Open Doors commented on the video:
The opening shot really got to me; fellow Christians in Pakistan who attend church just as we do here. However, they are at risk by attending and the church member they are praying for is about to die for her faith. Could you imagine going to church in that area? How would that change things for you?
The other part that really got to me was when they interviewed her husband. Not only does he have to deal with the fact that he could lose his wife, he and his children have to live in hiding because they are receiving death threats. Could you imagine being one of her children? Trying to understand why your mother is in jail and why she may die?
The whole situation is so saddening. It is very important to pray for this family and to advocate on their behalf. Knowing we serve a God who can do anything, we pray that He will intervene on behalf of this family.
