Prayer Request

Prayer Requests

From Georgene Shalm (Pakistan/Afghanistan): Please pray for the Christians in Pakistan.

I have just had a call from a pastor in Karachi. Yesterday the Taliban surrounded a church in one of the outlying areas of the city where mostly Christians (of all denominations) live, and where we have a UPC pastor and several families.

The Taliban harassed the people and forced many of them to leave their homes. Guns were fired and one child was killed; many, many more were injured. They have asked that our missionary family would especially remember them in prayer, that they would be strong in the face of persecution and that the Lord would protect them.
