Our brother in Kenya fears for his life 

Pastor ‘Jeremiah’ has put his life on the line to serve the Somali church in Kenya. He’s long faced threats – but now his life is in real danger.

Please pray that God will protect Jeremiah, a courageous brother in Christ who leads one of the Somali cell churches that our Kenyan partner supports.

Pastor Jeremiah reports that Islamist extremists have made new attempts to kill him and his family – and have increased the bounty on his head. 

One of the groups targeting him is Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based group responsible for much of the recent violence against Christians on Kenyan soil. In the past, Jeremiah has shared testimonies about his faith on the radio and internet.

In recent years, his family have had to move house regularly, to avoid detection. With each move, they lose friendships, ministry contacts and rental deposits. Their current accommodation is ‘less than ideal’.

Pastor Jeremiah says he finds it hard to rest and is greatly concerned for his family.
  • Please lift Jeremiah and his family to God and ask Him to bless and protect them, so they find refuge and rest in Him (Psalm 91:4).
  • Pray for wisdom and discernment for Jeremiah: he wants to serve God and does not want to spend the rest of his life on the run.
  • Ask God to meet the family’s financial needs: his older daughter is in secondary school and the family are struggling to pay her fees.
  • Pray that God will strengthen the faith of people in the fellowship Jeremiah leads – and of Somali Christians in Kenya more generally. Pray that they will put their trust in God and receive His peace, amid mounting persecution.

UPDATE
Continue to pray for our Pakistani sister Asia Bibi, who is awaiting a new date for the Supreme Court to hear her final appeal against a death sentence for ‘blasphemy’. The judge whose withdrawal forced the hearing to be adjourned on October 13 has since resigned from his post. No reason was given for Judge Iqbal Hameed ur Rehman’s resignation – but it is widely interpreted as proof of the power of extremists to influence and intimidate the judiciary.
