Twelve states in northern Nigeria enforce sharia (Islamic) law. Here, Christians are pressured not to wear a cross or carry a Bible. Attacks from the Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram, and clashes between Muslim Fulani herdsmen and Christian farmers have left many dead and displaced. Christian homes and churches have also been destroyed.

Pray: That families who have lost everything for their faith are provided for and are again able to earn a living.
