cross broken shatteredA close call at a church in Kenya has Christians there concerned about their safety.

International Christian Concern reports that a church was targeted with an IED late last month in Mandera County near the Somalia border.  It exploded but no one was killed as the IED missed its mark. 

ICC's Nathan Johnson says the Kenyan government needs to protect Christians in the area from al-Shabaab, the Islamic terrorist group in nearby Kenya, by increasing security on the border.

"And protecting Christians specifically, because that's who's being targeted up in these areas," he syas.

Johnson also tells OneNewsNow that many Christians are scared to go to church because of a "constant fear" of the terrorist group attacking.

He asks for Christians to pray for believers in Kenya.
