Urgent: Prayer Request! More Bombings in Uganda…

| FRM News

Please pray for the safety of the people in Uganda. Today another bomb exploded in the Kampala city center. We have heard, but not yet confirmed, that no one was hurt. We also learned that a church near to the guesthouse had four bombs planted inside, fortunately, all were disarmed safely. All our missionaries are safe and taking great precaution. We are closely monitoring the situation. We have advised our missionaries to stay inside unless absolutely necessary as a precautionary measure.  We have no indication that missionaries in other cities or locations are at risk at this time.
There are many rumors flying around and people are worried. The group responsible, Al-Shabbab, is based in Somalia with ties to Al-Qaeda. They claim to be against Uganda because of their supporting the African Peace keeping Union with troops in Somalia. Right now we covet your prayers for safety, peace, and full protection. God is in control and this is an opportunity for us all to shine for the Lord. We will keep you updated as we learn more. Thank you all so much!
