Pakistan: Matriarch

Christian woman in Pakistan praying

Female 58, Pakistan. “Every step we take in this life we have to take care growing up around Muslims. They have kept us off-balance, behind them. They never let us come alongside them. Pray for our coming generation that they can live in peace.”

She is the matriarch of the family, a pillar of strength, giving off confidence and security. When she bows her head in prayer you know that praying is not a ritual for her. It is her source, her foundation.
