Terrible News from Gaza

Monday, 8 October 2007

Today we heard some terrible news from Gaza. The manager of the Palestinian Bible Society in Gaza was kidnapped and murdered. He was 30 years old and left 2 children and a pregnant wife behind. For those of you who didn't know, we were in Gaza two and a half years ago on an outreach. We met this man, Rami, and worked closely together with the Bible Society and the Baptist church, of which he was a member. It's quite a shock for the other believers in Gaza, and a frightening situation. Please stand with us to pray for Rami's wife Pauline and family, and for the Bible Society and the Christian believers in Gaza. They are experiencing increased persecution, in addition to the already difficult conditions in Gaza.

If you want to read more about it, here are a couple of links:

  1. That's horrible Noni! I will stand with you in prayer for the immediate family and the extended church family in Gaza. God be with them in their time of grief and confusion. Hold your little ones in your arms and keep them close. Let them have a full understanding of your love for them and for Rami. In your mighty name Lord Jesus I pray, Amen. Katie.
