After the attack, Christians mobilized to rebuild the community. Recently, they were finally able to come together for worship.

In July, Christians in Plateau State in Nigeria were attacked. The toll was very heavy, 5000 people displaced and more than 250 houses razed.

Ibrahim Isah, a Fulani convert to Christianity, became the pastor of this assembly. He remembers the attack:

“Members of my tribe came to destroy my house by setting it on fire. I escaped, but my entire property was set on fire. "

Since then, he has helped the community to rebuild itself. Recently, Christians were able to come together again for worship. Pastor Gah Yohana recalled that God “will change all things in due time for the good of those who love him”.

41 widows, still displaced, wanted to collect their tithes and send them to the community. A testimony of their "absolute dependence on God" which was honored by Reverend Danladi Chohu, who led the communion.
