Reminder/This is the Second Anniversary of the Kidnapping of the Nigerian Girls from Chibok

Two years ago, 276 girls at a boarding school at Chibok in Nigeria were kidnapped by Boko Haram. While some of them escaped, most did not. This launched the worldwide Bring Back Our Girls campaign. It is likely they have been sold, either as sex slaves or into forced marriages. Please pray that our Lord will give them special graces and protection. Pray that they will somehow know, even supernaturally, that they are not forgotten and that they are loved. These girls are somebody’s sister, somebody’s cousin, somebody’s friend and somebody’s daughter. This barbarity absolutely sickens me.
This link from the BBC will provide a great deal of information about what we know and will give you more information about some of these girls.
