Christians Devastated by Torching of Dozens of Churches in Niger – but Then THIS Happened!



Earlier this month, dozens of churches were torched in the African country of Niger. According to Wikipedia, Niger is 99 percent Muslim and only 0.4 percent Christian. Christians were specifically targeted for attack because of Charlie Hebdo, although what that has to do with Christians in Niger is beyond me:

It was Jan. 16 and by the week’s end Muslims had set fire to at least 45 churches and looted the homes of a number of Christian ministers. Ten people were killed. Followers of Christ fled for the lives.

The protests were over the cartoons lampooning the Prophet Muhammad that were published by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo.

But what happened next was nothing short of miraculous:

The following day Neal and his wife ventured outside to survey the ruins of the church house.

“It was still smoking and warm with ashes,” he told me. “As we were looking through the rubble my wife came across the Bible.”

The Bible was charred but not destroyed, and it caused a stirring in the hearts of the Christian couple.

“It was an emotional moment as you see your church in ashes,” Neal said.

I think we already know the answer to that question.
