NIGERIA — Militants Kill 10 Family Members

It is some time since I shared, on this blog, about the persecuted church.  This is not because I am no longer aware of such persecution, but simply because I do not want to overload readers with information that is so horrific.

However, having just read this story, I feel that I want to share to with as many as possible.  Such reports do take time to get out of the country of origin, which is why they are often dated some weeks previous to the date of publication.

"Islamists (Muslim terrorists) killed 10 members of one family on Feb. 21 in an evening attack near Jos. Five of those killed were children, ranging in age from 9 months to 5 years old. At about 8 p.m., around 40 armed militants entered the home of the Musa family near the entrance of Kogom Village. They broke down the doors of a home shared by four adult siblings and their families, then brutally killed everyone they encountered with machetes and automatic rifles. Two family members in their 20s, Habila Musa, and Regina, the wife of Jacob Musa, were the only survivors of the attack. Regina is deeply traumatized; the militants killed not only her husband but also her three children, ages 9 months old, 3 years old and 5 years old."

If you are a disciple of Jesus, in the relatively free 'west', please do not forget your brothers and sisters in Christ, and their families, who suffer in ways that most of us can barely comprehend.  With Paul, they may truly say, "I bear on my body the marks of Jesus." (Gal 6:17)
