Boko Haram is still on killing sprees in northern Nigeria, although it’s often overshadowed by other headlines. Christians often find themselves in the crosshairs.
In the midst of horrific persecution, Nigerian Christians are urgently asking for more Bibles.
Mission Cry recently sent shipments of free Bibles and Christian books to believers in Nigeria. Rev. Jason Woolford, President of Mission Cry, says they heard from a man who received one of their containers. This man has been through a husband and father’s nightmare.
“Boko Haram came in and killed his wife and his two daughters, burned villagers, cut off body parts. The pictures that we have from our guy on the ground are just horrific. They’re things that you can’t unsee. He’s asking, ‘Could you please send the Word of God? We need the Word of God.’”
Including Nigeria, Mission Cry has shipped 24 sea containers packed with free Bibles and Christian books to 1.2 million people around the world this year.
