It is awesome how this woman showed forgiveness to her enemies.

For those who did not watch the video, here are some Cliff's Notes (summary):

In this video, David Curry from Global Christian Relief is in Northern Nigeria, a beautiful but troubled region where Christians are constantly reminded of the trauma and fear of violence from extremist groups. Nigeria has the unfortunate distinction of being the place where more Christians are killed than any other location in the world. Curry is there to meet with and pray for these brothers and sisters, as well as learn how they can be supported.

The video then includes a brief interview with a survivor of the violence in the region. She shares her story of being shot but finding joy and forgiveness in her heart despite the attempted elimination of Christianity in her region. When asked what message she would want to convey to the person who shot her, she expressed a desire for more joy and forgiveness.

The survivor's resilience and forgiveness in the face of such adversity are a source of inspiration, and Curry expresses his admiration for her strength. The overall message of the video is one of hope and perseverance in the face of violence and extremism, as well as the importance of supporting those affected by such situations.

Thanks, Alex!
You are welcome. I watched the video, and it brought tears to my eyes, as she loved her enemies with all her heart. Man, I wish my forgiveness to others was as strong as her levels of forgiveness. Jesus can help us with forgiving others.
