Christians Poisoned, Threatened

[246] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Luuando Yombo.

Luuando Yombo’s husband was an elder in their church in the Ubwari Peninsula in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Her mother and brother also served at the church in an area with a large Muslim population. In 2021, Muslim neighbors provided food for church members. After eating the food, the church members grew ill and believed the food had been intentionally poisoned. Luuando’s husband, brother, mother and two other members of the church died after eating the food. Then, the people who provided the food burned down Luuanda’s house, saying, “We are going to finish you in this village.” Luuando has left the area and fears returning. She is tormented by the memories of what happened but says she has forgiven the poisoners. She is now caring for 16 children, her own and her brother’s.

  • Lord,
    You are so awesome in Who You are. My initial thoughts are that it is absolutely disgusting that people would choose to serve poisoned to others and then burn down their house and that they deserve the worst punishment imaginable. Being able to forgive them is something only You make possible. May Your Justice be served. Please comfort Luundo.
