SOMALIA: Christians under continual threat.
Compass Direct News
Christians in Somalia continue to suffer from seemingly random attacks by Muslim extremists. Last week, two unidentified gunmen killed 27-year-old Aaban Anwar just a few blocks from his house in the Shabelle region. Although no one knows why Anwar was murdered, local Christians told VOM contacts that they believe the attack is related to Anwar's newfound Christian faith. His Muslim family, who were unaware of his Christian faith, buried him a few days later. In the nearby city of Jawhar, which is controlled by the Islamist sect al-Shabab, a 25-year-old Christian woman was kidnapped recently and has not been heard from since. Pray that God will give strength and patience to Christians living in this region.

Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
