"Incessant killings of innocent Christians"

May 9, 2024

Provide HOPE Amid Hostility

 “Armed ‘bandits’ shot and killed Reverend Manasseh Ibrahim ... as he traveled to a church conference,” reports International Christian Concern (ICC).

This is the kind of violence that “has left thousands of believers in a state of fear” in Nigeria.

“‘Christians who are direct victims of banditry and insurgency in Kaduna state are fed up with the inability of the Nigerian government to find a lasting solution to the incessant killings of innocent Christians,’ said Yahaya Kinge, chairman of the local Christian Association of Nigeria.”

I could not agree more.

Nigerian brothers and sisters face constant uncertainty about their very lives. Brutal attacks — at any time of day or night, for any “reason,” in many communities — have become tragically commonplace.

The lives of believers are relentlessly threatened by radical groups like Boko Haram, Fulani militants, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), and others … and it’s in the news all the time.

Today I urge you to stand in the gap for Christians there and elsewhere who live under the threat of violence, torture, abduction, rape, or even death because of their faith.

Your compassionate gift today to Liberty Relief International — of 50, 100, 200 dollars, or more — will help provide for the basic needs of Christian brothers and sisters and their families — emergency aid like food, water, shelter, and safety after tragedy strikes.

Our partners on the ground in hostile places like Nigeria also offer:

  • Trauma counseling, literacy training, and job training.

  • Help in rebuilding churches and homes destroyed in attacks.

  • Bibles and study materials, plus discipleship training for new believers.

  • And more.

Your contribution to LRI will help meet the urgent needs of persecuted believers and others suffering ongoing cruelty and heartache.

Thank you, from my heart, for your compassion for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

In His Service,

Mat Staver
