When Her Muslim Father Found Out She Converted

Jul 6, 2021

Meet the Most Critical Needs Worldwide

A 38-year-old Ugandan mother of three accepted Christ a few months ago in what she says was "a miraculous healing" from breast cancer, Morning Star News reports.

She joyfully started sharing her newfound faith with others!

But when her Muslim father discovered she'd turned from Islam to follow Jesus, he tracked her down, beat her and poisoned her.

Our new sister in Christ is in recovery now—I'm grateful she survived—but the emotional trauma and physical pain remain. Morning Star further reports:

Besides the anguish of being separated from her children, ages 5, 7 and 12, who are with their father, [the victim] needs further specialized treatment.

"I am restless with continuous pain in my stomach," she said.

Her pastor reported the attack to a local official who granted her permission to stay with the church leader, but due to the dangers of her returning there, [she] found shelter at an undisclosed site.

She has not notified police, fearing retaliation from relatives, including the possibility of them inventing false charges against her or the church.

"It is a very delicate situation," a church leader said.

Delicate indeed!

It's unthinkable what believers around the world must endure at the hands of radicals and terrorists because of conversion to Christianity from Islam, not to mention their family members.

But it is for Christians like this suffering sister that Liberty Relief International is dedicated to bringing hope and humanitarian aid to the persecuted.

Today I urge you to join us!
