images3.jpgAs many of us enjoy Christmas Eve and prepared to celebrate the holidays with family, please keep in mind to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Pakistan. Several demonstrations are scheduled this week over proposed changes to the nation’s blasphemy law. This law has been recently utilized to sentence Asia Bibi, a 45-year old mother, to the death penalty for her Christian beliefs. 

Please pray for religious freedom in Pakistan, Christians living there, and peace during these upcoming demonstrations. 
If you’re looking for a place to give to help in this area, please consider the Children’s Rescue Mission, a non-profit rescuing Pakistan’s children from poverty, homelessness, and slavery.
