How Easily we Forget

In April of this year over three hundred Nigerian girls were abducted from their school by members of the group Boko Haram. Now seven months later those girls still remain captives. When the story first broke it captured the attention of the world and many took on the hash tag ‘Bring back our girls’. For a while it seemed like they mattered. For a while it seemed like we cared. Today those girls appear to be nothing more than history, how easily we forget.

To all the Nigerian mothers pray on for God is mightier than the sword and when He speaks even Boko Haram will have to obey. Do not become desolate and do not give up hope. Pray without ceasing for with God all thing as possible. He will wipe away all tears from your eyes.
