Pray for Naomi, Whose Husband Was Killed by Islamists

[283] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Naomi.

Christian widows whose husbands were killed in Islamist attacks are gradually returning to their coastal Kenyan homes. After an attack in June 2014 in which Islamists went door to door killing Christians, Naomi and her four children fled to her parents’ home in another village. They spent a difficult year there grieving and healing, but Naomi then decided to return to her farm. With encouragement and help from VOM, she now manages the farm with help from her two sons, ages 11 and 8. In a good season the farm sustains them, but its productivity depends on weather conditions. Pray for Naomi as she raises her children and continues to grieve the loss of her husband.
