On Oct. 13, Boko Haram released 21 of the 276 girls they had kidnapped from a school in Chibok in April 2014. Many of the girls reportedly appear frail, and at least one of the young women has a baby. Boko Haram targeted the school because they believe Western education corrupts the values of Muslims and because the school is located in a mostly Christian area. The majority of the girls were forced to convert to Islam and marry their captors. Negotiations for the release of the other girls continue. Pray that the Lord will comfort these young women and bring them and their families healing.
