In China, enjoying a Christmas party could mean jail time for the relatives of Communist Party Members.
Christians in the UK and other western nations have been buying bullet-proof vests and sending them to family members in Pakistan especially the young men who will be involved in the volunteer security teams at churches. My wife had to go through the sombre process of buying one and sending it to her brother. Pakistani Christians across the globe will be praying for relatives and phoning, whats-apping and skyping them before and after their celebrations. It will be a stressful time for all but no-one is calling for celebrations or church services to be abandoned.
