Pakistan is comprised of nearly 180,000,000 people in 389 people groups and six major languages; 374 of Pakistan’s people groups are considered unreached. Pakistan is an Islamic republic. Almost 97% of the entire population is Muslim. Christians are barely 2 percent, and suffer endemic persecution.
Colleagues and workers within our community have served in Pakistan for nearly fifty years, in medical, educational, and agricultural projects.
