Twenty-seven-year-old Gertrude lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where violence against Christians is rampant and churches are under attack. In this country, and right across sub-Saharan Africa, our brothers and sisters face extreme persecution.
“I lost the remaining strength I had,” said Gertrude. “When they killed him, I felt dead too… I lost my mind. My first thought was the children. How would I provide for them?”
It was hours before Gertrude crept out. Her son was nowhere to be seen; ADF militants had kidnapped him.
“My husband blocked our boy and I crawled into the bush, but they shot my foot and stomach,” she recalls.
“It is God alone who gives me strength to bear this pain.”
Every PHP 2,700 helps three Christians who’ve experienced extreme violence by providing hope and healing at a trauma center.
Every PHP3,400 provides food, medicine and other emergency relief to help two believers displaced by persecution.
Every PHP 4,700 educates 17 young people from persecuted families for a month, giving them hope for the future.
Thank you and may God richly bless you.
