Another church attacked in Burkina Faso—two killed

Friends, we have just been alerted to another church attack in northern Burkina Faso. Information is scarce at this point, but our Africa team is reporting that unidentified armed individuals on motorcycles attacked a church during their worship service on Sunday, February 9.

Reportedly, at least two Christians were killed as they fled. As of yet, there has been no official reaction to the attack.

Please pray for God’s abundant grace to be upon all affected by this attack.

Pray that local Christians would be strengthened in their faith and walk in unity in the face of these ongoing attacks.

Pray that believers would trust in God and not live in fear (Psalm 56:4).
