The woman was saved only when a Christian neighbor heard her cries of pain and rushed to help her.

Morning Star News has the story:

“Sandra Summaya, 24, of Bugayi village in Pallisa District, told Morning Star News that she converted to Christianity at a worship service on Christmas Day.

“‘I had great peace when the pastor prayed for me to take Jesus as my savior,’ she said. ‘I later shared my testimony with my brother, who outrightly accused me of being an infidel and an outcast from the family and the Muslim community. I felt great pain inside me because of the insults.’

“On Sunday (Jan. 1) Summaya’s immediate family and a few other relatives gathered in the predominantly Muslim village in Kamuge County to celebrate the New Year with a meal. At the high point of the gathering, Summaya said, a paternal uncle read to her a Bible verse and suggested it meant God would protect her from harm, including illness from ingesting poison.

“”He said, ‘Do you believe that Issa [Jesus] is able to protect your from poison as written in the Bible?’ and I answered ‘Yes,’ she said.

“‘Immediately I was forced to take the poison to confirm my faith in the Bible, at around midnight. I could not deny the Bible, so I took the rat poison.’”

It wasn’t long after she fell violently ill.

She said her stomach pains grew serve and she began to vomit violently. Her relatives then took her from her home and tied her with a rope to a nearby tree and left her to die, Morning Star News reported.

And then, the news outlet said:

“Her loud cries woke a Christian neighbor who rushed to the site.

“‘I found Summaya unconscious, and we rushed her to a Kamuge nursing home, where the doctor saved her life,’ said the neighbor, whose name is withheld for security reasons.

“Summaya remains at the hospital and her condition has stabilized, a nurse told Morning Star News.

“‘She will still be in the hospital for some few days as we monitor her situation,’ said the nurse, who requested anonymity.

“An area source requested prayer that Summaya be healed and protected, and that she not doubt God’s love and provision.

“The incidents are the latest in a series of anti-Christian attacks in eastern Uganda. On Christmas Day Muslims in eastern Uganda beat Christians at a worship service and wrecked the home of a single mother on Christmas Eve, sources said.

“On Dec. 8, relatives of a former Islamic teacher attacked his 60-year-old mother for becoming a Christian, wounding her head and breaking her hand, sources said. Aimuna Namutongi sustained a deep cut on her forehead. She and her son, 30-year-old Malik Higenyi, were trying to gather cassava at 10 a.m. on the homestead he had been forced to abandon in Bufuja village, Butaleja District, after Muslim relatives threatened to kill him if he returned.”
