Persecution Update for February 2010: Somalia

somaliaSomalia continues to rank high among countries that persecute Christians.  Last month al Qaeda terrorists murdered Mohammed Ahmed Ali, a 41-year-old underground church pastor.  Ali had left Islam to convert to Christ nine years earlier.  His wife was also threatened with death, and she fled to Kenya.  Last year Islamic militants beheaded two young boys because their Christian father refused to give information about other Christians.   As these believers join the ranks of those of “whom the world is not worthy,” pray for the Gospel to rescue more Somalians out of Islam.
