In many of the countries we have chosen to work in, we realize that the circumstancesBangladesh Khulna omgeving Khulna hospitaal ziekenhuisje css woord en daad 27-09-2014 foto: Jaco Klamer in which we are able to proclaim the Gospel are getting harder and often more dangerous. In Pakistan, Islam is getting stronger and stronger and the blasphemy law is a real danger for Christians.

Currently it is not possible to broadcast on a national channel, but films are being projected in villages in the remote areas of the countryside.

Many Christians in South Asia are vary poor and not able to write. There is currently an illiteracy rate of 52% and a lot of poverty. There is also very little knowledge about the Bible, a handicap for the local Christians to share the Gospel with others.

Film showings and television programs provide an excellent way to reach individuals from all segments of the Pakistani society.
