Write to: Leah’s family

On 19 February 2018, 110 girls were taken from Dapchi, Nigeria, by Boko Haram militants. One hundred and four of those girls were returned almost a month later – of the six who did not come back, five died while in captivity. The remaining girl, Leah Sharibu, is the only Christian, and is still being held captive because she will not renounce her faith in Christ.

Leah asked her friends to pass on a message to her mother, Rebeccah: “My mother you should not be disturbed… My God, whom we have been praying to with you, is showing Himself mighty in my trying moment… I am confident that one day I shall see your face again. If not here, then there at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Like millions of Christian women and girls around the world, Leah is vulnerable for both her gender and her faith.

For Leah’s parents, Nathan and Rebecca, each day is unbearably difficult, not knowing if their daughter is okay and if they’ll ever see her again. They continue to desperately need your prayers. And now there is something else you can do to support them – you can write to them. They’d love to hear from you.

To prevent Nathan and Rebecca from being overwhelmed, please ensure that you stick closely to the guidelines provided below.

Although this limits what you can write and send, please be assured that your card will be given to Leah’s parents, with each one serving as a tangible reminder of the number of people praying for them and their daughter.


  • Please only use the pre-designed A6 postcard provided here
  • Please print this off and write only your first name and country on the back (you can include a salutation such as ‘With love’ or ‘God bless’)
  • Please do not include any other content apart from the above, however it is okay to add small drawings
  • Please send this in an envelope to the address provided at the below (if you are sending multiple postcards, please post them in the same envelope)
  • This is a postal campaign only; please do not send cards to us via email.


  • Do not mention Open Doors on the postcard
