Thank you from Nigeria

In May 2007, The Voice of the Martyrs announced that we had set up a special memorial fund in honour of Christianah Oluwatoyin Oluwasesin, a Christian teacher at Government Day Secondary School in Gombe state was murdered by her own Muslim students on March 21, 2007. The memorial was designed to fund the establishment of a computer hall at the Stephen Center, a Christian school and orphanage operated by our partners in Nigeria. The funds raised were to furnish the hall with 60 computers and desks.

The hall was officially dedicated a few weeks ago with Christianah's husband and children present.  He recently wrote us:  "On behalf of my children and myself, we wish to thank entire VOMC for this wonderful gesture. Once again we appreciate you all."

The Voice of the Martyrs would like to thank everyone who contributed to this project.  Pray that this computer hall will be used by God to train the children who attend the Stephen Center (many of whom, like Christianah's children, have lost parents to persecution) in skills that they will use to expand God's kingdom in Nigeria.

The following are a couple of pictures from the dedication.  The little girl in the picture is Christianah's daughter.
