Kenya violence

OpenDoors reports that at least 18 people died, while 66 were wounded, in the north eastern town of Garissa in Kenya on Sunday 1 July. Assailants wearing balaclavas simultaneously burst into the Africa Inland Church (AIC) and Lady of Consolata Catholic Church, shooting at worshippers and detonating grenades. Two policemen guarding the AIC were among those killed – four of the injured remain in critical condition in Nairobi hospitals. For story click here.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” Romans 8:35

Action: Open Doors asks that you pray for the Lords comfort for the bereaved and injured and for the OpenDoors workers in the country as they investigate the attacks and determine a response.
