Time is ticking for our sister Leah. On September 16 the Islamic group Boko Haram said that they will kill Leah in 30 days unless a ransom is paid.
In an act of desperation, Leah’s mother Rebecca Sharibu went on Nigeria’s national news to plead for help from anyone who would listen. I watched the video and my heart just ached.
Who will help Leah? Please watch the video below and join the body of Christ in carrying the Sharibu family’s burden – to say that they need us is an understatement.
It is heartbreaking, raw and emotional, but I’m sure it is only a glimpse of the anguish she and her family are experiencing right now as each day goes by.
I hope after watching the video you feel even more compelled, as I do, to pray earnestly for sister Leah, her parents Rebecca and Nathan, and her family, whose faith is being tested in ways that we can not even imagine.
Please share this post with your friends who love Jesus and pray. And use your FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter voice to share Leah’s story. Use #PrayforLeah #RememberLeah #FreeLeah in your posts.
Boko Haram’s deadline looms. We have 8 days.
Mercy and truth be with you,
