(Worthy News) - A spate of attacks on Christian villagers in Cameroon by Boko Haram has left a community grieving beloved pioneer church planter David Mokoni and 7 others, as well as a bevy of sleepless victims in deep psychological distress.
Beginning on December 1st, the militant Islamic group fired on a funeral in Moskota village in the far north and forced women to flee without their children, killing three more people the next night who afterwards possessed "only their eyes to cry," and kidnapping 21 young people on December 5.
"And when a pastor falls in Africa, doesn't that mean anything? Only emptiness," a song written by a young local Christian to commemorate the tragedies goes.
Boko Haram, the West African ISIS, tends to descend on villages in the middle of the night, meaning some people are not sleeping at all anymore, according to Barnabus Fund.
