Most of the population is Christian, but Islamic extremist groups and corruption make life difficult. Christian homes and churches continue to be attacked, leaving thousands of Christian families homeless, unemployed and forced to live in camps. New Christians, from a Muslim background, are often ostracised or beaten by their family and neighbours to force them to deny Jesus.

Pray: For comfort and healing for those who have been rejected and hurt because of their faith in Jesus.
