In Kampala, Uganda I met an amazing lady named Veronica. Veronica is the director of the “Comforter Center” which is a center to minister to women who feel their only choice is to abort their babies. Veronica and her staff show them the love of Christ and help them through their difficult situation. Many women chose life for their babies, and even more choose Jesus for themselves.
A handful of young people had believed in Jesus and were rejecting the divinity and absolute power of the King. The King decided to rid himself of this new threat to his power and ordered the execution of these young followers. Twenty four in all, he had them march to an execution site just outside Kampala. It was 1886 when the order was given. The king’s executioner tied them to a tree and told them if they renounced Jesus Christ, the King would allow them to live. They all refused. They were bound and tied into reed mats and laid upon logs which were to be set to fire.
