The Fellowship of His Sufferings in Nigeria
April 18th, 2014 by Frontline Missions
As Christians around the world prepare to celebrate Christ’s resurrection this Sunday, believers in Nigeria have experienced the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings on an unprecedented scale.
The Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram, has dramatically escalated attacks on Christians during Holy Week. On Palm Sunday they massacred 71 believers and wounded 130 in the capital city, and 8 teachers have been murdered this week. Also, this past Monday night insurgents kidnapped 243 girls from an all-girls school, and only about 100 have been recovered.
As we celebrate the joy of our risen Savior, please remember to pray for grace, comfort and deliverance for brothers and sisters in Nigeria during this time of great need.
