Christian man murdered in Somalia
A convert from Islam to Christianity was murdered on July 20 in the city of Mahadday Weyne, Somalia by members of al-Shabaab, a militant group with ties to Al-Qaeda, according to a July 20 report from Compass Direct. Mohammed Sheikh Abdiraman, who had been a Christian for 15 years and was the leader of a group of underground believers, was shot at approximately 7:00 a.m. Abdiraman is survived by two children, ages 10 and 15. His wife died three years ago due to illness.
Ask God to comfort and guide Abdiraman's children in this difficult time. Pray that increased persecution will result in increased boldness among believers in Somalia (Acts 4:29-31). Consider posting a prayer for Somali Christians on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall.

The link isn't working I went to the site at www.persecution.com to look for the article, but I can't find this story yet. Did you get it from your newletter? I don't have any new emails from them.
Oh, well. I will pray anyways. Thank you for posting this. When I went to go look for this article, I saw so many other tragic stories. I haven't been to that site in a long time and I needed a reminder to pray for my suffering brothers and sisters. Here is another one you guys can pray for. Two boys were beheaded by Islamic extremists in Somalia because their father refused to give them information about an underground church. Link
I can't imagine how that father feels. May Jesus comfort Him.
