The house of a Christian family was damaged by a bomb in the southeastern city of Jijiga on the evening of January 12, according to VOMC sources.
Terefe Feleke, his wife, and their two children were in the house at the time of the attack but none of them were seriously injured.
The roof of the house was destroyed by the bomb blast. While searching the compound, the police found another bomb set to explode a few hours later.
Thank the Lord for keeping Terefe and his family safe from serious harm. Pray for Christians in Jijiga, where Muslim mobs have recently mounted several attacks against Christians in an attempt to drive them out of the region.
Pray that they will to stand strong in their faith, and demonstrate Christ's love and prayers for their persecutors (Rev. 3:11; Matthew 5:43-48).
