Some Really Sad News from Kenya. (Revised) A retired PC(USA) missionary and her daughter were murdered near Nairobi last week.

Our pastor Van went to seminary and is good friends with a missionary in Pakistan, Paul Stock, who is the nephew of the older woman who was killed and the cousin of the younger. At the deacon's meeting at our church last night that Carol attended, Van said that he received an email from Paul Stock telling him of this loss. Paul wrote, among other things, of the great love that the women who were killed had for the Kenyan people. (Van also said that Paul may be visiting our church this summer.)

Mary said that the younger woman was an RVA graduate. We pray for their families, and for the safety of other missionaries.
