A Pakistani Christian man was killed recently when four heavily armed suicide bombers attacked a small Christian colony in Peshawar. As Samuel Masih left for work early on the morning of Sept. 2, he was shot in the leg by one of the attackers. He tried to warn security guards of the attack but was killed before reaching them. Five others were wounded while defending the 25 to 30 Christian families who live in the colony. All four attackers were killed. Please pray for Samuel Masih’s wife and five children. Pray also for the remaining Christians, many of whom fear more attacks by Islamic extremists.
