Another one bites the dust

A Swedish missionary and charity worker in Lahore, Pakistan was shot on December 3, 2012.  Sister Birgeeta Almeby, age 70,  was attacked outside her residence and rushed to the Jinnan hospital. Almeby had lived and worked in Pakistan for nearly forty years, doing outreach and literacy work with “the least of these” in God’s name. Pakistan, Mali, Nigeria, Egypt, Libya, and Sudan, to name a few, are extremely dangerous places for Christians. Muslims often take “justice” into their own hands, following the commands of their faith to eradicate unbelievers. In Pakistan, like Iran and many others, it’s not even against the law to discriminate against Christians and other minorities. In fact,  the apartheid and ethnic cleansing practices ARE the law.
