Pastors Targeted in Fulani Attacks.

Recommended Posts

 

Sep. 13, 2018 | Nigeria

Fulani herdsmen continue their attacks against Christians in northern Nigeria, specifically targeting pastors. Pastor Silas was talking with a church security guard after choir practice when Fulani Muslims attacked, killing the pastor and wounding the guard. “Silas was the target because he was a pastor,” a VOM worker said. In a separate incident, Fulani raiders killed the Rev. Vincent Damina as he fled an attack on his church. And in still another attack, Pastor Jacob Magit’s wife and six of his church members were killed in an attack on his church. He is now the sole caretaker for his children as well as the children of the other church members who were killed. As a result of ceaseless attacks throughout the year, about 7,500 people are now living in area camps for internally displaced people. Pray for those who have lost family members or been injured in these attacks. Pray also for the workers who are providing aid.

Thanks for sharing this. VOM stands for Voice of the Martyrs? These brothers and sisters are experiencing persecution the likes of which we have never known. It is truly humbling. The least we can do is pray for these faithful servants of Christ.

Some Fulani (former Muslims) are coming to Christ per reports from a native ministry.   I guess this is upsetting the others.

Joining in prayer with you all.

Yes, VOM stands for Voice of the Martyrs. I believe originally started by Richard Wurmbrand and his wife Sabrina. I had the privilege of meeting them back around 1981. He has his testimony in his book Tortured for Christ, the brutality he suffered in a Soviet prison for years.

I believe the way it works is Muslims come to Christ...satan stirs up those who are still his to persecute the Christians..
