Sierra Leone: More Muslims Converting to Christianity

By  | 

In the past year, more Muslim leaders in Sierra Leone have converted to Christianity than ever before, according to a VOM partner.

“My heart is overflowing with joy, by taking a brief reflection on what the Lord has accomplished,” he said. Evangelists in the area, all of whom are converts from Islam, have received support and tools that enable them to go farther for ministry and to visit converts more often.

They are using motorcycles and bicycles to reach new communities, and they are providing the communities with solar and crank radios that broadcast Christian radio programs. “Most evenings brings a group of new converts together to listen,” the VOM partner said.

“The result and outcome of these tools cannot be overemphasized.” Praise God for these new Christian converts in Sierra Leone.

The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organization dedicated to assisting the persecuted church worldwide. VOM was founded in 1967 by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, who was imprisoned 14 years in Communist Romania for his faith in Christ. His wife, Sabina, was imprisoned for three years. In the 1960s, Richard, Sabina, and their son, Mihai, were ransomed out of Romania and came to the United States. Through their travels, the Wurmbrands spread the message of the atrocities that Christians face in restricted nations, while establishing a network of offices dedicated to assisting the persecuted church.
