Nigerian Muslims Burn Pastor and Family Alive!
Christians in Nigeria face some of the greatest violence in the world for their faith.
On Tuesday, Muslim Fulani herdsmen raided villages in the country’s Plateau State, killing seven people, and destroying houses and churches.
Militants burned Pastor Adamu Gyang Wurim and his family alive, reports International Christian Concern.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian government has done nothing to protect Christians against the widespread violence.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Nigeria.

California Democrats Want Christian In-N-Out Burger to Get Out

Pro-Life High School Football Star’s Dying Wish: Stop Abortion in Texas
And finally, Psalm 116:15 says, “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints.”
Pro-life witness and high school football star Jeremiah Thomas went to be with the Lord on Sunday after battling an aggressive type of bone cancer this year.
Jeremiah is the son of Rusty Thomas, the director of the pro-life organization “Operation Save America.”
Jeremiah’s dying wish, made to Texas Governor Greg Abbott, was for the murder of unborn babies to end in his home state.
The website JeremiahStrong.com shared a message from Jeremiah shortly before his death.
“I’ve lost my hair, my ability to walk, the sensation in my legs and back, and my football career. But I haven’t lost my faith and hope in God. In fact, my faith and hope in Him have been strengthened. I’ve grown so much closer to my Savior, knowing full well my life is in His hands.”
Jeremiah made a call to this generation to leave behind the culture of death and immorality and be reconciled to God in Christ.
“It is my sincere prayer that you will take my words to heart and be reconciled to the Lord through the merits of Jesus Christ. May God’s kingdom come and His will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name.”
