Before I get to today’s letters, an important update on the EYN and their situation from COB Newsline:
“Prayer is requested for the students and staff of Kulp Bible College (KBC), and the leadership of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria), as the decision has been made to temporarily close the college. Students will be leaving for other areas of the country, and headquarters staff also may be making ready to leave as Boko Haram forces advance to within 50 kilometers of the EYN headquarters.” – Church of the Brethren Newsline
And a tweet today from COB General Secretary Stanley Noffsinger:
EYN church leadership have left hqtrs in Nigeria. We are in touch with Dali’s. Merciful God, bring your peace to Nigeria.

The most important action you can take right now is to double your prayers for peace and safety.
