Letter to COIL from the Persecuted Church in Algeria
Dear COIL Organization,
I love Algeria, but she is being ripped apart by violence and strife. I know that your organization helps Christians all over the world who are in hiding because my predecessor left me your email address.
He was killed, but will you please continue to deliver the Bibles, medicine, and hymnals to the desert wadi as usual for me? The supplies save lives—physically and spiritually. Thank you for your help.
We also need a teacher who knows the Bible. We will provide a translator. Can someone in COIL help? I will pray for your safety and good health of your family, whoever you are.
Ahmed of Tizi-Ouzou
