And I am very grateful that the Lord has brought us such a highly devoted and skilled Christian leader as Shawn. He will be a great leadership partner to Andrew Hart, CEO of PAK7 International.

“I’m excited to join the PAK7 team. I’m so impressed with the work of our staff and partners in Pakistan – how they are reaching out to their own nation with the love of Christ. God is already writing a wonderful story there and I feel privileged to be a small part of it. I so appreciate your continued prayer and support for PAK7. Please add me to your prayer list!  Shawn Wright, President, PAK7 US
