Pray for the Family of Pastor Joseph Kura, Who Was Killed Recently

[240] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Family of Pastor Joseph Kura.

On June 30, the mutilated body of Pastor Joseph Kura, of Evangelical Church Winning All in Obi, Nasarawa, was found at his farm. Local Christians suspect that the attackers were Fulani herdsmen hired by a Muslim farmer who disputed the ownership of Kura’s farm. Arguments over land and livestock often result in violence against Christians in Nigeria’s Middle Belt region. Recently, Fulani herdsmen armed with military-grade weapons have attacked predominantly Christian areas, killing hundreds and forcing thousands from their homes. Please pray for Pastor Kura’s wife and seven children.
