Our hearts are broken...
Our hearts are broken…for Nigeria and now, Afghanistan-man’s inhumanity to man…
The destabilization of Nigeria has sent shockwaves throughout the African continent and continues to spiral, seemingly unchecked…
A simple phone call from Bishop Dogo in Kafanchan to report on school construction progress ended with the receipt of dozens of photos he took from one of the villages in his diocese.
The village was attacked in the early morning, leaving 5 people dead, including his warden’s wife and child. Scores of houses and farms were burned, and livestock slaughtered, leaving the victims with nothing.
No ambulances or first responders to administer aid.
No undertakers to help with the bodies.
No insurance for hospital care or to repair damaged homes or replace belongings.
No farms left for daily food.
No government agencies to handle disasters.
Only police that arrived in the aftermath…
We consider Nigeria our second home and these people our extended family. Our lives here could reflect the same chaos but for geography…
The photos are difficult to view- but sometimes we need to see hard things. Out of respect, victims’ photos have been held back.
Our hearts are broken…but not destroyed. We will continue to offer prayers to our extended family and hope that we may someday return.
We will continue to work with Bishop and the board of Africa Education Partnership to honor his requests for funds to continue to build and renovate schools so that all children may learn and grow together-reconciliation through education.
