Urgent Call to Prayer for Church of the Brethren in Nigeria

I don’t know that this blog has much broadcasting power, but particularly after the horrifying events over the last week and a half in northern Nigeria, I want to bring attention to the Mennonite World Conference’s urgent call to prayer for the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria). Here is a link to the letter addressed to the churches.There are ways to hear some of the stories and to let the church in Nigeria know that we are holding their plight in our prayers. As the letter says, “often in situations such as this, it is the sense of loneliness and lack of evident support from others that is most discouraging. Let us bear these burdens together.”
