|Emergency in Nigeria
Refugees and staff members of a ministry in Nigeria assisted by Christian Aid Mission in Mubi, Adamawa state are in danger following a takeover of the city by terrorists from the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram. The group has killed scores of people since it attacked on Wednesday (Oct. 29); traumatized people are flooding the ministry’s relief camp, and some of its missionaries and field staff members are missing.
“Our missionaries went looking for our own people among hundreds of thousands in the bush,” said the ministry director. “Apart from our own camp being now full with our people, we are still missing many.”
Please pray for the safety of the ministry workers, including the director, as they take on the challenge of caring for traumatized people while gunfire continues throughout the city. “This is a great emergency for us, taking care of hundreds of children and their traumatized parents,” the director said. “The trauma is unimaginable. People are in great turmoil and pain and hunger. We ask you to arise and pray for Adamawa right now and help us out of these unprecedented woes.”
