  1. Dear Brother,

    I am Nasir Aslam from Pakistan . I have studied your web site. My suggestion for you is to create your material in my language of Urdu and Punjabi. For that purpose, I as a translator will bring your material into Urdu languages and into Punjabi language as well. Many times it becomes difficult for us to keep doing this because of being minorities and because of the lack of the financial resources. I will wait for your response.

    Sincerely,
    Nasir Aslam ( Pakistan ).

  2. Peace to you,

    We are pleased to introduce “Biblical Educational Ministry of Pakistan” This ministry is headed by Evangelist Dr. Razia Yaqoob. Her ministry is registered and approved by the government of Pakistan under Reg. # RJSC/Fsd/53 and a Church named S&Y Prayer House who are serving the Lord in the poor Muslim country Pakistan. We are not affiliated with any organization or Church, mean we are working on self-supporting basis.
    For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
    Its honor for our ministry that you join us for revival of Pakistan, and we hope our people will also be blessed from our fellowship.
    Bible Says:
    “And now I have heard the groanings of the people of Israel, in slavery now to the Egyptians, and I remember my promise.” (Exodus 6:5)
    Praise the Lord! that we are serving the same Lord of Israel and we believe that He will also save our people. Its very easy for you to minister, because this is not a new thing for you to ministering the people.
    Bible says:
    “Because people who are well don’t need a doctor! Its the sick people who do!” Was Jesus’ reply.” (Matthew 9:12)
    Moses & Jonah don’t want to go there, but our mighty Lord uses them to serve His kingdom.

    Our Boss (Lord) is same, but only difference is that you are serving Him there and we are serving Him in Pakistan. Where Christian being a poor community has to face lot of difficulties, majority of Christian men are addicted or jobless and their wives are compel to work in Muslims houses to earn something for their children due to un skillness they work as a housemaid. Unfortunately their pay is not sufficient to meet their needs but most of them become victim of Muslims sexuality some time they lost their life by denying to do so.
    As other third world countries mostly people are poor, so firstly they want to fulfill their daily needs and then they are ready to hear the word of God. In Pakistan 60% of the population is jobless. Many of the younger generation are unemployment due to a lack of skills and they easily become involved with bad people. They are compel to do so because they don’t have enough sources and facilities to get good skill or high tech for better job to make their future bright. This is militating on their future. Consequently they are adopting evil ways. That’s the reason our people produces and helps the terrorists.
    Revival Crusades and Seminars are one of the best and effective way to teach the people. We can easily teach Christians among Muslims in these types of meetings.
    Now who have burden to teach & preach in the depressed & needy people?
    If you are able to help our people in anyway please do not hesitate to sown a seed and do it for the work of God and join us for revival in Pakistan.
    If you are unable to come than how you can help us?
    • Through Prayer Support.
    • Send your friends for Revival Crusades & Seminars
    • Through Financial & Moral support
    • Through religious materials or other things as you like.
    We can’t give you any reward for your help, we can only pray for you, but we believe that our Lord will give you reward from the doors of haven.
    God blesses you, empower you, strengthen you and encourage you with Holy Spirit so that you may help the needy people more effectively.
    Thanks and God bless you all,

Write me and tell me all that you’ve been doing the past few years! I’m sure it’s been a lot. Check out grammyspeaks.wordpress.com and see the newest love of my life, Hezekiah, Jamie’s son.

  7. What can I say….after all these years you are still BEAUTIFUL! You’re smile can fill a room. Thank you for all the wonderful things you taught me while at UD. I still remember how you would stop rehearsal at the drop off a hat if our praise was ragged and you would lead us in prayer immediately. :). I sure do miss hearing you sing. I search the website from time to time just to hear your voice. Tell your hubby and children I said hello. i can’t believe they are adults either.
