As you probably have heard there was a siege in a upscale mall in town. We are safe and sound, this was on the other side of town from us but as AIM, SIM, and the US Embassy have advised we are spending most of yesterday and today on our compound. Many other shopping centers have closed as precautions. We ask for prayers for all those injured mentally/physically and for the families of those who have lost their lives. The numbers of those who dies has risen to 69 and injured 175 at the moment. Al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for this brutal attack as repercussion for Kenya invading Somalia. Please also pray for no revenge attacks to a Somali part of town that would only further injure more innocent lives.
