Will you stand with believers in Nigeria?

Nigeria (ODM) — A few days ago, a video emerged from Boko Haram showing the kidnapped Nigerian girls dressed in burqas while being held captive. The girls have been held hostage for a month now, and each passing day brings more fear and uncertainty.

Open Doors is on the ground in Nigeria and in other countries, supporting women and children like these who have had their lives turned upside down by the horrific acts of extremists.

Through like trauma counseling and training to stand strong in the face of persecution and even rebuilding homes and churches destroyed by extremist groups, Open doors is able to stand with these dear sisters.

But to keep these vital programs going, they need your help! As the attacks in Nigeria and other countries continue to increase, your support is desperately needed. Please stand with these Christian women and children by sending your most generous gift today.

In 2013, more than 700 Christian girls were kidnapped in Pakistan, and hundreds were kidnapped in Egypt as well. Christian women and children have been increasingly targeted by extremist groups and deeply depend on your prayers and support.

Thank you for standing not only with the Christian girls who have been abducted, but with the countless others being persecuted for their faith!
