Greetings from Pakistan and the
Little Hearts of Faith Learning Center

Our Foreign Outreach
helps baby Iscah.

Prayers answered!
Iscah says, “Mama” for the first time!

Little Iscah (eesh-a-cah) was born in Pakistan in August 2020. She was born with a heart defect that cannot be repaired. Our Foreign Ministries has been able to provide much needed medications, a nebulizer, and an air conditioner for her room. The temperatures in Pakistan reached 108 degrees in the summer, making breathing very difficult for her.

Find out how you can help this little girl by contacting
Deacon Michael Russo at
or 814-288-3036.

Please keep Iscah and her family in your prayers.
