It has been a little over a year since Christian girl Leah Sharibu was taken captive. She was kept in Boko Haram’s clutches because she refused to renounce her faith in Jesus Christ.
I want the same boldness and loyalty to Christ that Leah has. I would like to think that I, too, would refuse to renounce Jesus, but I cannot know for sure.
Leah is an inspiration; a gem who is precious to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Please take some time today to pray over Leah, and over her family.
Thank you for your prayers!
Leah’s faith in Christ is amazing. Learn more about Jesus, and what He has done for you and I, here.
It has been 235 days since Leah Sharibu was taken, along with 110 other girls, into captivity by Boko Haram.
While 105 of these girls were freed, some passed away, and only Leah was left behind– all because of her unwaivering faith in Christ as she refused to convert to islam.
Let’s pray for this beautiful young woman’s release!
“Please, whoever you are, please,” he cries out.
Up at 3 o’clock in the morning, a man prays to be able to see his family again. Desperation fills his voice as tears run down his cheeks. He hangs his head low. “Do you even care?”
This is the situation countless Nigerians have found themselves in. After their families and loved ones have been attacked and kidnapped by Boko Haram, all those left behind have are pictures and prayers. Continue reading
As the Presidential elections in Nigeria are gearing up (with the actual election happening in the Spring of 2019), different men are promising various things.
Let’s start praying for a Nigerian president who 1) Knows and Loves Jesus, and 2) will be committed to bringing home the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu, along with trying to remove all corruption.
Jesus is in control, and I am so excited to see what He decides to do this election!
Thank you for your prayers,

They were told it was safe. But on Saturday, September 8th 2018, the people who had just returned back to the city of Gudumbali, Nigeria were, once again, terrorized and forced out by Boko Haram. Continue reading
When I started this blog, I had one desire: I wanted the Chibok girls to be found and freed, as soon as possible. Now, more than 4 years later, my heart is stuck on the same desire. Continue reading
Yesterday, I was reading Psalm 126. I found it to be incredibly similar to the cries of so many hearts right now for the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu when reading the footnotes of the Psalm. What those footnotes say are in the brackets so that one can see its alternate meaning.
Please continue today to pray for the soon return of Chibok’s girls, as well as Leah Sharibu. Thank you. ❤
“1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of[a] Zion [brought back the captives to Zion],
we were like those who dreamed.[b] [restored to health.]
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
3 The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes,[c] Lord, [bring back our captives, Lord,]
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow;
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.”
