Many of the meetings I attended in person in Washington,
DC are now held by Zoom. One of the most important is the International Religious Freedom
Roundtable chaired by Ambassador Sam Brownback. I
made a presentation to stop the attacks on Christians in Nigeria.
Religious Freedom Coalition President, William J. Murray, gives and update on how our organization is handling the COVID-19 pandemic and how it is affecting our ministry programs.
Religious Freedom Coalition continues to function during crisis / Advocacy in Washington: Fighting for the Christians of Nigeria / More Christians killed in Nigeria as we work to start up orphanage farm / News from our ministry partners who are facing the Coronavirus
Even with the closures, our legislative work continues. Because of the overwhelming interest in our Nigeria missions and concern for the welfare of persecuted Christians in Nigeria, I began a post card campaign to President Trump. President Trump has already taken some actions to send a message to Nigeria!
The Coronavirus interferes with Nigeria mission and orphanage support / Donations to non-profit organizations plunging with coronavirus fears / Surprises from Religious Freedom Coalition supporters’ poll / On Capitol Hill – The new International Committee on Nigeria (ICON)
The coronavirus was introduced to the Bethlehem area by Christians on a pilgrimage from South Korea. The situation in the West Bank comes just as we had begun a diaper program at a nursing home for very elderly Christians who are in need of constant medical aid.
Fear is more contagious than any virus could ever be, and the media has really fed the fear factor for the coronavirus. Here are my frustrations and concerns with how the coronavirus has been handled in the US thus far.
New Islamic terror attacks in Nigeria – Trump issues travel ban / Islamic terror attacks west of our orphanage in Plateau State / Stop Nigerian oil exports until Muslim President protects Christians! / Work on Capitol Hill does make a difference / New needs in diaper program
The travel ban proclaimed by President Trump, and the addition of Nigeria to the “Special Watch List” of nations that violate religious freedom are both steps forward to confront the Sunni Muslim president of Nigeria who allows the attacks on Christians and actively suppresses the Shia Muslim minority. Still, much harsher action is needed by the American government.
