 Girl in Uganda Loses Use of Legs after Leaving Islam for Christ

Muslim father locked 14-year-old in room with almost no food or water for months.
NAIROBI, Kenya, August 11 (CDN) — A 14-year-old girl in western Uganda is still unable to walk 10 months after her father tortured her for leaving Islam and putting her faith in Christ, according to area Christians.

Susan Ithungu of Isango village, Kasese district, has been hospitalized at Kagando Hospital since October 2010 after neighbors with police help rescued her from her father, Beya Baluku. He was arrested shortly afterward but quickly released, sources said.

Susan and her younger brother, Mbusa Baluku, lived alone with their father after he divorced their mother. In March 2010 an evangelist from Bwera Full Gospel Church spoke at Susan’s school, and she decided to trust Christ for her salvation.

“I heard the message of Christ’s great love of him dying for us to get everlasting peace, and there and then I decided to believe in Christ,” she said from her hospital bed. “After a month, news reached my father that I had converted to Christianity, and that was the beginning of my troubles with him. Our father warned us not to attend church or listen to the gospel message. He even threatened us with a sharp knife that he was ready to kill us in broad daylight in case we converted to Christianity.”

She has been counted worthy to suffer for Christ. We should constantly pray for the persecuted church.

Yes, we are commanded to do so and His commandments are never grievous, but only lead us to the Crucified.

 Re:

Dear Jesus we pray healing for Susans legs. Dear God we ask that you convert her father. Bring him to salvation in Jesus. For it in the name of your Son I ptay. Amen.

Saints there is a venue available by which one can join others and pray for the persecuted. A national conference call is established by which intercessors can come from across the nation and pray for people like Susan. Those wanting details of the con call please email me at [email protected]

Brother Andrew has said that prayer is not preparing for the battle. Prayer is the battle. The heart cry of the persecuted to the western church is please pray for us. The persecuted don't even ask to be delivered from their persecution. They ask prayer to withstand the persecution. The writer of Hebrews ehorts us to remember those in prison as if we were their fellow prisoners and those who are mistreated as if we were suffering ourselves. This con call is one way you can do this. Whatever you do. Please remember the persecuted church.

 Re:

(In my email today)

Just weeks ago I met secretly with a courageous believer who had been forced to hang from his ankles or wrists every day, subjected to repeated beatings and was crammed in a three-foot square box for three weeks.

Racked by memories of the agony he'd been through, Aran had been looking at me with a pained expression until I asked the question, "What were you thinking or feeling during that time?"

His face completely changed. A huge smile broke across it, and he gave me two thumbs up. What was he thinking…?

Aran simply said, "That I was counted worthy to suffer for Jesus Christ."

In that moment I realized how valuable it is for persecuted believers on the front lines to experience what it means to "share in the suffering of Christ" (2 Cor 1: 5).

As I traveled to encourage the persecuted church in the Muslim world, I returned grateful to have visited my brothers and sisters in person… hearing their stories of torture and humiliation… wowed by their faith—with fresh inspiration to encourage you with the news that every gift is needed… that every gift goes powerfully to work!

These brave believers cherish your caring support and faithful prayers! The same goes for your gift today.

Please encourage these and other persecuted believers around the world with your gift, which will send the support, counseling, safe shelter and biblical resources they need.

Thank you for responding with your financial encouragement.

In Christ,
Carl Moeller
President/CEO
Open Doors USA

 Re: StarofGod

Michelle thank you for sharing this. I support Open Doors as well as Voice of the Martyrs. Both of these, as well as other ministries do a splendid work in supporting the persecuted church.

The persecuted have much to teach us. I posted something about N Korea under the thread dealing with the mark of the beast. Persecuted believers have a different paradyne living for Christ than we in America do. May we have the humility to learn the lessons they have to teach us.

 Re:

I came across this quote today.

"In those times there was darkness everywhere. In heaven and on earth, all the gates of compassion seemed to have been closed. The killer killed and the Jews died and the outside world adopted an attitude either of complicity or of indifference. Only a few had the courage to care. These few men and women were vulnerable, afraid, helpless - what made them different from their fellow citizens?… Why were there so few?… Let us remember: What hurts the victim most is not the cruelty of the oppressor but the silence of the bystander…. Let us not forget, after all, there is always a moment when moral choice is made…. And so we must know these good people who helped Jews during the Holocaust. We must learn from them, and in gratitude and hope, we must remember them."

Elie Wiesel, in Carol Rittner, Sandra Meyers, Courage To Care - Rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust, NYU Press, 1986. P. 2

There truly is much we can learn from those who have already "gone through it."

Blessings to you in Christ
