Christian Community in Pakistan

On Sunday Morning 15 March, suicide bombers attacked two churches in the Youhanabad neighbourhood of Lahore, Pakistan. Youhanabad is one of the largest Christian communities in the country, and most of its inhabitants are very poor. Although the combined in the congregations numbered about 2,000, only 19-20 people died because the church member volunteers on security duty had stoped both bombers from entering inside the buildings. Pray for healing for the injured (at least 80 people) and consolation for the bereaved. Thank God for the courage of the Christians who prevented the bombers from doing worse damage, some at the cost of their own lives.
