Friday the 19th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

International Christian Voice Canada strongly condemns attacks on Paris city today; our heart breaks due to the attacks on Paris. There are no words to express the amount of grief the world feels today; these attacks have been an attack on all of humanity. 

It is important for us to stand united now more than ever before against forces of terrorism.

We pray for the strength and comfort for all the families and friends of the victims and for the nation of Paris.

May God be with Paris during this very difficult time.

Sara Sumbal needs your help

Sara’s Story

My name is Sara Sumbal. My family and I are asylum seekers in Bangkok, Thailand. We fled our home in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2013 when we became victims of persecution after my father, a Christian evangelist, was labeled a blasphemer under the Blasphemy Law for evangelising a Muslim man. My father was initially threatened by two Muslim clerics to stop evangelising or they would kill him and his family. They then ordered him to convert to Islam and all would be well. When he refused, they and the male members of the Muslim man’s family beat him unconscious and left him for dead on a garbage heap.

After my father’s recovery, the extremists threatened him again with death because he continued holding prayer meetings. Because we were traumatised and terrified, our family fled form Karachi to a friend’s home in the city of Bahawalpur.
