“Whatever you did for one of the least of these…
you did for Me.”
Thousands of Christians are currently enslaved in the brick kilns of South Asia.
You have the power of redemption and the opportunity to love.
Help us to set the captives free.
When you can't afford to pay the medical costs of a loved one, what do you do?
In Pakistan, the poorest people take a loan from the brick-kiln owners and sign a contract to pay off the loan by working at the kiln. Quickly they find that they are unable to earn enough to cover their expenses and loan-interest. So they remain trapped, working 14 hours a day, seven days a week for the rest of their lives. Find out more about bonded-labor slavery.

Children of enslaved families rarely have access to education. The Freeslaves project runs seven schools in four towns and villages, educating enslaved and very poor children. There is no shortage of need, and it is an incredible gift for parents in slavery to see their children educated and given the hope of a future.
Want to help? The children at our schools would love your support! Please consider becoming a monthly donor for our schools.

Financial security is key to building a future and enabling families to stay out of slavery. Before we redeem a family, the Freeslaves team works with the families to find jobs and often we give them a grant to start their own business.
We have created or placed people in work in many different areas, including sewing and textiles, chicken-farming, vegetable selling, transportation, labouring, factories, industry, and market gardening.

Enslaved through tragedy. Redeemed by love.

In Pakistan, the vast majority of those in bonded-labor slavery are Christian. When the poorest Christians have a medical emergency, they sell everything they have and when it’s not enough, they sell themselves. They take a loan from the brick-makers and agree to work at the kilns until the debt is paid. But interest and exploitation makes sure the debt is never paid. Whole families are then enslaved for generations. And the majority of these slaves are children. View the video to see what life is like for Christians trapped in slavery.
We began Freeslaves.org after a time of worship. Late one night, I was worshiping Jesus. I stilled my heart and simply said: “Lord, I just want to be like Mary and wash your feet.” I did not expect a response, but He spoke clearly.
“If you want to wash my feet, then for you, the people of Pakistan are my feet.”
So we began. We now worship Jesus by ministering to some of the poorest Christians in the world. These are people who are enslaved, exploited, abused and killed. These are people that Jesus loves with a passion. We redeem families from slavery, give them work and accommodation, and we run schools to educate their children. We run discipleship groups to bring people into the reality of God’s design for their lives: one of wholehearted love for God and love for one another. This is our worship and I would love you to join us.

Calling for Freedom Heroes
If you Love the Bible…We have a gift for you!
The Discovery Bible, worth $499 is our FREE gift
to our Freedom Hero monthly donors!
Discover the Original Emphasis in Scripture
Few people know that the original Scriptures texts contain emphasis. In both Greek and Hebrew, words are put to the front of the sentence to give them focus. For example:
In this passage, the emphasis is on loved, only begotten Son, and eternal. You’ll also notice a squiggle and a check mark. These represent Greek verb tenses. The squiggle means present tense: an ongoing, continual or habitual action or reality, in the present time. So God gave His Son, not just that we would have life in heaven in the future, but that we would have eternal life, right here and now, in our present time.
Discover the Meaning of Greek and Hebrew Words
If you have looked at the Greek and Hebrew word lexicon on Biblehub, you will have seen the HELPS WORD Studies. In John 3:16 above, if we click in (whoever believes in Him), we find the following HELPS Word study:
1519 eis (a preposition) – properly, into (unto) – literally, “motion into which” implying penetration (“unto,” “union”) to a particular purpose or result.
Now, you can read the emphasis in Scripture and appreciate the color that the verb tenses bring to a text without having to learn Hebrew and Greek! WIll you be an expert? No. Will you fall more in love with the Word of God? Almost certainly! Like us, we are sure you will find a new richness, beauty and joy in the word of God through the Discovery Bible.
