Dozens Killed "in the Name of Allah"

Feb 4, 2020

A new tragic string of jihadist terror in Burkina Faso has made the headlines as of late.

On January 25 in the city of Silgadji, jihadists reportedly killing "in the name of Allah" threatened men and women with death if they didn't convert to Islam. When all was said and done, 50 people were killed — including as many as 10 Christians, International Christian Concern said.

Then on Saturday, in a town called Lamdamol, the lives of at least 18 people were lost in another violent attack.

Extremist aggression against Christians in Burkina Faso has skyrocketed over the past two years, leaving roughly 500,000 displaced according to UN estimates.

When you consider that these numbers aren't merely numbers at all, but men, women and children — with families and friends and all loved by God — it is overwhelming to comprehend the heartache and loss people around the world are experiencing at the hands of radical Islam.

But you can give hope in even the most desperate of circumstances.

And take a few moments, even now, to pray for Christians and their families who need hope amidst all the pain and suffering inflicted through radical Islamic persecution.
