On Sunday, 13 April 2014, an estimated 275 girls reported to Chibok Government Secondary School. On Monday evening, 14 April, Boko Haram insurgents broke into the school, burned down the administration block and classroom blocks of the school, destroying all school records, and abducted more than 250 girls.
On 14 April 2014, over 200 girls were abducted by Boko Haram from Chibok in northeastern Nigeria. 165 of them were Christians. Of the 275 students present during the attack and abduction, our sources say 23 avoided being taken, 16 jumped off trucks as they were taken to the camps and four managed to escape after arrival. Apart from the four, no others have managed to escape since. Open Doors continues to be there for the Christian parents of the abducted girls.

Damaris from #Nigeria #loves to #sing in the choir at her church. “I like singing because songs always #strengthen my #faith. Anytime I’m singing, I feel I am complete, the #Spirit is moving, I will see the #glory of God.” If you are feeling weak and discouraged today, why don’t you consider to follow our persecuted sister, Damaris’ example, and sing a song to our King! #womensmonth
