Kenya: At Least Two Children Attending Sunday School Killed After Islamists Throw Grenade Into Nairobi Church

Mark 10:14, “… ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.'”

MWC News – “At least two children have been killed and two others wounded when a hand grenade was allegedly thrown into a church in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, police officials say.

Moses Nyakwama, the city’s police chief, confirmed the injuries in the attack on Sunday.

He said that police suspected the cause of the explosion was a grenade.

Charles Owino, a deputy police spokesman, said that the attack at St Polycarp’s church occurred on Juja Road, in the eastern part of the city.

The grenade exploded, spraying the children with shrapnel.

Blood-stained children’s jackets and shoes lay scattered on the floor, surrounded by remnants of metal walls that were broken and twisted by the force of the explosion.

‘The children who attend this service are aged between six and 10… we usually divide them according to their ages,’ said Livingstone Muiruri. ‘They had just started the morning session when the explosion occurred.’

‘We were in the main church so we all ran there to assist the kids,’ he said.

Janet Wanja was just entering the church when the blast shook the building.

‘I heard a loud explosion and then heard kids screaming,’ she said. ‘I am traumatised by what I saw, kids with injuries and blood all over. ‘Why are they attacking the church?’

Al-Shabab suspected

‘We suspect this blast might have been carried out by sympathisers of al-Shabab,’ said Owino. ‘These are the kicks of a dying horse since, of late, Kenyan police have arrested several suspects in connection with grenades.'” Read more.

    The courage and strength they are showing amazes me. How many in this country would attend church if this happened on a frequent basis here. May God show himself to them, their reward will be great, when they hear the words “Well done my good and faithful servant.” Give them comfort, supernatural courage and strength, and angels to guide and help them. Jesus gave a clear warning to this when he said “it would be better if a millstone were tied around their neck and thrown into the sea, than to hurt one of these little ones. And at the judgement he also tells them since you did this to one of my least, you did it to me, away from me ye workers of iniquity I know you not. God help them.
