Church of Pakistan Moderator Bishop Azariah Speaks at general Convention

Bishop Samuel Azariah of the Church of Pakistan addressed General Convention’s legislative committee on world mission June 26. He spoke about the persecuted Christian population in Pakistan, one of the world’s most troubling epicenters for terrorism where minorities are targeted by religious extremists for having different beliefs or affiliations. Yet the Christian community – 1.5 percent of 180 million people – remains steadfast in faith despite the daily persecution they face, he said.
