Hundreds of Pakistani Christians gathered in the city of Lahore to pray for a wounded Christian missionary, CBN News reports. Bargetta Emmi, a Swedish national and director of the Full Gospel Assemblies in Pakistan, is fighting for her life after being shot in the neck by a gunman on a motorcycle in front of her Lahore home earlier this week. The shooter escaped and no one has yet claimed responsibility or stated a motive for the attack. Emmi, who is in her 70s, has worked in the Muslim country for nearly 40 years.
