Islamists Threaten to Kidnap Pastor a Second Time

[158] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Pastor Kidnapped.

Several years ago, a group of militant Fulani Muslims based in Burkina Faso crossed the border into neighboring Togo, raided numerous villages, and kidnapped a pastor. The kidnappers eventually released the pastor, and he moved to a different area. Recently, one member of that Fulani raiding party contacted the pastor with a threatening message: “I know where you are.” The pastor believes the militants plan to abduct him again, and he asks for prayers for his safety.
