Church trusting to rebuild after attack Please share this post..


2 Corinthians 4:8-12 KJV

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken;cast down, but not destroyed;Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you.


In January, Katira Church of Eastern Uganda suffered an attack. Since that time many have been praying for answers to the whereabouts of  Moses Mutasa, and eight other Christians who were still missing. { Details}  Church Attack

I first learned of Moses Mutasa a few years back through Abba Fathers International Fellowship. Moses distributed the Jesus Came To Heal The Brokenhearted tracts, and called the prayer line to share testimonies. I remember the urgency in his voice to reach souls through the Gospel.

The Lord works in mysterious ways, and Pastor David Kissame of the Iganga Center   agreed to investigate the situation at Katira Church. In his report he stated that he traveled to the Village Katiro, in Budaka District. Local villagers were reluctant to share information, and it took nearly 4 hours to locate Reverend Mus Mukenye, who is head of Katira Church. David was taken to the church were the attack took place that evening. Reverend Mukenye testified that a mob of Muslim men surrounding the church, and as they attempted to lock themselves inside the church, these men removed the metal sheets to gain access inside. Many were beaten, and the woman raped, the attack lasted for hours before any authorities came. Some church members fled for their lives, the rape victims and injured were treated at a near by clinic. After the mayhem, Reverend Mukenye and the church members attempted to locate the missing. It is believed that the missing members, including Moses Mutasa have relocated to another village. All the victims are in need of prayer for physical and emotional healing. Reverend Mukenye encourages his congregation to forgive, and allow the Lord to deal with the assailants.

Katira was left in need of several repairs, as the men destroyed their pews, and vandalized the church. They have made some repairs, but are lacking the finances. In Uganda the greatest share of congregants are poor, and most are unable to tithe more than a few shillings a week. Pastor David has informed me that the estimated cost of repairs, will be over 4,000 dollars. If you feel lead to help this church rebuild, please donate via Pay Pal at my page, and be sure to include “Church” in the memo. I ask that you please pray, and share this need with others.

    Mary, you may want to consider Voice of the Martyrs, as a source of funds. VOM actively serves the persecuted church worldwide. Your heart for missionary work would, I think, make a good fit.
