Muslims Murder Christian Kids In Pakistan

In Pakistan last september, the kids of an underground missionary couple were murdered by Muslims.

Sharon and Shalom

Sharon and Shalom

Shalom was murdered outright; Sharon was raped, a breast cutoff, and then murdered. Both kids were burned …

At Any Cost Jesus—15 year old son and 14 year old daughter of an underground missionary couple of the At Anycost Jesus Mission were brutaly murdered and dead bodies were burnt by the unidentified militants in one of the northern districts of Pakistan on 1st of September, 2006. Shalom was the boy and Sharon was the girl, who were secondary school students. Habel, another underground missionary of the At Anycost Jesus Mission said this news from a hidden place.

Police and military forces are supportive to the militants. Habel and family was also attacked and their house was burnt. But Lord has enabled them to escape to a hidden place.

They demolished a church and some houses were set on fire too.

Shalom and Sharon were kidnapped alongwith their missionary parents and two other younger sisters 10 days before the murder. Militants asked them to convert towards Islam and work against christians and christinaity. They refused. So militants killed Shalom first. Then they raped the girl and cut one of her breasts In front of the parents. She too died. Habel said.

The militants left the dead bodies in a ditch alongwith a motorbyke, poured the petrol and burnt. The police declared a false statement that it was an accident and the petrol tank of the byke was opened while they were fallen into the ditch and burnt by a spark.

Believers are under the great trouble and fear. They are forcely over controlled by the militants. Not alloweded to pray or not even to speak a single word about Christ or Christianity or Christians. Habel said.

Related with the same subject, tribal people and their leaders also being murdered in the Neelum Valley.

At Anycost Jesus Mission is an underground evangelism ministry for the evangelisation of Muslim nations.

How can Muslims do this? When Abeer Hamza was brutally murdered in Iraq, I mourned for her; her death was so senseless. I wish to God Muslims could mourn for Shalom and Sharon with me; I wish to God … Muslims, why do you kill those that only want to love you?

Some time ago, Chris Tomlin wrote a beautiful song, “We Fall Down.” I’d like to share the lyrics of that precious song with you:

We fall down
We lay our crowns
At the feet of Jesus

The greatness of
Mercy and love
At the feet of Jesus

We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
Is the lamb

We fall down
We lay our crowns
At the feet of Jesus

The greatness of
Mercy and love
At the feet of Jesus

We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
Is the lamb

We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
Is the lamb

My Jesus, I love you
I know thou are mine
To thee all the follies of sin I resent
My gracious redeemer
My savior, art thou
If ever I’ll love you
My Jesus tis now

With tears filling my eyes, my heart, I can see Shalom and Sharon laying their crowns at the feet of Jesus. God bless you all.
