ICC Supports Christian Convert in Uganda
07/27/2020 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Muslim-background believers (MBBs) are among the most vulnerable persecuted Christians in the world. When they leave Islam behind, they risk losing their livelihood, community, and safety. MBBs must choose to forsake the comforts of life in order to forge a meaningful relationship with Jesus.
This was the case for Yusuf in Uganda. Yusuf, a father of six, was excluded from his extended family in 2018 after he and his immediate family accepted Christ. Since then, he has faced continued harassment for his faith. His home was burned down and he was the victim of false allegations, leaving him with the burden of legal fees. As a result, Yusuf lives in constant fear of what will happen next because of his newfound faith in Christ.
In order to encourage Yusuf and his family and support them as they work through their financial stress, ICC provided him with a motorcycle. He will be able to use this vehicle as a boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) business. This business will allow Yusuf to provide a steady source of income for his family in order to pay their rent and address other family needs. It also serves as a reminder that the global Church is standing by their side and cheering them on in their faith.
