Syrian Christian Children are Suffering - Religious Freedom Coalition

The Christian children of Syria are suffering, not only those facing jihadists, but those that are in deep poverty in Lebanon. What happened?

The Christian children of Syria are suffering, not only those facing jihadists, but those that are in deep poverty in Lebanon. What happened? The programs I began in the Middle East were designed not only to help the beleaguered Christians materially but most importantly -- spiritually.

Christmas for Refugees despite COVID-19 - Religious Freedom Coalition

Christmas for Refugees events were still held during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read this article to learn how we kept the events safe, but still fully focused on Jesus.

There were no large Christmas for Refugees events this year with hundreds of children celebrating the birth of our Lord except in Syria and Nigeria. The events may have been toned down, but they were still about Jesus.

Giving Tuesday - Religious Freedom Coalition

Meet Blessing, a child at a Christian orphanage we support in Plateau State Nigeria. Blessing and so many children like her have lost parents from attacks by Muslim terror groups solely for the fact they are Christians. Religious persecution in Nigeria is worse than ever before!

Every year on Giving Tuesday, after days of giving thanks and shopping for deals, we are encouraged to give to charities and organizations who are working diligently to help others. This year, the Religious Freedom Coalition is working to help provide protein-based meals to every child in this Christian orphanage in Nigeria which has selflessly opened its doors to hundreds of children and is only able to provide them with two small meals of gruel every day. Learn more about how you can help children like Blessing by visiting www.ProteinForNigeria.com.

An orphanage we support in Plateau State, Nigeria has selflessly opened its doors to hundreds of children, many of whom have lost one or both of their parents to attacks by Muslim Fulani Herdsmen and the Boko Haram.

Christmas for Refugees Events Begin - Religious Freedom Coalition

Christmas for Refugees events have begun in Lebanon! Take a look at how we are holding safe events for the children this year through the article below.

Because of COVID-19, more Christmas events held this year in Lebanon for children than in the rest of the Middle East because the events will be smaller. In most instances children will walk through one at a time indoors, but because of local rules, some will be held outdoors.

Children at an orphnage in Nigeria have been able to have protein-based meals every day in 2019 and 2020 thanks to the generous supporters of the Religious Freedom Coalition. However, COVID-19 has created some road blocks as we look to continue this program into the new year...

Giving Tuesday - Religious Freedom Coalition

Christians in Nigeria are facing greater persecution than ever before. A Nigerian orphanage we support has selflessly opened its doors to children who have lost their parents from attacks by Muslim terror groups. However, this orphanage was only able to supply the children with gruel twice a day and protein on special occasions. In 2019, the Religious Freedom Coalition began providing protein-based meals to the children every day. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult to acquire the necessary funds to continue this program in 2021.

Giving Tuesday is quickly approaching! This year, we desperately need your help to continue providing these Christian children with protein-based meals. All donations given between now and the end of December 1st through the link below will count towards our Giving Tuesday totals!

Pakistan Kidnapping Nightmare - Religious Freedom Coalition

A growing number of virgin Christian girls are being kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam and enter forced marriages in Pakistan. We signed onto a letter of grievance to Chief Minister of Sindh asking that he order the law to be upheld and have a recent kidnapped girl be released from the illegal marriage and returned to her parents.

Last month I reported on Maria Shahbaz, a 14-year-old Christian girl in Pakistan who was abducted and forced to “marry” a Muslim man. This is not an isolated case!

Celebrating a small harvest at an orphanage we support in Nigeria! Last year, the Religious Freedom Coalition supplied the funds for a Christian orphanage in Nigeria to rent the land and buy the necessary materials to begin a farm. This farm produces various crops that feed the children and also gives them an opportunity for a lesson of self-responsibility as they work on and tend to the crops. We are very pleased with the success of the farm for the second year! Learn more about our work in Nigeria and the heavy persecution Christians at https://religiousfreedomcoalition.org/.

Christmas for Refugees Update - Religious Freedom Coalition

Our normal Christmas for Refugees events range from 100-700 children in the Middle East and Nigeria. The COVID-19 situation has forced us to arrange smaller and many more events at a higher cost... what does this mean for Christmas for Refugees 2020?

Our Christmas events normally range between 100 and 700 kids in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, and Bethlehem. But this year the Covid-19 situation will force me to arrange for smaller and therefore many more events.

Remembering 9-11 - Religious Freedom Coalition

September 11, 2001. We will never forget.

On the morning of September 11, 2001 Religious Freedom Coalition President, William J. Murray, was on his way to Washington, DC to participate in the Sudan Peace Act press conference. When he heard the news on the radio about the first plane crash, he knew it was not an accident. Once news came that a second plane hit, he made an immediate call to the White House. He would also just be passing the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the building.

On the first anniversary of these attacks, William J. Murray expressed his personal experience on this horrific day and his perspective on the events one year later. Click the link below to read this article from September 2002.

Each of us will remember exactly where we were and what we were doing at the moment we heard about the Islamic Jihad attack against our nation on September 11th. On that fateful day I was on my way to Washington, DC to participate in the Sudan Peace Act press conference to be held at the Rayburn Hou...

Helping persecuted Christians in the Middle East

The Religious Freedom Coalition operates programs in nations such as Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon to assist Christians who have been forced from their homes by radical Sunni Muslim groups such as the Islamic State, al-Nusra and al-Qaeda. Working with native ministries, the Religious Freedom Coalition funds the Diapers for Refugees and Christmas for Refugees programs. Assistance is also given to feeding programs and such specialty missions as summer camps for Christian children.

Recently programs have been expanded to help Christian in Nigeria who have been pushed from their villages. An orphanage in Plateau State just received funding for a new well and water tower from the Religious Freedom Coalition.

God bless the Christians in Nigeria, and the children, especially at Christmas in 2020
I am really excited to see my essay on “Empowering Local Voices: Using Community-Led Approaches to Prevent Violent Extremism” is now live! Please take a moment to hear from voices in Kenya and Nigeria, on their experiences working with religious leaders to prevent extremism. A big THANK YOU to the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change for making this possible.
I live in Wisconsin and our governor Tony Evers has cancelled Easter services for all of Wisconsin. Please join us in fighting to save our religious freedom!

I have free tickets to this amazing religious freedom conference being held in Richmond at the *beautiful* Jefferson Hotel! 🙂 Lunch included! Come the full day, half a day, whichever! Many members of Congress will be present, CEO of Samaritian’s Purse, and more. It will be amazing and a way to make our voice heard for those around the world. Let me know if you are interested! No limit to the amount of registrations either 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/events/1010572189067367/?ti=icl
