Amidst this coronavirus (aka COVID-19), something President Trump likes to call “the invisible enemy,” there is unfortunately still a visible enemy in Nigeria, Cameroon, and surrounding nations. On Sunday night, around 8pm, seven people were killed in Cameroon by a suicide bomber, with “a village chief and two teenagers among the dead” (source).
As the world is fighting this formidable enemy called COVID-19 or the coronavirus, it is imperative that we also keep our eyes on the terrorism and evil happening all around the world. This week, as we pray for the end of COVID-19, let us also look to our brothers and sisters all around us, and pray for their safety and wellbeing as well.
And, as an extension of love toward our brothers and sisters, we can give if we are led to do so by the Lord (you can read more about giving here, and give straight to Open Doors in Nigeria here). Also, find out how to give Bibles to third-world Christians here!
“We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters. If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.”
(1 John 3:16-18, NLT)
Thank you for your continued prayers, love, and support for those in Nigeria and its surrounding countries!

Please pray for (find the prayer sheet here):
- Those in Cameroon. They are experiencing lots of persecution right now.
- Boko Haram. That the organization would be demolished, and it’s adherents come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

Thank you for your prayers!
