59 people's lives were taken. so far.

 

 

Here is part of the story.

Shortly after 12 p.m.: The attack began at Nairobi's Westgate Mall with bursts of gunfire and grenades.
• The shooting began downstairs and outside, then the gunmen came inside.
• At least five gunmen — including at least one woman — first attacked an outdoor cafe at the mall.
• Eight gunmen with scarves twisted over their faces fired at shoppers and then up at Kenyan police officers who were shooting down from a balcony as panicked shoppers dashed for cover.
• The gunmen entered the mall through the front entrance and through parking. Lights went out.
• Shoppers — expatriates and affluent Kenyans — fled in any direction that might be safe: into back corners of stores, back service hallways and bank vaults.
•Two squads of gunmen moved through the mall.
• The gunmen let Muslims go. 

 

 

This is so sad. Pretty Horrific. Just happen today. Some Canadians were hurt. American & a Few Aussies also,

I can't wait for the day when we will no longer hear of these reports.

Am in Kenya and it is very very sad to see so many innocent lives lost in the hands of these attackers. The death toll now stands at 68 with 175 injured, I haven't heard if there were any of our brothers n sisters hurt,but i know of a sister who was in the mall with her two kids and she managed to get out safe. The gunmen are believed to be between 10-15 in number and their ring leader is said to be a woman.

Everytime I hear of these mass killing, I think to myself - things surely can't get any worse then this- but satan always proves that thought wrong. Its so sad and I don't understand how people can't see that satan is the ruler of this evil world (1 John 5:19). I am so thankful I know about Jehovah and this wicked system will soon not be recalled to mind(Isaiah 65:17).I am excited to be able to share this good news with those willing to listen.

To our loving sister who replied from Kenya.   The woman who was one of the 10 or 15 killers, was also killed by the police and or the military police who were at the mall.   I saw the story from when it started (broadcasted) from the news media, but I couldn't bring myself to post it on here.  It is so terrible, all these mass killings.  Satan is on the rampage, like that roaring lion, seeking to devour someone.  Devour is like not chewing but swallowing whole!  He is doing a good job of devouring people who are veiled and who's hearts are blocked by a 5 foot thick wall.   And its like this, because "CHRISTENDOM" has made out that the "DEVIL" is not real.  If something doesn't exist, no one is going to believe that it does.  So it is with so many that Jehovah tries to reach out too who will not listen and see that there is something out there that is making the people go mad, a very very evil being - Satan/Devil.

Thanks for posting this Roselyne! Do you know this sister? Is she in your congregation or one nearby? We can't understand the terror she felt unless we have experienced something similar!

May Jehovah be with you Roselyne & our Sister. :grouphugs:

I was at the surgery yesterday. Many patients were talking about this.

They said how much more shocking the news has become.

The world has gone absolutelyy stark raving mad!  I remember at one assembly the brother saying how satan HATES humans, he hates us because Jehovah loves us.  Satans system displays his feelings, pushing people to act in this way. We need to help people to flee to God's kingdom, there's no other comfort in this world...

 

My question is, how on earth did she get her baby to lie still?!  It only lifted it's head after the security/police guy touched it several times...

Update on that white woman terrorist. 

 

The woman who was one of the 10 or 15 killers, was also killed by the police and or the military police who were at the mall.

 

The BBC reports that, the Kenyan government do not know for sure if she was killed during the battle in the Mall or that she escaped.  There is an Interpol World Watch for her capture "if" alive.   No one knows because there are still many bodies in the mall that they are trying to figure out who are the good people and who are the terrorists, including this terrorist woman.

Confirmed! just saw this on the Six 0'clock news. Singing one our songs is like a secret handshake. Love it.

Hopefully someone can find a recording of the six oclock news item. My mum just text me to say she saw them singing the kingdom song on TV. The interview was also repeated at about 8:45pm on channel 80 here in the UK. Just hope someone with playback can record it and put it up on here as I was busy catching some zzzz ready for work in a minute.
