Pasha pulled the heavy knit of her newly gifted sweater down over her torso. The other two women of Pasha’s film team were also bundled in cozy sweaters. Insulated from the winter chill, the women maneuvered the film equipment in a well-rehearsed and orchestrated dance of poles, sheets and electronics in preparation for a movie showing.
The three-woman film team went about the village during the day, encouraging the locals to come to the film show—despite the cold weather—to hear about the love of God poured out for mankind. Pasha and her team knew it would be difficult and the cold would keep people from attending. But she also knew how important her ministry was and how one show could change people’s lives. Wrapped in her new sweater, shielding herself from the biting cold, she pressed on. And prayed.
Changing Seasons, Changing Needs
Going into the remotest places, where many had never heard that God loves them, Pasha and her team of faithful women endured hot, humid summers and especially cold winters. Receiving the gift of warm sweaters to combat the damp evening cold encouraged Pasha. The gift reminded her that she was not alone, that she was cared for and loved, and that people were praying for her.
These gifts allowed Pasha and her team to show the film on even the coldest nights. The villagers do not have to wait another day to hear the message of God’s love for them.
Determination and Winter Clothing Open Doors
Aadarsh, like Pasha, also served on a film team working in a cold climate. Nestled against the base of the Himalayas, the villages where he ministered shut down during the cold months, the residents barely stirring once the sun went down.
