04/01/2024 Kenya (International Christian Concern) – On Oct. 9, al-Shabab attacked Juhudi Village in Lamu West, Kenya – the fifth attack in five months. Six homes were invaded and set on fire. Villagers fled their homes and currently reside in IDP camps where security is guaranteed.

“My husband passed unexpectedly…We were contacted that he had been shot dead by al-Shabab terrorists while heading to Lamu. We were shocked and began to cry. I could not even comfort our two little girls who loved him deeply. This was a great loss to us as a young family and we wished that he could be with us longer. But we strongly believe that the Lord has His plans that cannot be thwarted. He does whatever glorifies him and what builds us in faith,” said Mary, the wife of Kaingu who was killed by al-Shabab terrorists.

ICC gave emergency aid to ten families left homeless after these attacks, including widows of martyrs. We also supplied school items, including tuition fees, for children wanting to pursue their education.

“We have been praying with strength to cope with this loss and we are seeing Him answer our prayers. We thank you for following up on our case and coming to visit. We also thank you for the food aid and financial assistance you have given to us,” said Mary.
