In Nigeria, my counterparts biggest challenge is to persuade Christians not to deny Christ at their death under the hands of Boko Haram.

So I know this is the right thing to do.
Let’s lay our lives down and give £1 a week. It doesn’t read right does it?!
Let’s give a £1 a week to help those who are laying their lives down. Neither does that!
Come on, we can do this. Surely we don’t know better!
