Pakistani Brothers and Sisters Attacked
We are told in scripture to “Weep with those that weep,” (Romans 12:15) and to “Bear one another’s burdens” (Galatians 6:1), which includes our brothers and sisters all over the globe. Being a Christian means being a family, and Romans is a book that reminds us that our family includes those from all nations, ethnicity, and race. Recently there have been three different attacks in Punjab, a state where many believers live by radical Muslims (Taliban). The attacks appear to be intensifying due to the fact that the government is too weak to oppose the Taliban influence. The most recent attack came close to our pastors in Faisalabad, and they are now trying to react to help their people recover from the destruction they have experienced. See Washington Post Article.
Also go to Christ The King Church (One of our Acts 29 Churches) web sites to see pictures of the recent destruction. We will be taking a benevolence offering along with many of our Acts 29 churches in order to help alleviate the pain our brothers and sisters are currently experiencing.
Let’s continue to pray for Pakistan and the Muslim conflict, and pray for peace for these people, and that God’s glory would begin to transform the region with the glory of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Pray also that the believers would react in love and not hate (Ala Romans 12:14-21).
