Pastor Umar Mulinde, who was attached with acid after converting from Islam to Christianity, is one of multitudes who made there way to Kololo Airstrip in Kampala to pray for the nation of Israel and also celebrate her 70th anniversary.
Mulinde, who is the lead Pastor of Gospel Life Church, Namasuba said God used the prayers of the Church and the expertise of the Israeli doctors at a time doctors in India, among other countries claimed his chances of survival after the acid attack were 1 percent.
‘When I was in India, they told me my chances of death were 99 percent, but here I am (today) preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ again,” he said as he led believers in prayer on Thursday.
The celebrations, which kicked off early morning with a prayer walk from Makerere to Kololo Airstrip, were graced by several dignitaries including Ms Christine Joyce Dradidi Ondoa, a former Minister of Health, KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Semakula Musisi, a Consulate of Israel, delegates from Ethiopia, USA, Pastor Ronald Mubiru among others.
“Following what has been done today, Uganda will be blessed,” said Pastor Drake Kanaabo, the Chief organizer of the celebration said.
“I got an opportunity to travel the country of Israel for almost 20 times, from boarder to boarder. And there God is prospering them. And their God is our God,” he added. “This nation of Uganda is a prophetic nation. I am only 58 years, but have seen God in every way He intervenes. From now onward, any matter concerning Uganda, the God of Israel will intervene.”
