Season 3: Episode 6: Nigeria: Healing and Hope for Traumatized Christian Women and Girls

November 18, 2022

Northern Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places on earth to be a follower of Jesus. According to Open Doors, more than 4,600 Nigerian Christians were killed for their faith in 2021, and those are only the cases that were reported.


Militant Islamic groups are determined to eliminate Christianity from the country. These groups often target Christian women, using kidnapping, forced marriage and conversion to Islam as a means of demoralizing believers.


In this edition of the Closer to the Fire podcast, host Greg Musselman will introduce you to four young Christian women who are receiving greatly needed counselling and ministerial care so they can overcome the traumatic attacks of Islamic militants and experience renewed hope for the future.


Greg also shares how you can be a part of their healing journey by supporting Mara’s House, a trauma centre for Nigerian women and girls. Additionally, he examines the reasons behind the horrific levels of violence perpetrated against followers of Jesus in Africa’s most populous nation and what we can do to help many of these innocent victims.
