Evangelist Attacked by Armed Gunmen

Two armed men forced an evangelist in northern Burkina Faso out of his house one night recently. When they led Yaya outside, he managed to escape into the darkness as the men shot at him several times. His wife and children are staying with relatives, while Yaya has fled to a different town. Islamists have increasingly targeted Christians in the region, attacking churches and killing several pastors recently. Pray for Yaya’s wisdom as he determines how to continue his ministry.
