Tragic Breaking News

Jul 8, 2021

Reach out with Christ's love

As a friend of LRI, you know how prevalent, how violent, Nigerian militants are--how forcefully they attack and invade Christian villages, churches and schools.

Tragically, International Christian Concern reports this breaking news:

"In the early hours of July 5, 2021, gunmen invaded Bethel Baptist High School, Damishi, in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Nigeria, and kidnapped 153 students. ... As of July 6, 2021, 28 of the students were recovered, while 125 are still missing."

Christians in Nigeria carry a dreadfully heavy burden.

Threats of kidnapping, attacks, displacement, sexual violence and murder are a daily reality for our brothers and sisters in this West African nation--and their families and communities.

While the persecuted around Nigeria and elsewhere continue to trust in their Heavenly Father for strength and safety, I continue to trust that compassionate friends like you will keep supporting them in faithful prayer and tangible relief.

Your generous gift to Liberty Relief International will help provide for believers in desperate need of help and hope today.

Our partners on the ground in hostile places like Nigeria, the Middle East and beyond offer:

  • Emergency aid like food, water and shelter.
  • Critically needed trauma counseling.
  • Literacy and job training.
  • Help in rebuilding churches and homes destroyed in attacks.
  • Bibles and study materials.
  • Discipleship training for new believers.
  • And more.

Your contribution to LRI will minister to persecuted believers and others facing cruelty, brutality and heartache.

You have my sincere appreciation for your role in our efforts together for those who are suffering.

Please pray every child in this latest abduction will be unharmed and returned home immediately. Our God is able!
