Evangelism Team Opposed, Threatened with Violence

[173] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Evangelism team.

An evangelism team based in Peshawar, Pakistan, conducted outreach into many cities in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region in the summer of 2022. Some of the materials distributed during the outreach efforts were discovered by Islamic religious leaders, and an ulama, a meeting of Islamic religious legal scholars, convened to organize against the evangelism. Since the outreach efforts, the members of the evangelism team have all received threatening calls. They were then dispersed to other areas for their safety after hearing that the police were searching for them. This team asks for prayers that the evil plans against God’s people would be changed, and that those who received the evangelism materials — even the Islamic scholars who reviewed it — would trust in Christ in the process.
