Advocating for the suffering church

Jul 26, 2019 by

by Ernie Didot, Gafcon:

“80% of the people who are persecuted in the world today are Christian,”

stated Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali. This astounding statistic echoed throughout the week in meetings held around the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C. The U.S. State Department held the 2nd annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom around the world and Bishop Michael and Bishop Andudu were asked to participate and speak at two significant Ministerial side events to help shed light on the worldwide persecution of Christians. They and other Anglicans who have participated in past Gafcon events, like Faith McDonnell of the Institute of Religion and Democracy, were in attendance to be a voice for the suffering church.

“They have been starved, they’ve hidden in caves all because of their faith, and so I would introduce Bishop Andudu as one of the heros of the Sudanese Church who is speaking out for his people…”
– Faith McDonnell
