Christians Targeted
Muslim Jihadists continue to attack Christians in Northern Nigeria. Rev. Dachollom Datiri of The Church of Christ in Nigeria has reported that over 100 members of the Church of Christ were killed by Muslim assailants in 12 villages: Dogo, Kakkuruk, Kuzen, Kai, Kura Falls, Maseh, Negon, Ninchah, Pwabiduk, Ngyo and Ruk in Plateau state.

Islamic Jihad

The attackers were identified as Fulani tribesmen. The Fulani tribe are overwhelmingly Muslim. Most of the victims of the latest attacks are from the Birom tribe which is mostly Christian. Many of the farmers report that their crops have been burned.

Burned to Death
In Maseh, Christians who had fled their homes found sanctuary in a church building. This building was burned down by Muslim Fulani with 50 Christians killed in the blaze. The Islamicist Terrorist Organisation, Boko Haram, has declared that they are launching these attacks to "achieve our goal of establishing an Islamic state, a caliphate."

Mission to Nigeria
Please pray for Michael and David involved in a Mission to Nigeria at this time.

"Brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith." 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2
