Write a note of encouragement to aNigerian Christian
Nearly all Christians in northeastern Nigeria have lost family members in attacks by Boko Haram or Fulani Islamic militants. Entire church congregations have been displaced, and worshiping and serving Christ openly takes great courage and faith.
This month we invite you to send our persecuted Nigerian brothers and sisters in Christ a personal note of encouragement. Many Nigerians read English, so you can communicate directly with them.
In your note, you can include a Bible verse, a prayer that you have prayed on their behalf, or simply a message letting them know that they have not been forgotten by other Christians around the world. A children’s Sunday school class may want to write notes or draw pictures to encourage kids their age, and your small group or church can write to a widow or a pastor.
Thank you for choosing to share in the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings with Nigerian believers (Phil. 3:10).
