UGANDA – Mother and Daughter Disowned for Converting to Christianity

International Christian Concern | Jan. 7, 2019

Adijah is living with a Christian family in Kisinga, Western Uganda, after she was threatened and disowned by her husband for becoming a Christian. One year ago, Adijah and her daughter Nuriah left Bwera, where they had lived for over 20 years, and headed to a new district in Kasese with very little hope of ever returning home. She shared her story with International Christian Concern (ICC) during a recent visit.

All the years that I was a Muslim, I found nothing wrong with it. But last year, when I was listening to a radio program about Jesus, I started thinking about Christianity and why there was so much enmity between Muslims and Christians. I did not know [it then, but it] started my journey to Christianity,” said Adijah.
