Willingly Making Sacrifices

[253] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Pastor Silas and fellow pastors.

A VOM-supported pastor whose home was destroyed by Islamists continues to shepherd his congregation despite the risks. Boko Haram militants destroyed Pastor Silas’s home and the homes of several other pastors in northeastern Cameroon. After the militants destroyed his home, Pastor Silas and his family relocated across the border into Cameroon. Silas still returns weekly to minister to his congregation. “Our lives are the Lord’s and we willingly make sacrifices for the sake of Christ, as we have been called,” Silas said. Pray for Silas and other pastors like him living in areas terrorized by Boko Haram. Pray for their ministry to continue among those suffering at the hands of the militant group.
