Pastor Umar Mulinde of Gospel Life Church International is continuing treatment following an acid attack on him during the Christmas eve of 2011.
Mulinde was attacked with acid outside his church in Kampala and was later flown to Israel for better treatment .He says that he has so far undergone seven surgeries and hopes to recover soon.
“I have so far undergone seven surgeries and have three more to go. The next one is scheduled for Aug. 28. It seems like a never-ending battle for me, but I am glad that I have not let it put me down. I have recently been encouraged by visits from some long time Ugandan friends. I also thank you so much for all your prayers and support. Please keep praying for me.” Pastor Umar Mulinde said from Israel last week according to Religion Today News site
Doctors at Kampala International Hospital, where he had been rushed for treatment after the attack, had said that the acid had badly damaged his skin and some facial bones. It also blinded one eye.
“I am trusting God for a quick recovery, and for the provision in all the needs of my family and ministry,” he said. “For sure I have gone through challenging, painful moments of my life but I really thank you for quickly coming to my rescue at my very point of need. God bless you indeed.” Umar said thanking Open Doors and other individuals and organizations which have been supporting him.
