Factions of Boko Haram have frequently kidnapped girls, notably over 270 from Chibok in 2014, over one hundred from Dapchi in February 2018 and another 18 girls in late 2018. While the Dapchi girls were soon released, the lone Christian among the girls, Leah Sharibu, is still in captivity after reportedly refusing to convert to Islam. A Boko Haram leader explained that the kidnapping and enslavement of non-Muslim people is justified, while doing the same to Muslims is not. Pray for any Christian girls who refuse to convert to Islam to know the peace and presence of Jesus in profound ways (The Bible, Psalm 4:1).
