Christian families attacked in Pakistan

( - A Pakistani pastor, Mubarak Masih, was brutally attacked in Samundri by 12 heavily armed Muslim men after his 13-year-old nephew, Shaid Masih, refused to read verses from the Qur'an at school.

The Muslims beat Pastor Mubarak on his head with sticks and rods. They also shot at and nearly killed his brother and broke his mother's left arm. Shaid's teacher, Zufair Gujhar, is allegedly a hard-line Muslim who routinely pressures his Christian students to accept Islam and forces them to read the Qur'an and other Islamic books. Pastor Mubarak has said, "We will continue our mission work at any cost and no one can stop us."

On June 3, Mumtaz Masih, pastor of the Full Gospel Church in Pakistan, and his pregnant wife, Noreen, were attacked in Sahiwal by Muslims who accused them of evangelizing. Fourteen Muslims assaulted the couple, injuring Pastor Mumtaz's legs and Noreen's hands and belly. The pastor's younger brother was ambushed when he went to get medical help. The believers have complained to the police, but no action had been taken against the perpetrators at last report. (Source: International Christian Concern)

Pray for healing for those injured in these attacks. Pray that they will exemplify the love of God through consistent love and prayer for those who persecute them (Matthew 5:43-48). Pray that Christians in Pakistan will not be fearful, but will boldly live out their faith in Jesus.
