INTERSERVE DAY 2014

Interserve Day 2014 was a great success!


This key annual event, held 10 May 2014, was a great day, with dynamic and relevant guest speakers including a number of our Kiwi Partners and On Trackers (short-termers). Updates were provided on Interserve in New Zealand and worldwide, and how God is moving with us; we heard about and prayed for countries where hardplace mission happens, and enjoyed great food and great fellowship. 
 

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Our keynote speakers were Paul and Pat Stock, Interserve Partners from the US who serve in Pakistan.
Paul was born and raised in Pakistan, the son of Presbyterian missionaries; Pat grew up in the American South and became involved in relief and refugee work after finishing university. Paul and Pat joined Interserve in 1991, and have raised their four children in Pakistan. They work with the Church of Pakistan to evangelize and disciple Hindu tribal peoples (who are considered “untouchables” by the Muslims and caste Hindus) in the southern province of Sindh. The Stocks work with a team to develop Christian resources that are culturally relevant to the tribal peoples, such as Bible study materials, health primers, and DVDs and CDs of songs in the various tribal languages (available to view on YouTube). They also have an evangelistic team doing outreach to Hindu villages using indigenous music, dance, and drama.

"Paul and Pat are an amazing couple serving amongst the Hindu tribals through ethnomusicology and contextualised discipleship/leadership training.  I went to see them last February, and will never forget sitting into the early hours of the morning huddled amongst a multitude of tribal men in a little makeshift village square at a funeral wake. All these Hindu minstrels and holy men were asked to sing and perform in honour of the dead leader. About 2am they invited Paul up, and - with a small band of his ‘devotees’ - he sang, totally tribal style, explaining the gospel. The respect and welcome that they were given was beautiful to see... truly the aroma of Christ." 
Johannes Balzer, National Director, Interserve NZ
