At 4pm, Tuesday, 1st February, BACA’s team visited Peshawar to attend a memorial service also held at All Saints Church.
Pastor Patrick told us that Pastor William was a faithful servant of the Lord, who remained faithful till his death. He believes that Pastor William is among the souls under the alter of the Lord mentioned in Revelation chapter six. Pastor William, said:
“We have no enmity with anyone.
“The Church has been persecuted for ages.
The persecution of the people of the Lord is not new”
Our officers then met with Adan William ( 33 yrs) the son of Pastor William. They prayed with Adan and heard some wonderful accounts of the wonderful things Pastor William had done in his life. Adan said:
“It’s the Lord’s will which has been done.
“All Saints Church was attacked by terrorists in 2013 in which my sister Shumila Robin lost her husband.
“Our family has suffered a lot to extremists but we have no enmity with anyone”
BACA offered to cover the cost of the funeral which Adan politely declined saying:
“You have come share our pain and show us your love.
“It’s enough for us”
