A Pentecostal church in Eldoret was burned this weekend, and only smoldering ruins were left by Saturday. The pastor's nephew, Peter Ndungu, said the church was burned because his aunt was from Kibaki's Kikuyu tribe.

Terrified Kenyans, meanwhile, were pouring into camps for the displaced. The violence since the Dec. 27 election has forced 300,000 from their homes.

"Communities that have lived side by side, picking flowers or working in tea estates for generations, have been ripped apart and are joining a flood of Kenyans criss-crossing their country in their tens of thousands."

Nuns Abducted in Kenya near Somali Border*

Negotiations continue for the release of two nuns abducted by insurgent Somali militia at midnight on Nov. 9 from Kenya’s northern Mandera district near the Somali border. Pastor Alois Maina of Community Church in Mandera told Compass Direct News that the two nuns were being held in El-Haddah, Somalia, about 19 miles from the border. A pastor in Mandera who requested anonymity told Compass Direct News that Christian leaders were collaborating with village elders in both Kenya and Somalia to negotiate with the militia for the nuns’ release. “What we need at the moment is prayer,” said the pastor.

Kidnapped Nuns from Kenya are Released*

Two nuns who have been held captive in Somalia since last November have been freed.  Praise God!
 
In an early morning ambush, gunmen snatched Sister Olivero and Sister Caterina from the small north east Kenyan border town of El Wak taking them across the border into Somalia.  Father Bongiovanni Franco, who worked with the sisters, told Compass that the sisters are fatigued. “Their movement from one place to another, and living in house confinement most of their stay in Mogadishu, seems to have affected their health it was like a prison cell.”

Both of the nuns have worked in Kenya since the 1970s providing much needed medical and nutritional care to malnourished children, expectant mothers and the elderly.  We thank God for His protection and their safe release.  Read the full story>>

Kenyan Pastor Tortured at Somaliland Border

 

Pastor Abdi Persecuted Christians | Persecuted Church | Church Persecution
   Abdi was beaten for possessing a
Bible and told to deny his faith.

As he drove along the dusty road to the checkpoint, Pastor Abdi grew nervous. He knew that life for the tiny minority of Christians living across the border in Somaliland was tough.

He longed to visit these isolated believers, to encourage and pray with them. He knew the risks were high, and he was not sure what the next few days would hold.

But even before he’d cleared the border, Abdi was given a taste of just how hostile life can be for Christians in Somaliland. Finding his Bible, immigration officials took Abdi into custody.

“I was beaten up for having Christian materials,” Abdi recalls. “They told me to renounce my faith, but I refused. They were inhuman.”

The guards beat and taunted Abdi, telling him they’d already killed two Somali Christians… and that they would do the same to him.

After the beating, Abdi was incarcerated for nine hours before an Ethiopian friend came to his aid and secured his release. “They warned me never to dare step into Somaliland again,” Abdi says.

Please do pray for Abdi as he recovers from this ordeal. He and his wife receive a steady stream of threats from Muslim extremists in their city, and often have to go into hiding. And don’t forget to join Abdi in praying for those precious brothers and sisters he was trying to visit in Somaliland.

May the Lord use your prayers to assure them that they’re not forgotten, even as they remain so isolated.
