How can Ugandan Christians prepare for what’s coming? Year after year, radical Islamic groups make more headway southwards into Africa.
Todd Nettleton with The Voice of the Martyrs USA says, “It really is a concerted effort to spread the teachings of radical Islam further and further into Africa. And it certainly is affecting Christians in Uganda.”
VOM wants to help Ugandan churches prepare for increased persecution and hardship. “When persecution comes, the Bible gives us some instructions about how to respond. We need to pray for those who are persecuting us, love our enemies, and forgive them.”
“That’s a part of the work that Voice of the Martyrs is doing right now in Africa: Preparing the Church to stand strong when and if persecution does come.”
Nettleton says Saudi Arabia has funded much of the Islamic extremism in Africa. The attacks won’t be ending any time soon.
