Overview

Introducing Festo Kivengere

With the help of Uganda’s famous evangelist Festo Kivengere, Yacobo Kabaza and his family move to the Ugandan capital, Kampala, where Yacobo’s father will be the new driver for Archbishop Luwum. As part of the cathedral’s upcoming Centennial celebration, the archbishop asks Yacobo, an aspiring author, to write a play about the legendary three boys who became Uganda’s first Christian martyrs. The young teenager is thrilled.

However, the growing reign of terror of General Idi Amin and his "Special Forces," who falsely suspect the church of helping the rebels, overshadows Yacobo’s excitement. When the archbishop doesn’t return from a meeting with Amin, officials claim he died in a "car accident." Kivengere is forced to flee the country. But the church bravely goes on with preparations for the Centennial, and Yacobo’s play begins rehearsals, with his brother, Blasio, playing the youngest martyr. As the Special Forces circle closer, and the legend of the martyrs becomes alarmingly real, will Yacobo have the strength to survive?

Faced with death, their weapon is love.

An adventure story, ideal for readers 8-12 years of age.
