KENYA: Six Killed and 15 Injured in Church Attack


 Date of Bulletin: 9 April 2014


Three unidentified, armed men attacked the Joy of Christ Church near Mombasa on Sunday, March 23, killing Pastor Philip Msasa and five others. The gunmen entered the church during Sunday morning service  and opened fire on worshipers.

In addition to the six believers who were killed, 15 others, including some children, were hospitalized with  gunshot wounds. The men later attempted to attack the nearby Redeemed Church, but security guards prevented them from entering.

The attack on the church came one day after Internal Security Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Lenku warned a radical Islamic imam to stop inciting youth to violence. On Feb. 2, police stormed the Masjid Musa  mosque and arrested several youth after finding materials linking them to radicalization.

One week later, six bombs, an AK-47, ammunition and grenades were found in a vehicle in Mombasa. The situation is very worrisome for Christians, who have been the main target of these attacks.

Please Pray!

  • Please pray that God will stop the infiltration of radical Islam in Kenya.
  • Please pray that He will protect the churches and believers there and give them a stronger burden to reach the lost with the gospel.
  • Pray for the injured and the families who have lost loved ones.

Kenya is listed on Voice Of the Martyrs' prayer map as a Monitored Nation - an area being closely monitored by VOM because of a trend toward increased persecution of Christians.
