02/03/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – “In 2014, I started another school in Katira, a Muslim-dominated area. The enrollment grew from 14 to 70 in a span of eight months. Again, local Muslims ganged against me, this time wanting to poison all of us in the school. Police arrested a lady whom we suspected was sent to put poison in the kitchen.”
Food poisoning is one of the primary tactics that Muslims use to kill Christian converts in Uganda. They were forced to withdraw the legal charges against their suspected poisoner after serious death threats.
“The legal charges against this woman led to escalated persecution again, forcing us to move again in 2015. This is where we are now. The community in Kabuna has been very receptive and supportive,” he continued.
Regardless of the continued threats from hardline Muslims who loathe this pastor’s conversion and ministry, he is confident that the Lord’s will shall prevail. “Our ministry is very risky and puts our lives in danger continually. If anyone says there is no persecution in Uganda, let them come to the ground.”
“During this time when Islamic radicalization is on the increase, we commit to continue preaching the Good News and helping believers that leave Islam,” he added.
The pastor’s shelter and school host nearly 70 converts and their families. This ministry is helping to heal the wounds of those who have been attacked for their newfound faith in Christ. There are many more families in Uganda that are in need of help, and we plan on being the hands and feet of Jesus there.
