A senior Republican politician is among five people wounded after a gunman opened fire at a baseball game in the US.
Steve Scalise was playing with fellow Congressmen and staff when a gunman peppered the baseball pitch with 50 bullets, according to eyewitnesses.
Congressman Scalise, the majority whip in the House of Representatives, was reportedly hit in the hip and police officers were also wounded, according to reports.
Donald Trump tweeted to say the Congressman was “badly injured but will fully recover”.
Representative Brad Wenstrup, an army veteran who was at the scene, reportedly said: “I felt like I was back in Iraq but without my weapon.”… read more
On April 2, 2015 148 people were killed in the al Shabaab attack on the Garissa University in north-eastern Kenya. Frederick Gitonga, the former chairman of the Fellowship of Christian University Students (FOCUS), miraculously survived the attack. Looking back, he tells Open Doors workers he remained standing thanks only to the grace of God and the prayers of supporters and for the purpose of preaching the gospel.
In the lead up to the April 2nd Garissa University massacre, rumors of an imminent attack circulated. “Sometimes we would hear people saying: ‘You guys will be attacked, terrorists are planning to come and bomb you’.” As a result some students left the university.
The night before the attack, Fred stayed up until 2 AM counselling a Christian friend. The next morning he was so tired he slept in. It was very unusual for him to miss the 5AM prayer session.
That meeting was the attackers’ first target. They killed all 22 people present…. read more

George Soros ‘Has Ruined the Lives of Millions of Europeans’ Says Hungarian Prime Minister
“Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán delivered a stinging speech in the European Parliament Wednesday, asserting Hungary’s right to self-governance and defending its actions regarding immigration and against American financial speculator George Soros.
“I know that the power, size and weight of Hungary is much smaller than that of the financial speculator, George Soros, who is now attacking Hungary,” Orbán said.
“Despite ruining the lives of millions of European with his financial speculations, being penalized in Hungary for speculations, and who is an openly admitted enemy of the euro, he is so highly praised that he is received by the EU’s top leaders,” he said.”… read more
By Pastor Paul, Director of Bibles for Mideast
My risen Lord Jesus Christ has saved my life once again, and I praise and thank God for His unspeakable grace! Certainly I am not worthy of it.
The Assembly of Loving God (ALG) Church of Bibles for Mideast called for 21 days fasting and prayer from March 13 to April 2. As that drew to a close, more than 3000 former Muslims were baptized in many of our churches in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The Lord enabled me to baptize many people during this time.
About three weeks ago, I was changing my wet clothes after an early-morning baptism service for one of our churches. Suddenly, militants began stoning me and our group. My head was severely injured and bloodied, and a number of others sustained injuries as well.
Believers rushed me to the nearest hospital. An examination showed serious damage to my skull, so I was transferred to a specialist hospital for immediate surgery. Authorities there, however, refused to do surgery before receiving payment. My poor believing friends somehow managed to comply… read more
Christians in Sydney, Australia, are being advised to hide their crosses after an Arabic-speaking gang shouting “F*** Jesus!” attacked a couple on a train while transport officers looked on from a “safe space” and did nothing.
The Sydney-based Daily Telegraph – a News Corp outlet unrelated to the Telegraph Media Group newspaper of the same name – reports the couple were attacked while riding the train through “Muslim enclaves” in south-west Sydney.
Mike, who asked for his surname to be withheld for fear he might be targeted, said that four men of Middle Eastern appearance ripped his cross from his neck, stomped on it, and rained kicks and punches on his face, back, and shoulders. Two women attacked his girlfriend when she tried to protect him.
Five uniformed transport officers watched the attack take place but failed to intervene, Mike claimed, leaving the police to meet the train at a later station…. read more
