A pastor in Mombasa, Kenya, who was shot to death while praying at his church this weekend was still holding his Bible in his hand when church members found him, CBN News reports. Charles Matole had received threats after many converted to Christianity during revival services in a coastal area of the country. Members of his church, Vikwantani Redeemed Gospel Church, found him slumped in one of the church's plastic chairs on Saturday night with his Bible in his hand. "His skull was badly damaged," a church member said. On Sunday, another pastor, Ebrahim Kidata of East African Pentecostal Church, was strangled and left in some bushes 30 miles north of Mombasa.
