Election & Violence Update
For those of you following the news (or not), Christians are happy that Goodluck Jonathan, incumbent President of Nigeria, won the Presidential election this month. While good for Nigeria's future, angry and extremist Muslims are torching homes, cars, churches, businesses and even people. Most of the damage and carnage has been in the northern states; at this time Jos seems to be spared much of the violence. As of today, I have only heard of one Faith Alive person (a woman who works closely with FANOL paste) whose family home and car were burnt in a northern state--Dr. Chris has not reported any loss of lives from the Faith Alive family. Please continue to pray, as there is still a gubernatorial election to be held in Jos.
