Islamists Displace Thousands

[272] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Displaced Christians.

Islamic insurgents seek to establish a caliphate in East Africa, rendering life in the northern coastal regions impossible and severely affecting Christians. Islamists have been active in the region for the past three years, but a group has now launched attacks on villages from the north, displacing thousands into other parts of the country. Many are affected by the insurgents, but the situation for the Christians who encounter them is especially dire. VOM partners report beheadings and incinerated churches; schools, clinics and police stations have also been destroyed. As VOM partners provide comfort to believers, they are also providing food aid and Bibles to the displaced, giving them opportunity to hope in Jesus. Pray that many will gain hope and eternal life through this experience, and pray that the violence stops.
