ICC Supports New Christian Converts in Uganda
09/27/2021 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In February 2020, a widow named Lydia and her two daughters accepted Christ after hearing the Gospel from a local pastor. When Lydia and her daughters converted to Christianity, they were kicked out of their home by her late husband’s Muslim family. They believed that, by leaving Islam, Lydia had committed blasphemy against the family’s Islamic faith and embarrassed her late husband.
Lydia and her daughters packed their bags and the local church has been providing them with a place to stay during this season. ICC stepped in to provide the family with food aid, furniture, rent, clothing, and more.
Lydia expressed, “Christ has been our refuge and deliverer and He has provided [for] all our needs. Thank you, ICC, for being part of our lives as we unlearn our former Muslim faith and learn the Christian faith…You have encouraged us immensely and we are spurred to continue loving and serving our savior Jesus Christ.”
