One day, gunmen attacked churches in Kenya. People suspected that the attackers were member of al-Shabab, a group of violent Muslims from across the border in Somalia.
Some youth in Kenya and their leaders decided to help the police guard churches to stop new attacks. The youth are Muslims! They do not follow Jesus, but they do not like the violent Muslims attacking churches either.
Thank God for sending help to the churches. Pray that Christians in Kenya will be good examples to the Muslims so the Muslims will want to find out more about Jesus. Pray that al-Shabab and other groups like them will give up their violent ways and follow the Prince of Peace.
