A number of the fathers of the over 200 schoolgirls kidnapped by terror group Boko Haram from Chibok, Nigeria, have spoken out about the continued dangers their families face on a daily basis, and shared their pain of not knowing what has happened to their daughters.

Kristin Wright, director of advocacy for relief group Open Doors USA, told The Christian Post in a phone interview on Wednesday that she was able to meet with 10 of the Chibok fathers during a recent trip to Nigeria. She revealed that despite the grim situation their families find themselves in, the fathers are refusing to give up hope that one day their daughters will return to them.

“One of the fathers, when asked, ‘Where do you think your daughter might be?’ he said, ‘She is the hands of God.’ It was a sentiment that was echoed by all of the parents that I met with. They are not going to think about any other reality,” Wright told CP.
