Do Something

Write to: Pastor Jeremiah

“When we go to sleep at night, we are never sure whether we will make it alive to the next day.”

Pastor Jeremiah – whose name we’ve changed to protect his identity – was attacked whilst at his home in Nigeria’s middle belt in April 2020. The attack was part of a wave of violence against Christian farmers and communities, carried out by militant Fulani herdsmen. His home, and the connecting church building where he is a pastor, was set on fire and many of his things were destroyed.

Not all the Christians in the community survived this attack. But Pastor Jeremiah is still selflessly shepherding his people toward hope, reminding them that God is with them and still has plans for them. “We should give glory to God,” he says. “He is alive and will help us.”

Thanks to you support, Pastor Jeremiah and the believers under his care, have received food, medicine, help rebuilding homes, spiritual support and trauma care. “If you had not come, we would have suffered even more,” he says.

Pastor Jeremiah is one the many Christians in Nigeria who risk their lives daily to live out their faith in Jesus. He needs encouragement – more so given his responsibilities as a pastor – and you can do that by writing to him personally.
