Christian missionaries in Pakistan are reaching out to people in Peshawar in the wake of a devastating attack on a school, which killed several people and injured dozens more.

An explosive was detonated at an Islamic school on Tuesday.

FMI supports indigenous church planters in Muslim-majority countries, and spokesman Nehemiah (not his real name for security) says the organisation has a large impact and footprint in Peshawar.

He’s told Mission Network News, Christians in Pakistan are constantly living in great fear.

Six years ago the Taliban attacked an army school in Peshawar, killing 150 people.

Many Pakistanis questioned Islam after that attack, and Nehemiah says church planters see a similar response today.

He’s asking for prayer that their serving missionaries can introduce a real Prince of Peace to the people in a difficult situation.
