Christian Solidarity International (CSI) announced that their partnership with Salem Media’s the Eric Metaxas radio show during December generated enough donations to free another 800 slaves in the Sudan. For 2021, CSI liberated over 1500 Sudanese slaves after years spent in bondage.

Those rescued from slavery by CSI receive survival kits to help them rebuild their lives. Supplies include a goat, a tarp for shelter, a cooking pan, a water canister, a mosquito net, a blanket, a handheld sickle, fishing hooks and a ration of sorghum, a local nutrient-rich staple food. They also receive medical treatment, most commonly for the symptoms of malaria and lung infections.

Dave Spiker, host of Insight for Living with Chuck Swindoll is ready to pass the baton of responsibilities to “the next generation.” As a result, the ministry is seeking a qualified personality to provide this service to Insight for Living and its audience.
