Story number 1 for 13 Sep 2002

(Africa)–Topping the news, the African church has suffered a setback this month with violence that has directly affected its leaders, three of whom have been murdered. One incident involved Samuel Nimubona, head of World Outreach Initiatives, and involved in a partner radio outreach with HCJB World Radio. HCJB’s Heide Jones says they were shocked by this report. “He’s been so involved in this area and it’s just such a huge loss to hear the news that he was killed on the 7th of this month.” Jones says despite Nimubona’s murder, the outreach is bearing fruit through 15-hundred specially tuned radios. “The Christian radio, since it has been on the air, has really played a huge part in healing people in this area. He estimated that in the few months since those radios have been sent out, about a thousand people have come to know the Lord.” Nimubona is survived by his wife, Delphine, and two daughters.
