Early this year, Pastor Paul forced his congregation to sell their properties, give him money and starve to death in order to meet with God. Unfortunately, hundreds of them died while others suffered severe starvation. So far the Kenya Red Cross has confirmed 73 people dead, 30 rescued alive, and over 100 still missing.
