There is no safe place in Somalia for Christians to practice their faith. Almost all Christians come from a Muslim background. Community and family members persecute anyone who leaves Islam and converts who are discovered are usually killed. Even suspected Christians are persecuted. The government believes that there are no Somali Christians.
Pray: That God will continue to build His Kingdom in this part of the world and that through His Holy Spirit many Somalis will be drawn to Him.
