Attack on Westgate Mall in Nairobi

Most of you have probably seen the news about the violent attack at Westgate Mall in Nairobi.  The attack is ongoing as there are currently 30 hostages still in the mall with 10-15 gunmen.  59 people have died and there are 175 hospitalized with injuries.  This has been going on for more than 25 hours as it began mid-day Saturday.

Our family is fine.  Westgate Mall is a mall that we frequent when we shop for groceries, but we didn't venture to Nairobi this weekend as we had activities at the kids' school on Saturday morning.

Please pray for this ongoing situation, for the families of those who have died and for healing for those injured.  We pray also for healing and protection for Kenya.

We are so thankful for your prayers.
