Hey all. Just got this, this morning.
While I don’t like to be the bearer of bad news, I couldn’t help but pass this one on. Please send out a prayer.  Thanks,



Tragedy in Kenya
25/02/2011 2:32 pm

YWAM is devasted to report that around 1am on Friday, 25th February,
armed robbers broke into an orphanage operated by a YWAM team in Athi
River, Kenya, 50 km outside of Nairobi. A Dutch couple, Ebel and Lora
Kremer, managed the orphanage. In the attack, Ebel was shot and killed
in front of his wife and their two small children. A night watchman
was also injured in the shooting.

The orphanage shares a property with a YWAM community which is
preparing to host a Discipleship Training School graduation this
evening and has recently received students for a new DTS. Member care
professionals from YWAM Africa’s trauma team and other YWAM leaders
are on the scene to provide support and care.

Your prayers are requested for the family, staff and students of YWAM
Athi River.
