Pakistani Christian woman faces court hearing

470-NSJ-062 copy Asia Bibi (38), a woman arrested for blasphemy in Pakistan's Punjab province in June 2009 after she and several Muslim women had a heated discussion about Islam (click here for the story), faced another court hearing on June 22, 2010. Once again, her accusers were not present in the court. Sources are hopeful that the negligence of the witnesses will make a positive impact on Asia’s case.

Asia faces another court hearing today – Tuesday, June 29. Please join together with your friends and family and pray for this sister in Christ. Pray that the charges of blasphemy will be dropped. Pray that she will be reunited with her husband and daughters. Pray that Asia will continue to look to the Lord for her strength during this difficult time.

Please also consider sending a letter of encouragement to Asia. When writing, please do not mention The Voice of the Martyrs or criticize the government of Pakistan.

You can write Asia today at:

Asia Bibi
District Jail
Sheikhupura
Punjab
Pakistan
