Pray for Christians Recovering from Boko Haram Attack

Nigeria

Many Christians in Mubi, Adamawa state, are still recovering from injuries sustained in an Oct. 29, 2014, attack by Boko Haram. Insurgents overpowered security officers at a military barracks before searching houses throughout the village, identifying and killing Christians. Boko Haram also released nearly 100 prisoners, who then helped the militants capture hundreds of Christians that they planned to kill. Most of the believers managed to escape during an attack on the insurgents by the military. However, many Christians were injured by gunfire and bomb fragments during their escape.
