Remains of the Agatu Church. Only the shell remains but services are still held there where 113 died.

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?

May 18th, 2018 | By

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.

Nigeria mission trip success as attacks continue.

Apr 23rd, 2018 | By

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.

Three major Christmas celebrations in Qaraqosh

Jan 19th, 2018 | By

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.
