In answer to the prayers of many Christians globally, on October 31st Pakistan’s Supreme Court acquitted 51-year-old Asia Bibi of the alleged charge of blaspheming the prophet Muhammad and commuted the subsequent death penalty to which she was sentenced in 2010. Asia has spent a total of nine years in solitary confinement. However, she still awaits release from prison because of the thousands protesting in the streets. Even her lawyer has gone into hiding due to threats on his life. Please pray for the protection of Asia and her family and that they would be able to leave Pakistan safely for asylum in another country.  Read our previous update here.
