“While the five government secret police goons made preparations to kill Ugandan Pastor Kefa Sempangi one Easter Sunday, God was orchestrating this to be their day of salvation…

‘I do not need to plead my own cause,’ Pastor Kefa answered as he was held at gunpoint. ‘I am a dead man already. My life is dead and hidden in Christ. It is your lives that are in danger; you are dead in your sins. I will pray to God that after you have killed me, He will spare you from eternal destruction.’

Lowering his gun and motioning to the others to do the same, one of the mob asked, ‘Will you pray for us now?’ ‘Father in heaven,’ Pastor Kefa prayed, ‘You who have forgiven men in the past, forgive these men also. Do not let them perish in their sins but bring them into Yourself.’”
