Akmal and Sarah Erastus
Punjabi Church - Winnipeg Manitoba

Akmal and Sarah were born and raised in Pakistan and immigrated to Canada in 2011. Winnipeg is a city where around 30,000 Punjabi people live. Most of them did not get the opportunity to know Jesus. Akmal and Sarah want to see Punjabi people receive Jesus as their Saviour and worship the Lord in their heart language. After a few years, they felt a strong call from the Lord to witness the Punjabi people. In 2017, the first person accepted Jesus. After one month, seven new people came to accept Jesus and join their fellowship.

The fellowship of believers later turned into a Punjabi church. Praise the Lord! more people came to join the Winnipeg Punjabi Church, and the regular attendance reached around 40 people. The Church members are always excited to join their worship meeting on Sunday. Apart from the opposition of their nuclear family and broader family members, they are continually growing in their faith and walk with the Lord.

Around 30,000 Punjabi people live in Winnipeg. Most of them are first- or second-generation Canadians. They follow the religion of Sikhism. There are 10 Sikh temples in Winnipeg. WPC is the first church to engage and reach out to the Sikh community with the Gospel. Sikh people are open to spiritual conversation and are amiable people.
