There is a must read article in the July, 2006 issue of Charisma Magazine: “Uganda’s Miracle” by Kyalo Nguku. It tells about a major move of God in the Southern part of Uganda, Africa. In the 1970’s, Idi Amin murdered between 300,000-500,000 people in an attempt to convert the nation to Islam. In response, God raised up Christian leaders to begin a movement of intercession and miracles. Today, the move of God is reaching into the highest levels of the Ugandan government, bringing down high places and strongholds of witchcraft, casting out demons, raising the dead, and healing the sick, most notably, 100’s of documented healings from AIDS.
In 1991, the country was facing a major disaster, with over 30% of the adult population suffering from AIDS. The government turned the disaster over to the church, which sponsored and implemented a major information campaign which called for abstinence. Major relief organizations were critical, but it was the most successful program anywhere, bringing down the rate to roughly 5 %. The Ugandan Christians are now planning major outreaches to the war torn and depleted North.
