Uganda: Four Kids and Mom Choose Christ
Doreka and her husband were raising their four children as Muslims. But when Doreka left Islam to follow Christ, her husband kicked all five of them out of their house in Uganda and threatened to harm the children.
“In Islam, they teach that heaven is a garden,” Doreka told a VOM worker. But I heard that Jesus is the one who can take us to the Father, so I accepted Christ. No matter what happens, I stand firm in Jesus Christ because of His promises.”
Doreka and her kids first took refuge in a church to escape her angry husband. Then, with the help of The Voice of the Martyrs, they got a house of their own, and the children returned to school. Their church continues to support and encourage them.
Some Muslims in Uganda, like Doreka, are learning about Jesus and deciding to trust Him as their Savior. But sadly, some Christians who are not strong in their faith have turned their backs on the truths in the Bible.
