He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

4 Christian Orphanage Workers Beheaded in Somalia

Screen shot 2010-08-17 at 11.05.20 AM The Christian Post is reporting that International Christian Concern is saying that four Christian orphanage workers were beheaded recently in Somalia.

Members of the Islamic extremist organization Al-Shabaab had kidnapped Fatima Sultan, Ali Ma'ow, Sheik Mohammed Abdi, and Maaddey Diil on July 27 from their coastal town of Merca, 56 miles from Mogadishu, and eventually beheaded the Christians after they refused to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ.

All of the Christians were given an opportunity to deny Christ and to return to Islam. They all refused and died as martyrs for Christ.

To add insult to injury, Somalia is refusing to give the bodies of the four Christians to their families because Somalia doesn't have cemeteries for infidels.


Please keep the families of these precious martyrs in your prayers. Please also pray for the other Christians in Somalia who are enduring persecution daily at the hands of Islamic terrorists.

Revelation 6:9) When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the witness they had borne. 10) They cried out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” 11) Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brothers should be complete, who were to be killed as they themselves had been.
