Christians in Tanzania are facing escalating violence with many attacks on churches, resulting in damage to the buildings and injuries to the Christians. In the north-western town of Bukoba, Christians have been facing attack since October 2014, with seven churches already burnt down this year. During one of the worst of these attack one pastor was killed and a youth minister was seriously injured. Barnabas Fund is helping the window and children of the martyred pastor and also funding medical care for injured youth minister. Pray that those affected by these attacks will be enable to consider it pure joy to face such trials (James1:2).
