The War Against Christianity in Nigeria Rages On

Jun 8, 2020

Your compassionate generosity makes a difference!

Yet another tragic attack on Christians in northern Nigeria...

A pastor and his wife were gunned down last week while working on their farm.

According to The Christian Post, the Rev. Emmanuel Saba Bileya — pastor at a Christian Reformed Church and a 2014 graduate of Calvin Theological Seminary in Michigan — and his wife, Juliana, were killed instantly. The couple leaves behind eight children, ages 1 to 19.

It's heartbreaking to think that all eight became orphans in an instant...

And it is even worse to think this kind of violence against Christians is widespread in Nigeria — the country holding the #12 spot on the Open Doors 2020 World Watch List.

A statement from the Hausa Christians Foundation (an indigenous Christ-centered ministry in Nigeria) says:

In what is being noted as systematic direct war against Christianity in Nigeria, Pastors, Christian Leaders and Seminarians are either being kidnapped or killed every week. Christians in Nigeria have been the target of many attacks by the vicious Boko Haram jihadist Islamist terrorists, herdsmen attacks and many other kidnapping[s] in recent times.

Will you pray for the Bileya family — and the millions of others globally — who have been and are continually targeted for their faith?
