Writing Campaign


Encourage Yana in Nigeria

Something beautiful happens when we realise the persecuted church and the free church are one. Write letters to encourage the suffering body of Christ as their stories of courageous Christianity inspire us to follow Jesus no matter the cost.

In 2014, Yana’s daughter, Rifkatu, was kidnapped from her Nigerian secondary school by Islamic extremist group, Boko Haram.

“We will wait for her to come back. No matter how long it takes,” Yana said. “We have placed our total trust and dependence on God, knowing He is the only one that can save them.”

Pray for the girls who have not yet come home and write to encourage Yana as she waits for any news of her daughter.

Please send cards and letters by 30 August to Open Doors Australia, 11/10 Gladstone Rd, Castle Hill, 2154
