Christians Discouraged After Months of Relentless Attacks

Front-line workers report that Christians in Plateau State and Southern Kaduna are battling fear, anger, bitterness and unrest after Muslim Fulani herdsman attacked and killed many in these predominantly Christian areas over the last few months.

Pray that our Nigerian brothers and sisters can show the love of God to the militant Fulani Muslims, and that their persecutors will come to faith in Christ. Pray that God will put an end to the spread of radical Islam in Nigeria.
