At ARM we see many “God Stories”, these are stories of God’s provision and healing that we can explain no other way but through God. Emmanuel’s story is nothing short of miraculous.
In 2008, Mwebesa Emmanuel in our Muleete Child Development Program started experiencing severe pains all over his body. After some time, his lower limbs, the hands and his body joints also became affected. He couldn’t move or talk. His grandparents took him to several hospitals but in the process, no one was able to diagnose the problem.
After three years of consecutive pain and suffering, an ex-social worker at Muleete CDP transported Emmanuel to Wentz Medical Centre in Gaba and in partnership with Kololo International Hospital they tested and confirmed that he had a brain tumor that needed Neurosurgery, something that is not available in Uganda. The only option left was to try and take Emmanuel to India but with a price tag of $25,000 US dollars, things seemed impossible.
At this point, the people from Gaba Community Church and Africa Renewal Ministries embarked on a regular and sustained time of prayer asking God to do something amazing. Little did we know that at this time, God had already started to make the arrangements and through a short term visiting team, ARM was connected to “a friend, of a friend, of a friend” who was a Dr. in Kenya.
After several correspondence emails, the doctor in Kenya believed he would be able to perform the surgery at a fraction of the original price ($2,500). Emmanuel was sent immediately to Kenya and the tumour was removed. To the doctor’s amazement, Emmanuel was able to walk and talk within one short week after suffering for over 3 long years.
Currently, Emmanuel is in 10th grade and says,
“I am now fine although I still feel some pain in my head but am trusting God for total deliverance. I want to thank ARM for the support they extended to me to save my life and everyone who stood with me and raised money to provide for me. May the good Lord bless you abundantly.”
Emanuel will be undergoing further radiotherapy to continue to make sure he stays well and free form the tumour returning.
God has used many different people to contribute towards this miracle and we want to say a big thank you to everyone who prayed for this healing. God did it and really answered our prayers in a huge way!
