On Oct. 4 an armed group of suspected Islamist extremists assassinated a man
named Hazim Thomaso Youssif in front of his clothing shop, and Ivan Nuwya was
shot to death in front of his home, located near a mosque in the
Christian-majority neighborhood of Tahrir. Meanwhile on Oct. 6, a disabled
25-year-old shopkeeper was shot and killed in the neighborhood of Karama. Four
other Christians, a pharmacy employee, a disabled man who owns a spare-parts
store, and two day-laborers have also been killed.
Pray for the families of those killed. Pray for peace and comfort for loved ones. Pray for the people who commited the crime, that they would repent and turn to Jesus Christ.
