He then signed out as “the person who broke the church”.

Rev Peter Wanyoike said the thief destroyed part of the church’s iron sheet walls to gain access.

Forgiven

“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,” said Rev Wanyoike.

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.

Nyandarua Police Commander Gedion Ngumi said they have started investigations into the incident.
