Most persecution in Kenya is driven by the Islamic extremist group, Al-Shabaab. Based in Somalia, they have killed Christians, destroyed churches and forced Christians to flee their homes. Converts from Islam to Christianity face severe pressure from their families, including forced marriages, harassment of children, and being disowned. In some places it can be dangerous to build or meet in a church.

Pray: Especially for Christians living in the northeast of Kenya, where persecution is more widespread.
