Peninah, a young widow from Kenya, finds hope after tragedy

On September 14, 2018, Peninah’s husband, Paul, was killed by the radical extremist group al-Shabaab. After this tragic loss, Peninah struggled with her faith—why would God allow this to happen?—and struggled to survive.

But through the help of Open Doors, Peninah and her four-year-old son, Steve, found hope when they needed it the most. 

This is her story.
