Help the homeless.

WARC--A letter written by a church leader in the early hours of July 31 called for prayers and support for Christian families under attack in eastern Pakistan.

The appeal, purportedly spurred by live coverage of the burning of Christian homes, called on fellow Christians to "prepare immediate help for the afflicted" by praying for the victims and providing necessities such as food and clothing.

The letter was released by the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, but the author's name was withheld for security reasons.
