Nigerian Muslims killed pastor and three others
The report documented the destruction of homes, farmland, churches, and an orphanage; the slaughter of many children; and the mass kidnapping of people for ransom.
The report concluded, “Well-armed Fulani militia frequently attack villages in the Middle Belt. … The violence has displaced millions and appears designed to reduce the number of indigenous Christians in the region. Inasmuch as the attacks are intended to destroy ethnoreligious communities, they may rise to the level of ethnic cleansing or even genocide.”
Please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Nigeria.
Jeremiah 10:25 says, “Pour out Your fury on the Gentiles, who do not know You, and on the families who do not call on Your name; for they have eaten up Jacob, devoured him and consumed him, and made his dwelling place desolate.”
400 civilian bodies discovered in Bucha, Ukraine
Ukrainian towns like Bucha are bearing grim stories of war as Russia withdraws troops. Ukrainian officials reported the discovery of 400 civilian bodies. The International Criminal Court has opened an investigation into atrocities committed in Ukraine.
As many countries sanction Russia, economists anticipate that Russia’s economy will contract 8% this year and that the country’s inflation will reach 20%.
Pastor Artur Pawlowski released from Canadian prison
Last week, authorities in Alberta, Canada finally released Pastor Artur Pawlowski who has been in custody for nearly two months.
Officials arrested Pawlowski last month for speaking to a group of Canadian truckers who were protesting the government’s COVID-shot mandates.
Police also arrested Pawlowski last year for holding in-person worship services in violation of COVID-19 restrictions.
Pro-life group buries remains of 100 babies, 5 of whom were full-term
Members of the group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising recently rescued and buried the remains of over one hundred babies killed in abortion at the infamous Surgi-Center in Washington, D.C., reports NBC News.
Five babies were so developed that the pro-lifers suspected the abortionist killed the babies during or after birth. The pro-lifers took the bodies of the babies to the police and to the D.C. Medical Examiner’s office. However, the Medical Examiner’s office has declined to take action.

61% of women embrace traditional female characteristics
March was Women’s History Month. As pop culture celebrates the modern woman’s departure from traditional feminine characteristics, what do most ordinary women think?
The U.S. Adult Sexual Behaviors and Attitudes survey from Deseret News found that 61% of women identified as very feminine.
Women who identified as very feminine reported better financial situations, personal health, general happiness, and life satisfaction. High-feminine females were also the most likely to marry and have fulfilling marriages. They were also more likely to describe themselves as able to take risks, manage uncertainty, and self-regulate.
Proverbs 31:10 and 30 says, “Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. … Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”
Biden releases oil reserve while blocking drilling
Last week, President Joe Biden ordered the release of one million barrels of oil per day from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve in response to rising gas prices. It’s the largest release from the emergency oil reserve.
Yet, the president has blocked U.S. oil companies from drilling at almost every turn.
Meanwhile, food prices are also going up. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Price Outlook for 2022 predicts all food prices will go up between 4.5 and 5.5%.
Most complete map of human genome
And finally, an international team of scientists announced last week they have created the most complete map of the human genome.
Scientists attempted to create the human reference genome twenty years ago, but it was missing about 8% of the genome.
Now, with new technology, the latest project presents a 3.055 billion–base pair sequence of a human genome. The sequence fills gaps in the previous work, adding 200 million more base pairs.
Scientists hope the better picture of the genome will allow for medical discoveries in aging, cancer, and heart disease.
Psalm 139:14 says, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.”
