Sharing in the Sufferings

“If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you” - Jesus (John 15:20).

My heart hurts today for unknown brothers and sisters who have been the victims of a brutal assault. Today militants stormed the offices of World Vision, a U.S.-based Christian NGO, in Pakistan’s Mansehra district. The office is located in the North-West Frontier Province approximately 40 miles north of Islamabad.

Militants opened fire and threw grenades in an attack that killed at least six people and injured at least seven others.
