Progress Report on the Faris Family

In November 2015, International Christian Voice visited Pakistani Christian refugees in Thailand to survey the severity of their living conditions. During our visit, we met the Faris family and heard their story. Mr. Ayub Faris and his family fled from Pakistan to save their lives after an attempted kidnapping of his 16 year old daughter, Aanya, was made by a local Islamic fundamentalist. Fortunately, she was able to escape, but the perpetrator remained adamant on kidnapping her and forcing the family to convert. In this dire situation, the quickest and easiest option for the family was to flee to Thailand.
