DCI partner Pastor Sarwar Masih, Lahore, Pakistan says that last week a mob armed with heavy weapons entered the worship service and beat the entire congregation, seriously injuring escaping women and children, then using a bulldozer and a heavy crane they demolished the whole church building and destroyed Bibles, musical instruments, the sound system, everything. We called the police but they did not come or investigate, and will not protect us from ongoing death threats. Local government officials show no concern. The land and building is legally ours and there was no warning. Our lives are in danger, please pray for us and pass on our need for legal assistance and help.

Les Norman, the editor and founder of DCI says the West is sending millions of pounds of aid to Pakistan and there is no way that this latest injustice and indifference should go without protest.  It may even be that our taxes are paying the wages of the Police to do nothing. Can we do anything to help ? You can pray, you can tell your press, radio and TV, you can help to pay £870 owed by poor people for medical attention and you can protest to your government's Foreign Ministry and to the Pakistan High Commission in your capital city as we have.

DCI has never been a fund-raising organisation nor do we make appeals, send out magazines or ask for offerings, rather we are a gathering point for people who feel called to giving for the benefit of the last, the lost and the least of the world. As Pastor Oswald Smith famously said in the 1930's, "If you can't go yourself, then for God's sake, send someone else."


Les Norman 61, is a journalist, writer, speaker and a manager for the DCI Fund, focussing on the lost, the last and the least of the world. Since 1977 he has been following the call of Christ. He is married to Pilar with three grown up children.
