In August 2018, Gyang Adamu (27) lost his father, mother and three brothers when Fulani herdsmen attacked his village in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria and killed them.

Away at university in Jos, where he studies civil engineering, Gyang was unaware at first about what had happened. He read on Facebook about an attack that had taken place in which a pastor and his entire family was killed. Realising this could be his family, Gyang tried phoning them to no avail. He then phoned their assistant pastor and his worst fears were confirmed.

“My father and two of my brothers were burnt alive in the room where they hid. My mother was gunned down in the bathroom where she hid. My third brother was macheted on the farm… I couldn’t sleep, or cry or utter a single word. I was full of shock.”

Your words of comfort could mean so much to Gyang as he struggles to cope with this great loss. Pray for the Lord’s comfort and healing for Gyang as he continues to mourn the loss of his family.
