I can’t but wonder what would be the implication of the Boko Haram’s statement about Leah Sharibu becoming their slave. They speak with so much authority forgetting that they are mere grasshoppers before the creator.

Today’s post from OpenDoors is especially disturbing. Perhaps, because it is a reality I can closely relate with. It is the news about Leah Sharibu, the abducted Christian Chibok school girl and other aid workers whom the Boko Haram have announced that they would keep as slaves.

This was contained in a recent video released after one of the abducted aid worker, Hauwa Liman was executed, having being kept in captivity since March 2018. It’s ridiculous and saddening how this evil genius would continue to perpetuate their wickedness with no iota of fear for God or respect for human life.

As I think about what seemed like a hopeless situation, the miraculous escape of Apostle Peter from the prison in Acts 12 gives me some respite and assurance that indeed God is at work and He’s able to deliver these helpless captives in a way that seemed humanly impossible.

These blood thirsty grasshoppers bragging about their control of precious human lives, and assuming the place of God shall soon be as dust before the wind, and their end shall be worst than their beginning! Let’s keep hope alive and pray for all the captives.

Beyond, the rescue efforts of our Government, God is more than able to deliver them. He certainly has a plan, and it will ripen up faster than they think.

We are winning! Yes, we are winning

Muyiwa –

Boko Haram Sect: ‘From today, Leah Sharibu will be our slave.’

We are reporting difficult news today.

One month to the day since releasing a video of an execution of a kidnapped aid worker and threatening to kill three other hostages, including 15-year-old Christian schoolgirl Leah Sharibu, militants have released another video.

In it, the Boko Haram faction, Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), executes a second aid worker and issues a threat to keep Leah and the third kidnapped aid worker, Alice Ngaddah, as “slaves for life.”

ISWAP fighters had specific words for Leah and Alice, also a Christian. Click the link below to read the full story and find 10 specific prayer points.

And finally, we can learn from and follow the example of Leah’s mother, Rebecca Sharibu, who continues to plead, “Please don’t give up hope. Please continue to lift up Leah and our family. Please continue to stand with us.”

Thank you for standing…
