Pray for Pastor Mustapha Krireche, Whose Church Was Vandalized

Algeria

The Light Church, located on the Algerian coast, was vandalized on Jan. 7 or Jan. 8. Pastor Mustapha Krireche said vandals stole furniture, worship equipment and money, valued at about $8,000. The group left graffiti on the church walls reading “Allah Akbar!” (Allah is great!). Church leaders filed a complaint, but police have no suspects. This is not the first time the 100-member church has faced threats from Islamists.
