(Kenya) — Meanwhile, the war in Iraq has mission organizations on alert abroad. Africa is just one example. Grace Ministries International Sam Vinton says they’re thankful that, so far, their ministry in Kenya has felt only minor affects. “It has caused missionaries to be very careful where they go and being in groups. We do know that Rift Valley Academy, a children’s school in Nairobi, closed a week early and with the war they felt it would be good to have the children back with their parents.” Vinton is asking Christians to pray. “Pray to the Lord to strengthen our missionaries, strengthen the Christians in that area and for them to be a great testimony of love as well as those who are doing relief work, Christian groups in Jordan and other places that they will be able to show the love of Christ since most of the people have very, very negative feelings about us because that’s all they’ve ever heard.” Grace Ministries uses health care, education and evangelism to facilitate church planting around the world.
