Two Children Left for Dead

Philip Yakubu and his sister, Grace, are still recovering from a violent attack in which 8-year-old Philip lost his eye. The siblings were playing in their home one evening in September 2018 when Islamist Fulani herdsmen broke into the house. The attackers hacked at the children with machetes as Grace, 15, shielded their younger sister with her body. While doctors were able to save their lives, they both face long recoveries. Grace has recovered enough to return to school, but Philip is still struggling. Both children have symptoms of PTSD. Since the attack, Philip has done nothing but pray and ask God to forgive the men who did this to him. Pray for their continued recovery.
