Brazen attacks on Christians in Egypt now include rapes of women in broad daylight

Egypt (MNN) ― The sounds of firing guns and the accompanying shouts and screams have become commonplace background noise for a ministry leader and his wife supported by Christian Aid Mission.

„We just dream of peace and a stable situation, but each day is worse than the day before,” reports the leader. „People die each day in our blood-covered streets. We try to distract our children from the noise of gunshots that constantly ring out.”

Though they, along with their missionary coworkers, have been spared from harm thus far, they live and work with the idea that every day could be their last.

„They want to get rid of us Christians in any way possible. Maybe tomorrow they will burn our home, or kidnap, or attack us.”

Throughout the horror that has unfolded since the election of the Muslim Brotherhood and the new Islamist-backed constitution in December 2012, the ministry leader has provided glimpses into his world, turned completely upside-down.

Brittany Tedesco, Africa Director of Christian Aid, your link to indigenous missions, says attacks against Christians are unprecedented. „They’re very brazen. We’re talking women being raped in broad daylight, men being attacked, or the homes of Christians being ransacked. And really, they have no recourse.”

Tedesco says even the police, who work for the Muslim Brotherhood, are part of the persecution effort against believers. Often it is the victim of an attack who is arrested.

As part of the Islamic regime’s radical control of Egypt, nearly all independent media outlets have been shut down, and concerted efforts are being made to essentially dispose of the judiciary system.

As their country darkens, tens of thousands of Egyptian Christians have fled the nation. Yet the ministry leader and his co-workers are determined to remain, taking every opportunity to share Christ with the hurting and confused masses.

PRAY for the Christians of Egypt!
