Hello! My name is Mugul. I’m from Pakistan.
I was born into a family of Islamic leaders. I kept the law, read the Qur’an diligently, and lived according to its statutes. But I could not find the answers to life within Islam. As a result, I faced many doubts about Islam, and drowned the emptiness in my heart with alcohol.
One day as I was sitting at the park alone, a man approached me. As we talked, he shared about Jesus with me, and I learned he is a Christian. As I listened, I found the answers in Jesus that I was unable to find in Islam.
Jesus, who died for all mankind and rose from the dead, is the perfect God, and the moment I heard his story, peace came upon my empty heart. I had no choice but to admit that the Bible is the truth, and I accepted Jesus. Now, as I read the Bible every day, I am realizing more and more how sinful I had been and how gracious God is.
Praise be to Jesus, who died for my sins and gave me new life. Just as He has been a light to me, I want to be His light to the youth of Pakistan. Please pray for me to live as a witness to all those who are still wandering because they do not know the truth yet!
The Mighty One, God the Lord,
Has spoken and called the earth
From the rising of the sun to its going down.
Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty,
God will shine forth.
(Psalm 50:1-2 NKJV)
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord for coming as a light into Brother Mugul’s empty heart! We thank our Lord for allowing this brother to ponder the Truth and meeting him in his loneliness.
May many young people in Pakistan be as blessed as Brother Mugul and long for the truth. Lord, pour out a longing heart upon them, and grant them the grace to meet You, the light that fulfills their longing!
Use Brother Mughal, so that through his lips, Jesus Christ can be witnessed to many more young people in Pakistan! Even as difficulties come, may Brother Mugul hold onto the faith and rise up with ever greater courage!
Let all who hear the gospel come before the Lord and be established as the church, so that more and more fruit of eternal life can be produced in Pakistan through them!
Lord, please raise up a young generation army in Pakistan who, like Brother Mugul, is determined to live only for You and to testify of the gospel of grace to those who still don’t know You! Amen!
