Hungary’s financial aid to rebuild Christian churches that were destroyed by refugees

Published

on

Tristan Azbej, Hungary’s State Secretary for the Aid of Persecuted Christians and for the Hungary Helps Program, has pinned to the top of his Twitter account a Tweet from May 22, 2018 that says “Hungary is a Christian democratic country with a dedicated government program to help Christians that are persecuted for their faith all around the World. Follow my humanitarian mission from the crisis zones of the East to the diplomatic fora of the West.

Azbej has stayed true to his word to help persecuted Christians and in a Tweet made on Friday, promised to help Greece.

“As part of the HungaryHelps Program, we’re contributing USD 30000 to the refurbishment of churches vandalized by immigrants on the Greek island of Lesbos. I hope our messages about protecting Christian heritage & about illegal migration get through,” he said.

Hungarian Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office, Gergely Gulyás.

“This year, migrants on the island have attacked several sacred places, thereby protesting against the fact that the Greek authorities are preventing their illegal migration to Europe’s more remote countries. In consequence of acts of vandalism, several liturgical objects and the furnishings of churches have been seriously damaged,” the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement published on his web page.

Most interestingly though is that the Prime Minister revealed that his country’s initiative to help restore churches on Lesvos was initiated by the small Greek minority, numbering only about 4,000 people in Hungary who constitute one of the thirteen officially recognized ethnic minorities in Hungary.

“On behalf of the Greek national minority in Hungary, the Self-Government of the Greeks of Hungary contacted the Prime Minister’s Office in order to seek assistance with the restoration of chapels. Hungary firmly stands up for protecting freedom of religion and Christian culture. We hold that help must be taken where there is trouble, rather than bringing trouble here,” the statement continued.

“The donation for the renovation of churches on the island of Lesvos will be handed over as part of the Hungary Helps Programme by Minister of State for Helping Persecuted Christians and the Implementation of the Hungary Helps Programme Tristan Azbej and Minister of State for Church and National Minority Affairs Miklós Soltész through the Self-Government of the Greeks of Hungary,” the statement concluded.

Lesvos, as an island of only 90,000 citizens, has been one of the most hardest hit areas of Greece. The Moria migrant camp hosts 20,000 illegal immigrants alone, and it is not known exactly how many illegal immigrants are in the other camps on the island.

As a deeply religious society, these attacks on churches are shocking to the Greek people and calls to question whether these illegal immigrants seeking a new life in Europe are willing to integrate and conform to the norms and values of their new countries.

These continued attacks has ultimately seen the people of Lesvos, who were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2016, become increasingly frustrated by the unresolved situation that has restricted and changed their lives as they no longer feel safe on their once near crime-free island.

Iranian Christian Arrested For The Third Time

Published

on

Iran – Mary Mohammadi, an Iranian Christian convert and human rights activist, was arrested again on January 18. Mohammadi has been in and out of prison for her identity as a Christian and outspoken activist.

Most recently, she was arrested by the “morality police”, claiming that she improperly wore her hijab, her pants were too tight and her coat was unbuttoned. Iranian officials previously charged her with the same accusations. She spent six months in jail for being a member of a local house church, and also spent time in prison in April 2020 after participating in a peaceful protest.

Despite her good relationship with her employer, she has also been unable to return to work since her release last year. According to Mohammadi, it is clear that her employers receive pressure from intelligence officials to not take her back. Her life has now been interrupted several times for her identity as a Christian, with the Iranian government not allowing her to return to her normal life, even after serving her undeserved prison sentences.

Woman Leaves Islam After Having Visions of Jesus, Attacked by Husband

Published

on

Kenya – On January 13, 2021, Mansitula Buliro experienced visions of Jesus, calling for her to follow Him, amid her Muslim evening prayers. Her husband believed her to be possessed, but she was curious to know who Jesus was.

Buliro inquired about her visions to her Christian neighbor for hours, praying. She knew Jesus was real and put her complete faith in Him. Suddenly a neighbor knocked on the door. He discovered Buliro praying as a Christian and left immediately.

She returned home to an angry husband. “I kept quiet. [He] started slapping and kicking me indiscriminately. I then fell. He went inside the house and came back with a knife and started cutting my mouth, saying, ‘Allahu akbar,’ (God is greater), I am punishing you to not speak about Yeshua in my house. This is a Muslim home!”

Her screams, along with her children’s cries, alarmed the neighbors who stopped the attack. He divorced her on the spot and threatened her he would kill her if she did not leave.

Buliro miscarried her 13-week-old baby as a result of the attack. According to Morning Star News, she lives with a Christian family.
