I want to share an interesting story from Open Doors today about the ongoing situation in Pakistan regarding religious persecution. I don’t know all of the details, but would encourage readers to pray regarding this situation.

Thanks,

Dillon

Islamic extremists killed a Christian lawyer,
his wife and their five children in northwestern Pakistan for mounting a
legal challenge against a Muslim who was charging a Christian
exorbitant interest.

Police found the bodies of attorney and evangelist Edwin Paul and his
family at their home in Haripur, a small town near Abbotabad in Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa Province (previously known as the North-West Frontier
Province).

The victim and his wife Ruby Paul, along with their five children ages 6 to 17, had been shot to death.

A group of armed men stopped Paul and took him by the collar and said,
“Leave the town in 24 hours we know how to throw out Christians, we
will not allow even a single Christian to live here. We will hang them
all in the streets, so that no Christian would ever dare to enter the
Hazara land.”
