Pastor, Church Member Die for Proclaiming Christ in Eastern Uganda
Christians in eastern Uganda had what seemed to be an effective strategy for bringing the gospel to Muslims on the banks of Lake Nakuwa, part of Lake Kyoga.
The Christians from Namuseru village, Gadumire Sub-County in Kaliro District would cross the lake to go fishing and, as they interacted with Muslims near Lugonyola village, become fishers of men, inviting them to evangelistic meetings there.
In time hard-line Muslims began warning the Christians to stop evangelizing in the area, sources said. The last warning came on June 21, a day before radical Muslims from Lugonyola village beat and drowned 25-year-old pastor Peter Kyakulaga and 22-year-old church member Tuule Mumbya in the lake, one of the pastorâ€™s relatives said....
True Islam teaches that everyone must convert, pay an infidel tax or die. Fortunately most Muslims are simply born into that faith or are cultural Muslims only and they donâ€™t become militants. Thank God.
But, if these two were genuine Christians they are now living in eternal bliss.
