Pray for Christians Risking Their Lives to Share God's Word

[268] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Pakistani Christians.

On April 17, gunmen attacked a group of Christian workers who were on their way to distribute VOM-sponsored Bibles. Although the attackers beat one team member and threatened to shoot their driver, all of the workers survived the attack and were able to complete the Bible distributions. The team of workers visited 11 churches in remote villages and towns, distributing Bibles and study guides to more than 700 people. Many Christians cried with joy as they received copies of God’s Word for the first time. In addition to distributing Bibles, one worker shared his testimony and many people came to faith in Christ. Please pray for the Christian workers and those who received the Bibles.
