The International Christian Concern (ICC) has rendered help to the children of a Ugandan man, Yusuf Kintu, who was ambushed and beaten by a group of Muslims for converting to Christianity.
This was revealed in the latest edition of the magazine published by the Christain Group.
Unfortunately, after the incident, his Muslim wife divorced him, taking two of their young children with her, leaving their two teenage children behind who
had also put their faith in Christ.
But Yusuf died from the wounds he suffered from the attack two days after.
ICC then connected with a local pastor to bring aid to the older children
in the midst of their grief.
“We helped provide them with rent, food, clothing, and transportation to and from the courthouse where their father’s case is ongoing,” ICC said.
“We have found love amongst the few believers on the island and our
faith has been encouraged. Thank you very much for the food shopping,
rent, and pocket money for use,” the eldest son expressed.
Speaking also, the younger brother expressed his joy over the help that has come their way, saying he was overwhelmed by the love
“The Lord brought you from nowhere to just help us after the
attack on our father. We are spurred to continue trusting in Christ by
your concern, and we promise to remain in the Lord for the rest of our
lives. May God bless you for giving sacrificially to our cause.”
41-year-old late Yusuf was the former Imam of Macca Mosque in Dolwe Island, Mayuge District was killed on December 7, 2020, by a Muslim mob.
According to Pastor Andrew Nyanma of the Full Gospel church Dolwe, Yusuf had put his faith in Christ on November 30, 2020, after hearing the Gospel.
