UGANDA – Children of Christian kidnapped
The fault line where Islam abuts Christianity runs through Africa from west to east and everywhere the Muslims are playing dirty tragic tricks.
Please pray for the safe return of three children in Uganda who have been kidnapped – because their father turned to Christ.
Our brother in Christ, Madengho Badir, says he has not slept since his three children, aged five, seven and ten, were snatched from their home in Kabuna, east Uganda, on Wednesday.
Madengho says he knows that their kidnappers are trying to force him to return to Islam. ‘I know God will answer our prayer, and I will get back my three children, since my only hope is in Jesus,’ he says.
Meanwhile, about 12 miles away, in Komodo, friends and family are mourning the death of a Christian policeman called Ismail Kuloba, who was shot dead last Tuesday. It seems he too was targeted because he had left Islam to follow Jesus.
Suspected extremists ambushed Ismail after summoning him on false pretences to deal with a ‘local land dispute’. When Ismail arrived at the scene, there was no such dispute – only a group of Islamist extremists, who killed him.

- Pray with Madengho that his three children will soon be returned home safely.
- Pray that God will comfort and provide for Ismail’s family.
- Pray for our brothers and sisters living in mainly Muslim areas of east Uganda such as Komodo. Pray they will stand firm and not retaliate.
- Pray that the light of Christ will remain strong in this mainly Christian nation.
