Westgate Mall Seige is Over

After 4 long days, the siege on Westgate Mall is finally over.  It has been a tense few days as we waited for resolution.

61 civilians died
7 security forces were killed
5 hostages were killed
11 suspects are in custody
175 people were hospitalized for injuries
65 people are still missing

Tonight 3 floors of the 4 story mall collapsed, likely leaving many bodies in the rubble.

Tomorrow begins 3 days of mourning for the nation.

Please keep praying for Kenya.

Here is a blog post that helps guide Christians in a proper response to such attacks.  I pray that this nation will respond well to this tragedy.

Thank you for your prayers and for your many expressions of concern.
