Muslims fill Kenyan church to pray for their children

MOMBASA, Kenya — John Chege was surprised to see his church filled with Muslims on a recent Sunday. The minister for the Ujamaa Church of Christ in the Muslim-dominated city of Mombasa, Kenya, had planned a special prayer service for eighth-graders — as did churches across the country — in advance of the national exams Kenyan students take for admittance to high school.

Muslim students and their parents attended — and outnumbered the Christian students, Chege said. “When I called all students to come forward for prayers, the Muslims came also, and we prayed for them. This was so encouraging.”
