Pastors Targeted in Fulani Attacks

[243] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Pastor Jacob.

Fulani herdsmen continue their attacks against Christians in northern Nigeria, specifically targeting pastors. Pastor Silas was talking with a church security guard after choir practice when Fulani Muslims attacked, killing the pastor and wounding the guard. “Silas was the target because he was a pastor,” a VOM worker said. In a separate incident, Fulani raiders killed the Rev. Vincent Damina as he fled an attack on his church. And in still another attack, Pastor Jacob Magit’s wife and six of his church members were killed in an attack on his church. He is now the sole caretaker for his children as well as the children of the other church members who were killed. As a result of ceaseless attacks throughout the year, about 7,500 people are now living in area camps for internally displaced people. Pray for those who have lost family members or been injured in these attacks. Pray also for the workers who are providing aid.
