Continue to Pray for Pastor Sylvain

[206] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Pastor Sylvain.

When the leader of the Seleka Muslim rebel coalition resigned from power in January 2014 at the height of the civil war, riots broke out across the capital city of Bangui. During the riots, which included violent attacks on Christians, a Muslim mob destroyed Pastor Sylvain Boynguiza’s home and church, located just 650 feet from the city’s central mosque. Worshipers fled the church that Sunday morning as they began to hear gunfire in their neighborhood, and many were shot as they tried to escape the attack. The rebels set fire to the church and destroyed the homes of many Christians, including that of Pastor Sylvain. Pray that Pastor Sylvain and his congregation will be peacemakers in their community.
