Liberty Relief International wants to help provide immediate support for persecuted African Christians. These suffering brothers and sisters live in fear of militant Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria. And while the fundamentalist group Al-Shabaab threatens believers in East Africa, Christians must worship in secret and live in constant fear of being imprisoned — or worse — in Eritrea, Somalia and Sudan. Our Christ-centered partner working across the continent reports:

Right now, the persecution of Christians all across sub-Saharan Africa is reaching crisis levels. We must not leave our brothers and sisters in Christ to stand alone. … (H)elp provide lifesaving aid and other critical support programs to African believers risking all they have to follow Jesus. … The time for the Body of Christ to act is now. Our brothers and sisters in Africa can’t wait for help tomorrow. They need help today.

Because horrific and deadly violence against Christians continues in many parts of Africa, Liberty Relief International is expanding our reach beyond the Middle East this month. Will you please help ease the suffering of persecuted Christians and new believers in by making a tax-deductible donation today?

We’ve also learned that growing religious intolerance in parts of India is making life “very dangerous and difficult” for Christians there. Believers often are forced out of villages, beaten, and arrested for their faith in Jesus. Many far-right Hindu nationalists and militant Muslims in India have become a threat to the very lives of Christians.

Our ministry partner recently shared “Shandi’s” horrific story. The widow and her four children lost their husband and father after militants attacked and killed him for believing in Jesus. After his death, this terrified Christian family was forced to flee their village and live in seclusion.

While there’s still a great need in the Middle East for Bibles and other resources, Liberty Relief International feels called to assist brothers and sisters in other global “hotspots” hostile to the gospel. This month, we want to help persecuted Christians in Nigeria and India. Please stand with us to sponsor urgently needed humanitarian supplies and discipleship resources. Click here to help now.

Thank you, in advance, for your being a light in the darkness to persecuted Christians.

God bless you!


P.S. Our ability to make an impact relies entirely on the faithful prayers and financial support from friends like you. I pray you will be as generous to our brothers and sisters in Nigeria and India as you have been to persecuted Christians and new believers with Muslim backgrounds in the Middle East.
