UGANDA: Pastor Umar Mulinde Update

Bulletin Date: 29 January 2014


After undergoing numerous surgeries in Israel, Pastor Umar Mulinde is improving and is very optimistic. He recently shared with Voice Of the Martyrs that his skin grafts are normalizing and becoming softer. He is also thankful that after some struggles, his children have greatly improved in their studies. He hopes to return to them soon in Uganda.

Pastor Mulinde was attacked in 2011 just after completing a week-long revival at his church. He was on his way to a Christmas Eve party with his congregation and new believers when a man called out to him. As Pastor Mulinde turned, a man poured acid onto his face while others poured more on his back. The attackers ran away shouting, "Allahu Akbar [God is greater]." The acid burned about 30 percent of his face and blinded him in one eye.

Pastor Mulinde requests prayer for another surgery scheduled for 3 February 2014 (TODAY!) to re-open his ear and revisit scars around his lips and nostrils.
