Uganda: Christian Family Struggles
Elizabeth, a Muslim mother of five children, managed a small shop in Uganda. One day while she worked, she heard a voice saying, “Seek Me and find your life.”
Elizabeth’s search for the meaning of the saying led her to a Christian church. She began visiting the church, and after a time, she came to faith in Christ.
But she kept her new faith a secret from her Muslim husband. When he was out of town, Elizabeth attended prayer meetings. But she stayed home when he was in town.
After about a year, Elizabeth realized that she needed to be honest with her husband. But when he found out that she had become a Christian, he left her — pregnant with their sixth child.
Elizabeth has a hard time making ends meet for her family, and others in the community mock her instead of helping her. Please pray that she will stay strong in her faith.
