Elsewhere, despite the recent violence in Nigeria the Gospel is still being shared. Last week’s riots in Kaduna, sparked by Islamic leaders calling for implemention of Islamic law, left some 200 people dead. David Jacobs with Evangelical Baptist Mission says while Christians are in the minority, God remains faithful. “We’ve always found wherever there are persecutions, to Christians, God always uses as a means of propagating. Persecution of Christians has enhanced more. We found that a couple of Muslims have turned out and accepted Christ as their Savior.” Jacobs says one of those is the son of the Head of the Islamic states. A number of attempts have been made on his life, but God has protected him. Jacobs says pray for the faith of Christians to remain strong in the face of persecution. Also pray for President Olusegun Obasanjo, who is a believer and must deal justly with both Christians and Muslims.
