After "Abdul" and his family came to Christ in a predominantly Muslim area of Uganda, they faced persecution from villagers and Muslim leaders. Local leaders came to his defense, and for the most part, the harassment ended. However, still fearful that they are being watched, Abdul and his family decided to be baptized in another village. A VOM worker says a strong discipleship team located in the region continues to see people like Abdul and his family come to Christ in spite of the risk of persecution. Some converts come openly to church events, but the team also meets secretly with believers who have not yet told their Muslim families about their new faith.

Imagine the persecution of going through this. Many nations are still restricted and do not allow for Christians to live or worship freely. This kind of intolerance for the Christian community is growing in some places and dwindling in others. Our only hope is the Prayers of the Righteous and more importantly the power of the Blood of Jesus.
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
