  • It is sad to see the missionaries attacked and persecuted in such a manner. We pray for their safety and that no harm will come from this. We also pray for the perpetrator that justice maybe served in the correct manner. “Wo unto them who offend His chosen servants.”

  • It’s tragic to hear of events like these, but we are praying as you are that these dear missionaries can be made whole after this.
