Earlier this year, radical Muslims attacked Christians in a village in Nigeria. The Muslim group “Boko Haram” has attacked many people and places in the area. They are fighting to rule Nigeria by Muslim law.
Gabriel, a boy in the village, lived with his father, also named Gabriel, and his mother. The father Gabriel was sick in bed with a serious illness. Gabriel’s mother wondered how she could flee with her son and her sick husband. She left her son Gabriel standing with a neighbor while she went to help her husband. As the boy waited, one attacker’s bullet hit the neighbor and another hit Gabriel. Both fell down. The neighbor died, and Gabriel suffered from a wound in the leg. The wound later became infected.
Please pray for Gabriel and for healing and comfort for all those who have been attacked in Nigeria.
