Most churches in Cameroon are in the south, and church leaders pay little attention to the plight of fellow-Chrisians far away in the north, which is very poor and where the Islamist militant organisation Boko Haram is active. Many people in the north have been killed, many cattle stolen and crops burned, more than 100 villages stand empty. Hundreds of school have closed down and many church buildings have been destroyed. Tens of thousand of Nigerian refugees have sought safety there as they flee from Boko Haram’s violence in their own county. “We ask prayer, prayer, prayer for this crisis,” pleaded a Cameroonian church leader. Pray that church leaders will have the skills to respond effectively to this crisis and also to bring pastoral care to those traumatised by what they have suffered.
