VOMC Creates Memorial for Martyred Nigerian Teacher

As reported by The Voice of the Martyrs last month, Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin, a Christian teacher at Government Day Secondary School in Gombe state was murdered by her own Muslim students on March 21. Christianah was survived by her husband Femi Oluwasesin and two young children; a son, Timilade and a daughter, Temiloluwa.

When they are old enough, Timilade and Temiloluwa will receive free education at the Stephen Center, a school in Abeokuta, Nigeria operated by VOMC and our partners that is specifically set up to educate and care for children whose parents have been killed for their faith.
I am pleased to announce that we are creating a memorial to Christianah at the Stephen Center. A new computer classroom will be dedicated to the memory of Christianah and her sacrifice for Christ. Funds will be raised to furnish the room with 60 computers and desks. Each computer/desk combo will cost approximately $750.00. If you could like to be a part of this special project, you can donate online and designate your gift to the Families of Martyrs Fund.
