VOM Update

On Oct. 9, a group of people with machetes attacked a group of Christian men
at a prayer meeting in Bukoba, Tanzania, killing two. Dioniz Ng'wandu, 31, left
behind a wife and two small children, ages 4 and 2. Another man, Temistores,
25, was hospitalized with injuries sustained as he escaped. The church is
located in a Muslim-dominated area and is still under construction, with no
windows or doors. Church members have been threatened by Islamic
extremists, who want to run Christians out of the area.
