2/2/2021 Uganda (International Christian Concern)- Morningstar News has reported that the family of Pastor Moses Nabwana was assaulted for a second time on Sunday, Jan. 24, just four weeks after he and his wife were beaten in an attack incited by mosque leaders. While the pastor remained hospitalized from his injuries, three area Muslims broke into his home, injuring his wife, Lovisa Naura, and two of their eight children.
“I heard loud noises and plates being broken. The children and I woke up,” Naura told Morning Star News. “The attackers had broken the door and entered in. One started strangling me, while another threw one of my daughters outside through the window and broke the skin on her leg.”
Thankfully, Naura’s brother-in-law and his family ran to her assistance, causing the perpetrators to flee. Her 10 year old daughter escaped with a gash in her leg, while her 12 year old sustained an eye injury. Naura, still recovering from the prior beating which broke her hand and damaged her chest and back, reported additional neck pain.
The recent assaults stem from the conversion of a local Muslim iman to Christianity. On December 27th, mosque leaders announced the apostasy of the imam, resulting in the attacks on Christians as well as the destruction of parts of the local church. While the majority of Uganda is Christian, radical Islamists are becoming more common along the country’s eastern, southwestern and northern borders. Please pray for the strength and healing of Pastor Moses Nabwana and his family, and for the repentance of their attackers. Please continue to pray for persecuted Christians in Uganda and throughout the world.
