Praise God! Pakistan’s Lahore High Court acquitted a Christian couple last week that has been on death row for eight years on false blasphemy charges.
A mosque leader accused Shafqat Emmanuel and Shagufta Kausar of sending text messages insulting Islam in 2013. Emmanuel said police tortured him into giving a false confession. Needless to say, the couple’s four children are desperate to see their parents again.
Please pray for the family since Christian Pakistanis, who are acquitted of blasphemy charges, often face persecution and death threats.
The Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 4:8-10, “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed . . . persecuted, but not forsaken . . . always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”
