Bomb Scare Reignites Christians Fear of Persecution in Mali

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Almost a year after the French military intervened in the conflict in Mali, Christians living in a city in northern Mali have been reminded why Mali was ranked 7th on the list of the world's worst persecutors of Christians. On January 12, Christians discovered a bomb placed outside the building they were using as their church. Although it isn't know if the church was the actual target of the bomb, these Christians who are returning to Mali's northern regions have been reminded of the threat of persecution they face one year ago. Please pray for these brave individuals seeking to bring Christianity back to northern Mali.
