Shunned Believers Receive Training

[214] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Christian converts.

Muslims who trust in Christ often face severe consequences. They can be rejected by their families, lose jobs and homes, and even be killed. In Uganda, VOM is helping front-line workers provide job training and equipment to support Christian converts who have been shunned by their communities. Two hundred former Muslims recently completed vocational training in sewing, cooking, barbering and metalworking. Upon graduation, they were also given equipment to launch businesses. One of the graduates, trained in welding and metal fabrication, said, “Since I converted to Christianity, Muslims have been mocking me and belittling me for forsaking family and its benefits. Thank you so much for equipping us.”
