A radio ministry in Nigeria has reportedly convinced a former jihadist to convert to Christianity.
Breaking Christian News reports a Muslim extremist tuned into The Tide radio station and accepted the ministry’s message. The former jihadist called the number at the conclusion of the radio program and accepted Christ.
The Tide’s director Don Shenk said, "Tragically, terrorism is an all-too-present reality for Nigerians today. But even as Boko Haram carries out unspeakable violence, demolishes villages and upsets national elections, the terror group does not have the power to shake the heart-peace that the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings. The Tide ministry has been sharing the Gospel in Nigeria since 2009, and we've seen its power not only to bring peace and transformation but even to rescue those who were themselves once committed to jihad."
The radio station continues to spread a message of hope and peace amidst Boko Haram’s continued brutally as well as political turmoil in the nation.
