Pastor Beheaded by Religious Extremist 03/07/2013


Mathayo Kachili, a Pentecostal pastor of the Assemblies of God church in Buseresere, Tanzania (a church affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of God of Canada), was beheaded when a group of religious extremists attacked Christians at the church on Monday, February 11.

"Escalating hostility and violence toward Christians in various places in Africa causes us grave concern for our brothers and sisters, and especially for our pastors," states Mike McClaflin, AG World Missions regional director for Africa. "Our prayers are with the family of Pastor Mathayo Kachili as well as the other pastors of the Pentecostal Assemblies of God in Tanzania and missionaries from the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada laboring in East Africa."

Barnabas Mtokambali, the Tanzania AG general superintendent, encouraged Christians in the Tanzania AG to remain Christlike in their faith.
