An Edmond teenager faces a possible life in prison sentence after authorities say they learned about shocking crimes he allegedly committed on an African mission trip.
The suspect was volunteering at a Kenyan children’s home when he allegedly raped and molested a number of young children.
According to court records, 19-year-old Matthew Durham confessed to raping several young girls, forcing some boys to perform oral sex on him and even making other kids watch.
“This is a young man in our community that made choices to exploit children in an orphanage,” said United States Attorney Sanford Coats. “It’s a true tragedy all the way around.”
The 19-year-old suspect traveled overseas with a group called Upendo.
Upendo is an organization that assists neglected Kenyan kids by providing food, housing, clothes and religion.
You should always pray and ask God for discernment when giving your funds to organizations that posits God’s work. This serial rapist is not from God, but he has been sent by Satan. Because of white supremacy he will probably get a light sentence and that light sentence will set him up to continue this behavior in the states. God is the ultimate judge and you should be weary of anyone claiming to help you, when most men only seek their own and not the things of God.
Pray and seek God’s face when supporting missionaries.
