The last 6 months have been difficult. More than 40,000 refugees have streamed into Niger escaping Boko Haram violence in Nigeria. Heavy rains caused massive flooding resulting in more than 57 deaths and affected nearly half a million people. The intense fighting between the Niger armed forces and jihadists under the ISIL banner has displaced around 70,000 people. The UN warns that a crisis in the Sahel region, particularly in Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso, is reaching unprecedented levels.

Let us urgently pray to the Lord of the nations, that He moves in great power in these nations (The Bible, Psalm 22:27-28).
