An evangelist visiting family members in Bauchi state was severely beaten recently and left for dead by Muslim villagers. Adamu was raised as a Muslim but placed his faith in Christ after hearing the gospel on the radio. Since then, he has been sharing the gospel with members of the Fulani tribe, who are traditionally Muslim nomadic herdsmen.
Adamu often visited his uncle in Bauchi state, and on one such visit he led a young woman to the Lord. When her family threatened her for becoming a Christian, Adamu helped her move into a safe house in another city. Then, after her family learned that Adamu had helped her, they came after Adamu one evening while he was visiting his uncle. The woman’s family members and some villagers beat Adamu and a friend so badly that they lost consciousness.
Adamu has since undergone numerous surgeries, and his injuries prevent him from talking. Pray for Adamu’s complete healing and that his faith will remain strong.
