A Christian community leader in Somalia was shot to death earlier this month by members of the Islamic extremist group al-Shabab while closing his pharmacy for the evening.
‘Abdikhani Hassan’ was shot seven times in the chest by two young men who approached him with handguns. The respected community leader was both a pharmacist and director of a community clinic.
Authorities have arrested several men in connection with the murder and continue to investigate. Abdikhani leaves behind a pregnant wife and five children.

- Ask the Lord to bring the perpetrators to justice in this life and true repentance for the next.
- Pray for our brothers and sisters in Somalia, who have counted the cost to follow Christ.
