Kresta in the Afternoon – June 18, 2021 – Hour 2

Guest host Dr. Matthew Bunson discusses Christian persecution in Nigeria and Ethiopia’s Tigray region with Ed Clancy. Then Steve Ray joins him to talk about fathers in the Gospels.


Christian Persecution in Ethiopia and Nigeria

Right now, Christians are fighting for their lives in countries like Nigeria and Ethiopia. It can be easy to forget about them simply because of their distance to us, but they are our brothers and sisters in Christ and need our prayers. Ed Clancy from Aid to the Church in Need joins us to talk about the plight of Christians in Nigeria and Ethiopia’s Tigray region.
