Generations Of Blasphemers: A Christian Family's Struggle To Endure Persecution In Pakistan
A Pakistani family, from father to two sons, have been followed by blasphemy accusations over a course of 13-years. In 2000, the father refused to convert resulting in the forced conversion of his family. Regardless of going into hiding, extremists found the eldest son, kidnapped and tortured him into converting, and now the family awaits the trial of the youngest son, who was accused of sending blasphemous texts.

  • Pray for this family that they will be renewed in strength and healing 
  • Pray the youngest son will not suffer or be harmed while incarcerated 
  • Pray for all Christians in Pakistan that their government will rise above intolerance
