Pray for Kenya

Please pray for Kenya and specifically the Assemblies of God, there. I have been watching in shock as the news unfolds. I woke up this morning to a personal e-mail that there was a horrible attack urging me to pray. I am in regular contact with the missionaries there and just heard from them a few hours ago.


An AG church was attacked and at least 30-40 people burned to death. The death toll with the overall attacks today in Nairobi is at 250 so far. The pastor of the attacked AG church is badlly injured and they re trying to airlift him out to get treatment.


This is very personal to me as I know the people involved and the buildings/streets involved. As I'm watching the news, I recognize things.

By the way, I still have plans to go back to Kenya! Please pray that the unrest there ends quickly - that our precious people there are protected and that peace will quickly come. Selfishly I also pray it all ends soon so that nothing would hinder our going back there sooner rather than later...

Thank you for praying. If you want to read one of the newspaper articles about it, go here.

Thank you !its a shame that supporters of the losing candidate who also has the support of islamists are doing what they are doing including burning churches under the pretence that the election was stolen

I read about the attacks this morning, however I didn't realize that it was an AG church. It hits close to home. Praying for all involved.
