Persecution Update for June 2010: Nigeria

nigeriaNigeria's predominantly Muslim northern sector continues to be a killing field for Christians. In March radical Muslims murdered nearly 500 Christians with machetes, including many women and children. At least three pastors were killed, nearly 100 houses destroyed, and ten church buildings burned. Jotham Kangdim, a Nigerian pastor, said, "I have chosen the way of the cross, therefore wherever it leads me I will go." Pray that God will use the testimony of believers like this to bring many Muslims to saving faith in Christ.
