(Voice of the Persecuted) Another Christian has been abducted in Nigeria, this time it is an American Missionary who pioneered several Christian Schools in the mostly Muslim part of the country.  Gunmen stormed the school and abducted her.  Nigeria through the evil Boko Haram has been a hotbed for abductions.  And it’s been said they have made millions in ransom payments.  The Christian girls from Chibok are still in captivity.  No one has claimed responsibility yet, but there are reports that a ransom has been requested in the amount of $300,000.

(Daily Mail) An American woman working as a Christian missionary in central Nigeria was kidnapped Monday morning, the website of the Free Methodist Church and a security source revealed on Tuesday.  ‘Early this morning we received a report that Reverend Phyllis Sortor, our missionary in Nigeria, was abducted from the Hope Academy compound in Emiworo, Kogi State, Nigeria by several persons,’ the church said.  According to a report by AFP, a group of masked gunmen raided Hope Academy, the school that Sorter and her church built in the village of Emiworo around 10am.  (Read Full Story)

    Lord you know this precious soul, that she is working out your purposes in the lives of the people she is serving. Lord she is a lone woman amongst all those soldiers and I ask You to protect her and that her Christian love would make them consider her faith, that they may come to know the love and power of the Living God for themselves.
