Missionary Safe after Attack on Embassy



Message from Southern District Missionary Rev. Frederick Reinhardt:

“I am safe and sound here in Ouagadougou, following the attack this morning on the French Embassy and a military center downtown. I have heard of 30 deaths and 100 or more injured, and I don’t know if the 30 dead includes the 6 assailants killed.”

We continue to keep him and all those affected by the attack in our prayers.  May God strength him as he continues to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and brings healing and hope.
