HW ALERT: THE SITUATION IN JOS; NIGERIA

Hello again folks! Please read this letter from a believer in Nigeria. Whilst the mainstream media report the events in Jos as "ethnic clashes" or "religious violence"; this letter tells the Truth. Please remember to watch the periphery and not necessarily the 'main events':

"Dear Brethren,

Greetings in the precious name of the Lord.

I write to request special prayers for the Christians in Jos.

This morning [2:00AM Nigerian time], we were awoken by sounds of gunshots. Muslim insurgents and terrorists from the neighbouring State of Bauchi invaded some villages in Barakin Ladi Local Government Area. One of the villages is called Dogo'nahawa, which is about 7km from where we are living. After their visitation more than 100 people were killed, most of who were women and children, and several thousands injured.

This is a clear case of genocide against the Christians in Jos. I thought what happened in January was the worst scene I have ever witnessed, but this recent one is worse than that. I don't think I have the right adjectives to describe the massacre. Some of the bodies we saw had their heads dismembered, while many had their limbs chopped off. We also saw women with ripped stomachs, and small children with skulls shattered and bodies mutilated with knives and daggers. The invaders had many hours to themselves therefore they systematically ransacked nearly all the compounds in the village. They killed and maimed anybody they come across. Since it was in a remote part of the town, before security men could get there, they had done their worst and fled.

The actual scope and level of destruction is yet to be ascertained. What I can say is, that it is well beyond my imagination. All the churches in the village were burnt down. The Government says there will be a mass burial of the victims tomorrow.

Brethren, we are in deep distress, with nowhere to go. I fear for our lives even as I am writing this e-mail. My wife, who teaches in one of the local schools here, has not been able to go back to the school for fear of her life.

Jos is truly under siege by Muslim insurgents and terrorists. Please tell other brethren to continue to pray for us. We look only to God for a miracle and guidance in these very difficult times. The situation is so demoralizing.

We are confused right now; very confused as to what to do.

Jotham M. Kangdim
Jos, Nigeria"

I need add no more except to exhort you to pray and publicize this latest round of muslim mayhem; this time in Africa. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!

God bless you and God bless Israel ... Keith JS ... 12-March-2010
