  2. And a list of burned out churches of Egypt has been compiled here- http://nilerevolt.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/1198/ and will be updated as warranted.

Open Doors USA reports via Mission News Network:

Egypt – Chaos continues in Egypt as the Muslim Brotherhood calls for more protests. Open Doors USA spokesman Jerry Dykstra shares this from an Egyptian believer: „He said, ‘These are the hardest days we’ve ever witnessed. A peaceful Egypt is now soaked in violence.'” Supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi are taking out most of their anger on one group: „Christians are being turned into the scapegoat. Many of the Muslim Brotherhood protestors are blaming Christians for the ouster of Morsi,” explains Dykstra. Their rage continues to claim lives. At last report, the death toll rose above 500, and over 3000 people are injured. In times like these, there’s only one thing we can do: pray . „Supplies can be replaced, and churches can be rebuilt. I think what we really have to focus on is the heart and soul of the people in Egypt. We need to pray for peace and the name of Jesus Christ to go out.”

The Christian Post reports:

The death toll in Egypt following clashes on Wednesday between Pro-Mohamed Morsi Islamic protesters and government military forces has climbed to 525, officials say, but the real number is suspected to continue to rise in the coming hours and days as the situation becomes clearer.

Christians make up about 8 million of Egypt’s population of 80 million and have been victims of Muslim attacks for years. Some Christians were worried when Islamists took over Egypt’s government in 2012 and relieved when the military ousted them from power last month. (source)

and Christianity Today:

at least 27 churches have been attacked and two Christians killed in retaliation, reports Morning Star News (MSN). Houses, monasteries, orphanages, schools and businesses belonging to Copts were attacked in nine provinces „causing panic, losses and destruction for no reason and no crimes they committed except being Christians,” the Maspero Youth Union, a Coptic activist group, told USA Today.

while Egyptian Street reports:

Violence in Egypt has taken a dark turn for sectarianism as more than 45 churches and Coptic institutions were torched or stormed across the country.

In cities across Egypt, from Sohag and Minya to Cairo and Assiut, Islamists took to the streets attacking churches. In one case in Minya, a Coptic man and his wife were detained before being killed by armed individuals.

In one incident, Islamists torched parts of one of Egypt’s oldest churches that was reportedly built in the 4th Century.

In a frantic email to Egyptian Streets, a Coptic student in Minya said, “They are burning everything we own, and there is no security in sight. Is this Islam? Is this what the Muslim Brotherhood want? To burn Egypt to the grounds!”

Boko Haram’s horrific attack on schoolchildren in Nigeria, 42 killed: burned alive or shot in the back while fleeing

Nigeria (MNN) ― At one time, Nigerian Christians and law enforcement had the most to fear from the Al Qaeda-linked Islamist militia, Boko Haram.

Today, it seems their campaign to instill Sharia law throughout the country has broadened. Their new targets are „soft” targets: farmers, aid workers, school children, and teachers. Open Doors USA spokesman Jerry Dykstra explains, „I think the government is increasing pressure. The result, I believe, is that the Boko Haram is fighting back.”

Their latest attack can only be described in one word: horrifying. In the dawn hours of July 8, Dykstra says, „Suspected Boko Haram extremists came and set fire to the school, and many of the students were burned alive. Others were shot in the back when they tried to flee.”

The boarding school was in Mamudo, Yobe. The United Nations’ children’s agency said 48 students and seven teachers died in that attack. Survivors said gunmen rounded up students and staff at the school and placed them in a dormitory before throwing explosives inside and opening fire.

What’s more, this isn’t the first time, says Dykstra. „This is about the third or fourth school they’ve targeted in the last month or so. They believe that the students should be getting radical Islamic instruction.”

The European Union condemned the „horrific murder by terrorists,” and the act prompted Britain to put Boko Haram on its terrorist list. Yobe is one of the three states where the Nigerian government imposed a state of emergency in May. Immediately after the attack, the governor closed all secondary schools.

Boko Haram means „Western education is a sin” in Hausa. Since they began their effort to Islamize Nigeria in 2001, over 9,000 have died. As a result, Nigeria launched a major offensive against Boko Haram on May 15.

Last year, the focus was churches and Christians. This year, it seems to be children. Dykstra notes, „According to Open Doors, there were about 30 Christians that attended the school that was burned down. We don’t know really how many of those killed were Christians.”

Samaila, a teacher at the school, told Open Doors that he could see scores of parents in shock trying to identify children. An Associated Press journalist also described chaotic scenes at a nearby Potiskum hospital as parents tried to identify their children from among the deceased.

There were two similar attacks on schools in June. On June 16 at a school in Damaturu, Yobe, suspected Boko Haram attackers opened fire on students. A pastor told Open Doors that the attackers arrived at the school asking for the Christian students by name. However, security agents interfered in the attack, and the insurgents ended up firing random shots, killing 13 students and teachers. Open Doors has not been able to confirm how many Christians were among the victims.

On June 18, suspected Boko Haram members also opened fire on students at a Muslim school in Maiduguri. Nine students and one medical worker were killed.

„The carnage in Nigeria continues,” says Dykstra. The senseless slaughter is hard to understand, which is why he urges believers to „pray specifically for the violence to stop. The government tried to talk to the Boko Haram leaders, but that didn’t work out. So now, they’re going after them. All these strategies don’t seem to have worked, so we need to put our trust in the Lord.”

Nigeria is ranked No. 13 on the Open Doors 2013 World Watch List of the worst persecutors of Christians.

Brazen attacks on Christians in Egypt now include rapes of women in broad daylight

Egypt (MNN) ― The sounds of firing guns and the accompanying shouts and screams have become commonplace background noise for a ministry leader and his wife supported by Christian Aid Mission.

„We just dream of peace and a stable situation, but each day is worse than the day before,” reports the leader. „People die each day in our blood-covered streets. We try to distract our children from the noise of gunshots that constantly ring out.”

Though they, along with their missionary coworkers, have been spared from harm thus far, they live and work with the idea that every day could be their last.

„They want to get rid of us Christians in any way possible. Maybe tomorrow they will burn our home, or kidnap, or attack us.”

Throughout the horror that has unfolded since the election of the Muslim Brotherhood and the new Islamist-backed constitution in December 2012, the ministry leader has provided glimpses into his world, turned completely upside-down.

Brittany Tedesco, Africa Director of Christian Aid, your link to indigenous missions, says attacks against Christians are unprecedented. „They’re very brazen. We’re talking women being raped in broad daylight, men being attacked, or the homes of Christians being ransacked. And really, they have no recourse.”

Tedesco says even the police, who work for the Muslim Brotherhood, are part of the persecution effort against believers. Often it is the victim of an attack who is arrested.

As part of the Islamic regime’s radical control of Egypt, nearly all independent media outlets have been shut down, and concerted efforts are being made to essentially dispose of the judiciary system.

As their country darkens, tens of thousands of Egyptian Christians have fled the nation. Yet the ministry leader and his co-workers are determined to remain, taking every opportunity to share Christ with the hurting and confused masses.

PRAY for the Christians of Egypt!

Russia: Dagestan’s Secret Christian Believers Fight a Spiritual War

Map of DagestanFrom Voice of the Martyrs –

While radical Russian Muslims are fighting to take over Dagestan for Islam there are secret Christians engaging in a different type of war, a spiritual one. They are risking their own lives to capture Muslim souls one at a time. In southern Russia, on the Eastern shore of the Caspian sea, sits Dagestan, the most dangerous province in the country. Muslims fight Russian forces almost daily to take over the province for Islam.
