Defeating Death

Members of Nigerian Islamic extremist group Boko Haram tried to slaughter a Christian in the northeastern state of Borno in April 2013 for refusing to renounce Christ, cutting the back of his neck rather than the front so as to increase the pain, he said. They left him for dead, but he recovered. Such cruelty has discouraged Christians in Nigeria's southern provinces from attending a seminary in the northeast that trains young people to plant churches, so the ministry that runs it is building a new training center in the capital, Abuja. 'If we do not take this step, we will have no workers in the near future to reach new fields,' the ministry director said. "It's going to cost us $400,000 or more to build a second school of missions. This is the greatest need now, as without new missionaries coming in through our training, everything will reduce without a work force. Do not worry about the huge cost. The Lord will provide."
