    Prayer for the Persecuted Church - June 5, 2015

    While Muslims compose a small percent of Uganda's population, persecution of Christians there is increasing.

    Hassan was an Ugandan Muslim who hated Christians and assaulted them. After feeling led to attend a crusade, he gave his life to Christ. Then his family disowned him, a Muslim mob burned his home, and he lost his teaching job and was imprisoned several times.

    During one of his prison terms he felt led by God to provide care and education for children who have converted from Islam to Christianity and have been disowned by their families. He now has 13 children that he is sheltering. He admits he has to totally depend on God to protect and provide for these children. One of the children is 12-year-old Saidah who says, "Since I was taught that persecution is part of a new believers life, I know I must endure and pray for those who persecute me. Indeed, it is what I am doing to forgive them."

    Please pray for continued protection and provision for Hassan as he cares for and teaches these children who have been disowned by their families and for all precious children who live in countries that are hostile to the Gospel and yet have given their hearts to Christ and have been abandoned by their families as a result, a reality that is so hard for us to comprehend.

    "When Jesus saw this, He was indignant. He said to them, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.'" -Mark 10:14

    Thank you for your prayers.
