A Tanzanian Pastor

A Tanzanian pastor who had been receiving threats from the nearby mosque was attacked on the night of 14-15 May by men who broke into his home and slashed his head, making a wound two inches deep. They took nothing from the house, so the police theory that the attackers were burglars is not convincing. His older brother, who is more senior in the church, has been facing persecution and intense pressure from the Tanzanian authorities for opposing the kadhi court bill (see above), including a court case against him. Pray for Pastor Samson- still unconscious at the time of writing- that he will fully recover from his injuries. Pray for protection for his wife and family; the threats have continued since the attack.
