Pastor to wounded missionaries in Uganda: 'God is bigger than any evil'

People watch the World Cup final at a restaurant in Kampala late on July 11, moments before blasts tore through the crowds.

The Rev. Kathleen Kind leads the Pennsylvania congregation that saw five missionaries injured in yesterday's Uganda bombings. She spoke with CNN Monday morning about the condition of the injured and about how the incident would affect future missions at the 500-member Christ Community United Methodist Church in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania.

What’s the latest on the injured missionaries from your church?

Those injured are receiving medical treatment and a number of them are en route to other hospitals for more specific or higher quality medical services. Everybody is alive and everybody is stable. We had six people in our group and five of them were injured, some seriously. Some of the wounds involve broken bones and shrapnel. The State Department, the consulate and the General Board of Global Ministries, an agency of the United Methodist Church, are all working together to provide as much care as necessary for our team members.
