Muslim Background Believer Beaten by Family in Uganda

Saturday, March 29th, 2014

Across the Muslim world, converting from Islam to Christianity is a difficult if not impossible task. Many willing to convert face social isolation, family hostility and in more extreme locations the threat of death. For one Muslim Background Believer in Uganda, it meant facing the wrath of her father and community. Please pray for this individual as she begins he walk with Jesus Christ. 

Uganda Facing ‘Imminent’ Terror Attack; Christians Urged to be Alert, Cautious

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

 The United States Embassy issued a warning of "imminent threat" for Uganda by the Al Shabaab Islamic terror group. Although Uganda has a majority-Christian population, Muslims are populated throughout the country in dense clusters, within which Christians face severe persecution. It is possible that an infrastructure is in place to support an attack equal or larger in scope than Nairobi's Westgate Mall massacre. Given Al Shabaab's great effort to avoid harming fellow Muslims in that attack, it is likely that any target in Uganda will be one with predominantly Christian personnel or symbolism. ICC encourages Christians in Uganda to be alert and cautious for suspicious persons or activities, to keep mobile phones at hand, and to closely monitor police and media updates, especially at worship this Sunday.

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013
