Prayer needed for Christian university after shooting rampage

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

USA (MNN) ― The three surviving victims of a shooting rampage at a Christian university have been released from the hospital, according to the Associated Press.

Seven victims were killed after 43-year-old One L. Goh entered his former school, Oikos University in Oakland, California, and opened fire on Monday.

Goh was apprehended in a supermarket after he shot a number of students and fled the scene. Reports indicate that Goh may have been expelled from Oikos months ago, and he may also have been upset by students’ teasing of his English skills.

According to ASSIST News Service (ANS), Oakland police Chief Howard Jordan has said there is still not a clear motive for Goh’s actions.

Oikos University caters to the Korean-American Christian community in northern California. It is affiliated with Praise God Korean Church in Oakland, reports ANS. But the small student body also has students who hail from places like Nigeria and Nepal.

The school has a distinct missions focus, as seen in one of its core objectives: “To instill a missionary vision to worldwide outreach and increase ethical standards in personal lifestyle.”

The school’s vision “is to educate emerging Christian leaders to transform and bless the world at every level–from the church and local community levels to the realm of world entire. The fulfillment of this vision inspires, motivates, drives, and defines the work of Oikos University.”

So far, there’s been no word on the university’s next step. Pray that students at Oikos will not be deterred in their pursuit to follow Christ and spread His name throughout the world. During this tragedy, pray that Oikos students might even be a light to others in the way they grieve, respond, and even forgive.
