An entire community of believers is grief-stricken by the murder of Mohammad Yousf Bhat, a Christian convert from Islam who was shot to death at his home in Kashmir.
On 1 July, four gunmen wearing uniforms and masks pushed their way into Yousf’s home before shooting him to death.
Yousf had been involved in sharing Christ with Muslims for more than 15 years and was a key Christian leader in the region. He leaves behind a wife and three children.

- Uphold Yousf’s grieving family to God. May they rest in the knowledge that the Lord walks with them during this difficult time.
- Thank the Lord for the faithfulness of Yousf; pray his many converts will not be frightened or lose heart as a result of his death but be spurred on to continue to love and serve the Lord and make Him known to others.
- Pray for the perpetrators, that they will receive justice in this life and be brought to repentance for the next.
