Christians in Nigeria are spreading the gospel among Muslims groups — even groups that persecute Christians.
Fulani people in Nigeria are mostly Muslims, but some are coming to Christ. Others have attacked Christians and churches.
The photo in this post shows a Fulani leader and his three wives with MP3 players given to them by VOM contacts. The MP3 players play audio versions of the Bible. The wives requested that they each receive their own player.
Note: Muslim tradition allows men to have as many as four wives. A missionary who served among Muslims for many years said that no Muslim with more than one wife ever told him that they had a peaceful marriage. Instead, “they have stated how difficult it is to create a climate of love and trust within the family.” Source: Understanding Muslim Teachings and Traditions, by Phil Parshall.
Pray that the Fulani people who listen to the Bible will decide to follow God’s will and trust in Christ.
