A report from Barnabas Fund (as included in Evangelicals Now – May edition)

A miraculous rescue took place after 72 Muslim-background Christian women and children captured by Boko Haram were about to be gunned down, it was reported in mid-March.
After being tortured, four male leaders of the group were told at gunpoint to renounce their faith in Christ and revert to Islam. When they refused, holding fast to their Saviour, the men were shot in front of their families and friends. The following week, the wives of the four martyred men were also ordered to renounce their faith or their children would be executed.
As the mothers struggled under this terrible burden into the night, the children came running in and said that the Lord Jesus had appeared to them and ‘all would be well’. The children said the Lord Jesus had told them not to fear, that he would protect them.
The next morning the children, one a girl as young as four, were lined up against a wall by the terrorists and their four mothers were told they could save them if they renounced Jesus Christ and returned to Islam. The mothers refused. The soldiers cocked their rifles and prepared to take aim, when they suddenly started to grab at their heads, screaming and shouting: ‘Snakes, snakes!’. Some ran away and others dropped dead where they stood.
One of the mothers grabbed a gun ready to shoot the remaining soldiers, but was stopped by a child: ‘You don’t need to do that. Can’t you see the men in white fighting for us?’
A Nigerian pastor of the area, was asked why Jesus appeared to this group and not to others and was told:
‘You have over 200 versions of Scripture and many people able to explain the Bible to you. These people do not have this.’
