- A thief recently attempted to rob a church, cutting the church's iron sheet walls to gain entry
- In his apology letter, he explained that he regretted his actions especially after risking it all and finding no money
- Church officials said the church reported the incident at a police station and confirmed that the congregants had forgiven the thief
Members of a church in Nyandarua county on Monday, July 15, woke up to a humourous story about a thief who had broken into the church the night before and left behind an apology letter, regretting his actions.
The thief, according to reports from Pentecostal Evangelistic Fellowship of Africa (PEFA) Church in Engineer township, decided to write an apology letter after finding no money.
According to Nation Media Group, the thief explained that he regretted his action especially after risking it all for nothing.
He went ahead to reveal he did not find the money despite the fact that a congregant had informed him there was a good amount of money kept safe in the church.
“I was sent here by one of your fellow Christians who told me that the amount of money has been kept inside the church. But I got nothing. God bless you all and pray for me. Thanks,” the letter read.
The incident was confirmed by Reverend Peter Wanyoike who said the thief gained access to the church by breaking some iron sheet wall.
Wanyoike said the church reported the incident at a police station and confirmed that the congregants had forgiven the thief.

“We found the letter in the church when the police arrived to commence their investigations. He believed there was some money in church. We have forgiven him. We are praying for him to get saved. He is welcome to confess and worship with us,” Wanyoike said.
Worshipers also said they had forgiven the thief but expressed concern over rising cases of crimes targeting churches.
“What shocks us most is the confession letter. He had all the time to rummage all over the church looking for the money and then write the confession letter in his own handwriting. He must have attended the church or has an informer. Maybe it is only the timing that was wrong. He needs prayers,” said Faith Wairimu, a resident of Engineer town.
