On the day after Christmas in 2022, suspected Islamic militants attacked a Christian family in the village of Obire in Burkina Faso. The attackers shot into the house, killing four young people inside and injuring two others. The attackers then set the house on fire and stole motorcycles, burning those they did not take. Afterwards, local church members took the victims’ bodies and buried them in a nearby village.
Please pray for the grieving parents and family members of those killed.
Pray for front-line workers as they comfort this family.
Pray for the hearts of the Islamic militants and for the government to allow religious freedom for Christians.
