Grace among flames - testimony from Zinder, Niger.

This happened last Friday when the Muslims finished their prayer at the mosque.

"A 73-year-old pastor was sitting in his living room when a mob broke in to vandalize, pillage, and then set fire to his house. Surrounded by flames, he and his family nearly suffocated but were saved when Muslim neighbors saw the smoke and ran to help them. In his church, only the metal roof remained. The fire had melted ceiling fans and turned the wooden ceiling into charcoal. Nothing remained of his pulpit. In his home, his children’s notebooks were in ashes, and only the iron frame of their beds was still standing. The pastor stated, “I have forgiven everything because those who burned my house did not know what they did.”
