Walking for Peace in Nigeria- Christian Reformed Church

November 19, 2007 - Together with many other believers from across Nigeria, two Christian Reformed Church workers are taking part in an unprecedented, 10-day peace walk. The walk, which began today, commemorates the first anniversary of the Takum Peace Agreement.

The agreement, signed almost exactly one year ago, ended a violent land dispute that destabilized communities in Nigeria, displacing families and causing starvation and death throughout parts of the West African country. If this walk is successful, supporters hope to walk again next year as well as encourage similar walks to take place all over Africa and beyond.
