Christianity is growing in Uganda. Radical Muslims want the growth to stop.
Umar is a pastor in Uganda. He and his wife have six children.
On Christmas Eve in 2011, Pastor Umar was attacked on his way to church. The attackers threw some acid at the pastor, and it burned his face.
Seven months later, someone threw a note into Pastor Umar’s church. The note threatened Umar’s family with further harm.
But the pastor was not at the church. He was in another country getting treatment for his burn scars.
In February 2013, attackers again came to the church. They brought more acid with them. But they spilled they acid on the church veranda, and no one was injured.
Ask God to continue to protect Pastor Umar, his wife, and their six children. The Voice of the Martyrs is helping support and encourage the family.
