.”
2 Corinthians 8:13–15
