Islamists Murder Two Church Leaders

[224] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Families of Lankoande Babribile and Tindano Omar.

In mid-February, Islamic extremists murdered two church leaders in eastern Burkina Faso, announcing to the community that they will not tolerate Christianity in the area. On Feb. 10, the extremists arrived at the home of well-known church leader Lankoande Babribile and shot him to death in front of his wife. Lankoande, who served in the village of Sebba near the border with Niger, was known for his Christian witness in the community, especially among the nomadic Fulani people. He is survived by his wife and nine children. Using a vehicle stolen from Lankoande, the terrorists went to the home of Pastor Tindano Omar on Feb. 13 and killed him and other members of his family. Pray for the comfort of surviving family members, and thank the Lord for the witness of His saints.
