TANZANIA: Pastor and Church under Threat

Date of Bulletin: 28 May 2014


A church in the predominantly Muslim area of Mafia, Tanzania, was burned down on Friday, 9 May 2014, just  hours before a scheduled prayer meeting. Radicals had threatened the pastor, Ombeni Omari, and the church  for the past two years. Pastor Omari, a Christian convert from Islam, escaped to Dar es Salaam with his wife and three children after learning of the attack. He had founded the almost 60-member church, the only Christian church in the area, and nearly all of its members were converts from Islam. Although the church building was destroyed, Pastor Omari said he will return to the area because the work he was called to is not yet finished.

Please Pray!

  • Please pray for Pastor Omari, his wife and children, as they seek to continue in ministry.
  • Pray for the believers in Mafia, that they would be able to remain strong in their faith and continue to gather for worship and church services.
  • Pray that more people would come to know Jesus.
