Christians in the village of Obiri seek to rebuild their church after it was destroyed in a recent attack. Religious extremists tore down the church walls, ruined a generator and sound equipment and burned 400 Bibles. Attacks against Christians have increased dramatically in this region of Burkina Faso over the past few years, and Bible distribution is difficult amid security risks and literacy issues. Pray that these believers remain steadfast in their faith as they recover from the attack, and pray that God will provide a new place for them to gather together for fellowship and worship. Pray also that their attackers will find faith in Christ.
