Violence Against Christians

As we had 18 participants from Nigeria take part in the BWS, the Islamic attacks against Christians in Jos, Platau state, gripped our attention and prayers during the course. Upon returning to their homes, some of the GCC participants, who live in Jos, sent us photographs and reports on the hundreds of people killed and many churches destroyed during the wave of violence against Christians. Reportedly 40,000 people were displaced and lost their homes.
