On the night of July 5, 2014, Islamist al-Shabaab militants attacked Prisila’s village of Hindi, Kenya. “They pulled my husband out from the sitting room by force, and then they slaughtered him,” she recalled. “We got scared by this excruciating act. Then my son, who was in another room, tried to escape, but was gunned down outside as he tried to flee.” The extremist Muslim attackers burned the entire village to ashes, widowing nine women and leaving dozens of children fatherless. The blazes also destroyed the church and the house where Pastor Elizabeth Odipo lives. ICC partnered with Lifeway Mission International to rebuild 15 homes and provide plowing and planting assistance on one acre of land, which will feed six families. Please pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Hindi to cling to the Lord in the midst of this severe persecution.
