Family of Martyred Christian Grateful for Ongoing Support

[197] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Rahib's family.

A couple whose only son was killed in a shooting two years ago is surviving economic losses amid the pandemic with assistance from VOM. In April 2018, 16-year-old Rahib Khalid was leaving a church service in Quetta, Pakistan, when four men on motorbikes sprayed the area with gunfire, killing Rahib and another Christian. His parents and three sisters struggled to support themselves without the income Rahib had contributed, so VOM has been providing monthly support. Rahib’s father is in poor health and has not been able to see a doctor during the coronavirus lockdown. “Due to the lockdown, all people are facing crises,” Rahib’s mother said. “I feel blessed and lucky because you people are with us.” Pray for Rahib’s family and for all Pakistani Christians, whose difficult lives have been further complicated by the pandemic.

  • How the family must miss Rahib, not just for the income he brings in, but also for the love he gave to them. Support this family that has no income and especially during this lockdown. In their dire need, never forsake them or leave them destitute and in shame. Provide for them that they will know you are their Provider and Sustainer in life.
