I received an e-mail from Father Samson Joseph Shahzad of Holy Spirit RC Church, Sangla Hill, Pakistan this morning (Sunday 19 August).
On 12 November 2005 there were riots in the town that targetted Christians and destroyed churches, schools and houses.The mob had been incensed over a false claim that a Christian had defiled the Q'ran by burning it.Since then Christians in some country areas have felt very vulnerable and frightened and Father Shahzad
asks for your prayers for them all and for the Christians in Sangla Hill in particular.In case you have not heard of the events in 2005 please click on the following link: http://www.franciscansinternational.org/news/article.php?id=928
