Pick a Name So We Won’t Forget…..

nigerian women

 

 

 

I chose Naomi.  There were 276 girls kidnapped in Nigeria, but I chose Naomi.  I chose her name s I would remember to pray for her and for all of them.  The crime of these girls, according to their kidnappers, is that they were pursuing an education.  The kidnappers say Western education must stop.  Girls should pursue marriage.  They kidnapped these girls to sell them as slaves.  To sell them into marriages. The kidnappers say they should be sold into marriage starting at age 9.

 

I chose Naomi so I wouldn’t forget.  I remember meeting the girls at the Women’s Vocational Center in Ghana.  I was struck by their beauty, their enthusiasm, their hearts filled with hope for a better future.  I bet these Nigerian girls were filled with hope as well.  Until April 14th when everything changed.  Read more about it here .

 

So please pick a name.  Pick one and pray for her everyday.  Pray for her as a reminder of all the girls in captivity right now.  We only have 180 of the 276 names.  Pray for one. Pray for them all.
