Statement by the Most Rev. Foley Beach in response to the attack on the home of the Most Rev. Benjamin Kwashi, Archbishop of Jos and general secretary of the GAFCON movement

It was an honor and joy to share Christian fellowship with my brother, Archbishop Ben Kwashi last week.  He has long been a good shepherd to his people, and while his life was spared in this latest attack, I grieve with him at the death of his neighbor.  The lack of basic security around Jos is not a new story, but it is an important one that has been underreported.  Please pray for courage and protection for our brothers and sisters in Jos, and the surrounding region.  Pray also that the Nigerian government will be proactive and successful in ending the violence and instability.

A spokesman for the Archbishop of Canterbury said Archbishop Welby "has had a private, pastoral telephone discussion with ++Ben Kwashi" in the wake of the attack.
