Pastors in Niger Say Thank You

Pastors in Niger share a video message with Samaritan's Purse supporters

In mid-August, Samaritan’s Purse launched a campaign to help rebuild churches in Niger. Houses of Christian worship were burned, looted, and destroyed by Muslim mobs in early January in connection to the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. Since that time, congregations have continued to meet in the rubble left behind.

Through donations given by supporters like you, believers in Niger will be able to rebuild their churches, and, in doing so, minister to those who have persecuted them. Watch the video above to hear a message recorded by some of the pastors with whom we are working.

You can also view a photo blog here about the church burnings in Niger. Please continue to pray for strength and boldness for persecuted Christians there and around the world.

Niger Church Reconstruction
Niger Church Reconstruction Niger is one of the most impoverished countries in the world. Now, with new and increasing threats from the majority Muslim population, Christians here are in greater need than ever. Your gift of any amount can help Nigerien believers as they struggle to rebuild churches that were destroyed in early 2015. Our goal is to help communities reconstruct dozens of houses of Christian worship, each costing about $10,000.
