Nigeria, West Africa:    When one of our Christian brothers or sisters suffers, we all suffer.  This urgent prayer request has been received from the Free Methodist Church:

Please pray for the safety and speedy release of Rev. Phyllis Sortor, Free Methodist missionary in Nigeria, who was abducted by several people Monday, February 23, from the Hope Academy compound in Emi Woro, Kogi State, Nigeria.

Free Methodist Church leaders are actively working with appropriate authorities for her release. Also pray for the leaders of the FMC in Nigeria and staff and children of the Hope Academy ICCM school, as well as Phyllis’ family.


(If communicating in any way – including social media – about this prayer concern, we ask you to share only the statements above. Any additional information may jeopardize Phyllis’ safety.)
