Kenya: Christians Killed, Churches closed

A church in Kenya has been forced to close after 11 of its members were executed by militants.

St Andrew’s Anglican Church is in Mandera, on Kenya’s border with Somalia. On December 2nd this year militants killed 36 quarry workers, nine of whom were members of the church.

A week earlier, two church members were among 28 people killed during an attack on a bus. Both attacks were the work of Al-Shabaab, the Somalia based terrorist group, and in both cases, the attackers separated Muslims from non-Muslims. Those who could not recite a Muslim prayer were executed!

“We have closed the Church,” church leader Elijah Kinyua told Open Doors, “We will decide later on whether or not to re-open. But for now things are not good on the ground. Please pray for us.”

Please pray:-

For courage and protection for Christians in the Mandera area in Kenya

and

For wisdom for Kenya’s leaders in dealing with Al-Shabaab.
