Translator Kidnapped in Nigeria

“For the angel of the Lord is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him” (Psalm 34:7, NLT).
The translator/coordinator of the Tarok translation project in Nigeria was kidnapped in Jos on December 16. Please pray for the safe release of Stephen. Pray too, for his family, and for the Tarok translation team. As a result of this incident, the team was forced to cancel a translation checking session scheduled for this month. The Tarok translation is a project of The Seed Company.
- Pray for Stephen, and ask God to minister to him during his captivity. Pray for his immediate release.
- Continue to pray for peace to be fully restored in Jos after the recent unrest over Christmas.
Tarok is 190km southeast of jos.
