Time for Christians, Non-Muslims and Apostates to Speak Out!
|Pastor Umar Mulinde|
Today we want to share a story with you in the hopes that it will awaken the need to deal with a hatred that is fast spreading around the world, and threatens to shackle us all~unless we stand together, speak out, and say No More!
|At Chaim Sheba Hospital|
“I was born into a Muslim family, and although I decided to become a Christian, I have been financially assisting many Muslims, as well as my relatives who are Muslims,” he said. “I have been conducting a peaceful evangelism campaign.”
On Christmas Eve 2011, Pastor Mulinde was viciously attacked with acid~by Muslims~outside the Gospel Life Church International building in Namasuba (ten kilometers outside of Kampalaand).
Describing the cowardly and brutal attack against him, he said, a man claiming to be a Christian approached him…
|After the Attack|
According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Mulinde contacted Andrea Gottlieb, the executive director of the online Jewish distance learning portal JerusalemOnlineU.com, for financial and logistical support so he could be treated in Israel. Gottlieb took on the request and contacted the director-general of the Sheba Medical Center, Professor Zeev Rothstein, who agreed to help Mulinde. The pastor arrived in Israel on 05 January 2012, via India and Jordan on special visas, and is now being provided with medical treatment free of charge.
To all of our friends and partners, we ask you to Join in Prayer for Pastor Umar Mulinde. He is receiving the best medical care in the world, but over the next weeks and months he will require many painful surgeries and treatments, as well as the traumatic aftermath of this devastating attack, which will most likely include a loss of vision. He is alone, in a foreign country, there is a fatwa on his life, and he is forsaken by his own family members. Who among us could walk this path?
* Have we turned our backs on Christian brothers and sisters because they are living in Africa and the Middle East?
* Is anyone really listening~or are we more concerned with the next “reality show”?
Please take time to think about these matters. We would be interested in hearing your thoughts…
