Last Sunday, Islamic militants connected to the al-Shabaab terrorist network in Somalia attacked a Christian church in the Kenyan city of Mombasa. According to reports, the militants attacked the unarmed worshipers with automatic weapons, killing six and wounding many others. The Kenyan authorities have made it a priority to bring these attackers to justice declaring all people who attack unarmed worshipers are devils. Please pray for justice to be done in this case.
On February 2nd, a church leader from a church in the costal city of Mombasa, Kenya was killed by suspected Muslim extremists. Friends and witnesses say the pastor was killed because he was preaching Christian messages too close to a mosque in Mombasa.

According the Britain's Minister for Faith Christian communities across the world, particularly in the Middle East, are in danger of becoming extinct due to targeting by Islamic extremists. From Egypt to Syria to Pakistan, Christian communities across the Middle East and South Asia have come under attack as extremists gain influence. In Pakistan, a church of 600 attendants was attacked by two suicide bombers shortly following a Sunday service. Around 130 Christians were killed as a result of this attack. Scenes of destruction like this are being faced by Christian in many of Christianity's ancient homelands. Please pray for these persecuted brothers and sisters.
Christian communities across the Middle East and South Asia continue to endure ever increasing levels of persecution and religious intolerance. This has lead to the decline of many Christian populations in these countries. In Syria, one of Christianity's oldest homes, the Christian population has declined by 25 %. As the world continues to sit in watch this injustice continue, please remember to pray for these communities.
