We heard this morning that in Mombasa near the law courts that the police killed a young man because they were rioting to get into the courts to take one of their fellow Republicans. This is a group of local tribes trying to separate from the rest of Kenya along the coast. Things seem to be quiet now.
Last week late in the night at the local market 4 guards of m-pesa were hacked to death. This is less than a mile from us. No problems in our area. We pray this will all settle down.
Please pray for our travel back to USA on May 5th for our year of furlough. We will be traveling to raise funds to return to KENYA. You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like for us to come for a meeting. We need pledge support and also cash offering to return.
