 Nigerian women engaged in bible study.

Food for the Spiritually Hungry

At a camp for displaced people in Nigeria, women gather to study the Bible – for some, their first contact with the Word of God. In many villages taken over by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, the rebels prohibit teaching about Christ, and an indigenous church-planting ministry has expanded its work to such camps for some of the more than 1.5 million people internally displaced in Nigeria. The indigenous ministry is able to purchase Hausa-language and other Bibles and distribute them in the camps. It is also helping to meet the basic needs of the displaced, providing food and medicines. "Many of them are coming to us and listening to us," the ministry director said. "We share with them, and they can't resist Christ – so many of them are accepting Jesus Christ in the camps."
