PBCI Describes attack in Peshawar

Greetings from Pakistan Bible Correspondence Institute, National Office, Faisalabad.
We are passing this sad news with tears and heavy heart that on 22nd September two suicide attackers blew themselves up outside All Saints Church Peshawar. Peshawar is the capital city of the northern province of Pakistan, Khyber Pakhtoon Khaw.  This incident took place when people were greetings each other after the Sunday Service, in Church Lawn.
Our Peshawer Center’s staff told us that more than 150 people have left this world to be with the Lord while about 100 people are injured lying in hospital.
The explosion left the shreds of human flesh and bloodstains on the walls and floor of the church, whose windows had been ripped out by the blast.
Pages of a Bible were scattered near the altar and rice meals mingled with dust on the floor amid shattered benches. Walls were gouged with ball bearings used in the explosives.
Grieving relatives blocked the main Grand Trunk Road highway with bodies of the victims to protest against the killings.
Further, Christians in Karachi, Lahore, Multan and other cities also are staging protest rallies to condemn the attacks and demand state protection for their lives and properties. Christian Schools and other institutions all over the Pakistan have announced to be closed for three days  for observing the mourning over this sad incident.
Please visit the following link to see the pictures of incident.

Further please keep all of us Pakistani in your prayers. God bless you.
Yours’ in Him,
Rufan R. William
