|Evelyn & Pastor Umar Mulinde|
In January 2012 we met an amazing couple~Pastor Umar and Evelyn Mulinde. The circumstances were grave~Pastor Umar was in Israel for medical treatment after being doused in acid by Muslim fundamentalists. At the bottom of this post you can follow the links to articles and videos on Pastor Mulinde.
Over time, the story of this amazing man has been revealed. Born a Muslim and trained to preach Islam, Umar Mulinde had an "curious mind" and this led him to question much of what he had been taught. As a result, he found the Love of the Lord. While studying the scriptures he was constantly reading about "The God of Israel", and as he learned more, he developed a Love for Israel.
After he completed his degree, Umar was ordained as a pastor and began his outreach to other Muslims. These actions were like a "death warrant", but he was not deterred. Rejected and considered "dead" by his family, persecuted by the Muslim community, this young man built a church in Uganda with thousands of followers. Each Monday, his congregation spends the day studying and praying for Israel. Below he tells Bishop Daniel Williams of Christian Communion International, that he believes his faith and this devotion to "bless" Israel may be one reason that his life was saved in this latest, vicious attack, referring to the scripture:

In April 2012 during the 4th Jerusalem Assembly. David, Jay and Meridel brought Pastor Mulinde from the Tel HaShomer hospital in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem to meet with Christian leaders attending the assembly.
The clip below is of an encounter that took place in the lobby as they arrived. Bishop Quintin Moore of The Christian Communion International, and lead pastor of The Father's House speaks with Pastor Mulinde and they discover a common friend, "John", who was the pastor that led Umar to the Lord!
In the next days we will post the round table meeting between Pastor Mulinde and some of the key speakers at the 4th Jerusalem Assembly. You will hear Pastor Mulinde tell his riveting story of the persecutions he endured on his journey of faith...from Islam to Jerusalem...Do Stay Tuned!
A Meeting of Friends and Bishops...
