Uganda • Oct 2018

Just over a month ago we started to see some spiritual warfare taking place in some of the communities we work in in Uganda. Please pray for the churches to stay strong in following God and to keep doing the things they are doing in their communities that are drawing people to Jesus and the church. Also pray for the pastors and their leadership under this spiritual warfare. It appears that people of the Islamic faith are taking notice of the outreach and impact our church partners are having in their community. They are seeing that people are being drawn to the Christian churches we work with and that lives are being changed and commitments are being made to Jesus. In response to this they have built a mosque next to two of the churches and an Islamic school and mosque nearby a third church. The Islamic church is also giving away cows to people who convert to Islam. We are told it feels like they are “competing for people.” Our field staff are encouraging the pastors to stay strong and keep doing what they are doing, but the spiritual warfare can be felt and they are worried.
