Rev. Daniel Mbaya, general secretary of Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria (EYN, the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria), in a text he passed across the church asked all the EYN DCC [church district] secretaries, heads of programs, and institutions to a one-day fasting and prayer for the Church of the Brethren in the United States.
“The Leadership of EYN with loud voice call on all Pastors, Reverends, and the entire members of EYN to a one day fasting and prayers. God to guide them in the 2016 annual conference,” his text said. “Having stood by us in our moments of trials of financial and through prayers, we need to stand by them through prayers at this crucial conference.”
Church of the Brethren in America and Mission 21 has assisted the devastated EYN denomination operating in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe States in Nigeria.
