“The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. I look to the Lord for every need. This is what I am still holding onto.”

–Rebecca

Burned ButNot Destroyed

The Voice of the Martyrs’ 2022 IDOP video, Rebecca: Nigeria, tells the story of a Nigerian woman who watched helplessly with her daughter as Boko Haram militants killed her husband and son, and burned her home. When she searched the charred remains of her home, she found the Bible that she and her husband had received on their wedding day. “I still use this Bible,” Rebecca said. “It reminds me of God’s faithfulness.”

This short film will inspire viewers to pray for those who trust in God’s Word as they live faithfully for Christ on the world’s most difficult and dangerous mission fields.

You and your family, group, class or church can experience meaningful worship by watching this short video and then praying that every Christian in a hostile area or restricted nation will have access to his or her own Bible.

Use and share these resourcesin person or online with your church, class or group throughout November.
