It was difficult spending three days in Minna, the capital of Niger state. The temperature in Jos fluctuates between 16 to 24 degrees Celcius and that in Minna settles within 28 to 40; it was not easy to cope. The National Evangelical Missionary Association, in conjunction with LCAN, put together a special Muslim evangelism training for pastors and church leaders. There was a unanimous consensus about the effectiveness of the seminar. “We are so blessed and we now know better how to approach our Muslim friends.”
On the 15th of April, in Gwada, Niger state, where another training took place, a church and its bus was burnt down by Islamic militants. It took courage for us to still hold the training in Minna. Unfortunately, such is the situation when we do ministry.
Though it’s very tough for Muslims to become Christians, they are still turning to The Way. One of our trainees told us about a chief and his family in Niger state, who gave their lives to Christ because of the love the trainee showed them. The chief still goes to the mosque because of the fear of persecution but prays in the name of Jesus Christ.
