Remains of the Agatu Church. Only the shell remains but services are still held there where 113 died. The April mission trip to Nigeria – Part 2

We drove south for many hours from Makurdi and stopped briefly at Agatu town, then headed to the village where the attack occurred.  When the paved road stopped we had to change cars to continue at under five miles per hour on a dirt road that was more path than road.

Why the sudden rush for passage of HR-390?

The bill was on hold by the Senate Leadership until the last week of April, when it was suddenly put on  a “fast track” as an election tool to get Christians to vote Republican this fall. But it simply was not the same bill that passed the House last year and Senator Rand Paul was right to put a hold on it until Senator Corker’s language is removed.

William J. Murray arrives at an IDP camp with aid for Christians who were forced to flee from their homes by Muslim attackers Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Benue State

Before arriving at the IDP camp we stopped by the “Modern Market” We were there to buy diapers and feminine products, as we had been told there was a desperate need for them at this particular camp.

Nigeria mission trip success as attacks continue.

Our Easter event at the orphanage had to be cut short to move children out of the camp for safety. The orphanage is under constant threat as are all Christian institutions in the “Middle Belt.” All we can really do is show love and support by helping wherever we can.

Car the suicide bomber drove on the grounds of the church as a reminder. Visit to a bombed church

On Easter Sunday, I attended one of the churches that had been bombed in 2012.  That was a bad year for church bombings in Nigeria; many hundreds died and thousands were injured while in worship services at their churches.

One of the dormitories of the girls’ school where the kidnapping of the girls occurred Mission to Nigeria Planned Despite Latest Kidnappings

The Sunni Muslim terrorist group, Boko Haram, which has pledged loyalty to the Islamic State, has kidnapped more young girls in Nigeria. 110 girls, some as young as 13, were taken from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College in Dapchi.

Three major Christmas celebrations in Qaraqosh

When I visited Qaraqosh in June 2017 only a handful of families had returned because of the level of destruction and the unsanitary conditions made living there nearly impossible.
In December of 2017, there were about 5,046 families, but the exact number is variable because some give up after a short period there.  Living in a burnt out home with no major appliances such as stoves or refrigerators is difficult, especially for those with young children or family members having special medical conditions. The civilians are still waiting for the reconstruction efforts they need so much, generators, electricity, water, …etc.

Can Ambassador Sam Brownback bring sanity to State?

None of the social conservatives on Capitol Hill, including myself, have forgotten the numerous victories for our agenda while Senator Brownback was in office.  The entire social conservative community on Capitol Hill was saddened when he departed Washington to become governor of Kansas.

Qaraqosh Diaper Distribution

In 2017 we were able to expand our program from providing not only diapers for families with babies, but we were also able to provide much needed sanitary pads for women, and also adult diapers for the elderly and disabled. The following testimony was shared by one of our ministry partners from the February 5, 2018 diaper distribution.
