Christians Face New Threats Along Somali Border

[214] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Christians Threatened by Al Shabab.

Christians in the Kenya-Somalia border region are concerned about new threats and attacks by the Somali militant group al-Shabab. The militants released a video recently in which they threatened “infidels” coming into the region, calling the settlement of Christians in Muslim areas “Kenyan colonization.” Kenyan teachers and other professionals were withdrawn from two counties near the Somali border recently, and local churches in another county have stopped meeting. When Christian workers met to discuss a plan of action, however, they agreed to stay and continue their work despite the risk. Kenya’s economically challenged border region is populated with people of Somali origin, but the Kenyan government sends teachers, police and other government workers from elsewhere in Kenya to serve there. Many of these workers are Christians. Please pray for VOM partners working in the Kenya-Somalia border region.
