Will Kenya Remain Christian?

A senior Kenyan Christian leaders explains, the aim of the Somali Islamist group Al-Shabaab for Kenya (a nation which is 80% Christian) is to make it ungovernable, to make the Church fearful, and to prevent Christians from doing outreach in Muslim areas of the country.  Others report that Christians are indeed traumatised by the violence of Al-Shabaab militants and have started to hide their crosses or other Christian symbols, to travel in unmarked vehicles instead of vehicles painted with Christian wording.  They are afraid of discussing Islam.  The government has banned all-night Christian meetings because of security concerns.  “Will the next generation find a church in Kenya?” asked another senior Christian leaders earlier this year.  Pray that Kenyan Christians will heed the Lord’s command to Joshua, “Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged (Joshua 1:9).”
