Janet joined ECG Nairobi in August, 2017.
She says, “I had been attending a certain church here in Nairobi but left in 2015 after realizing some of their methods were not at all Godly.” Further, the pastor in that church had even threatened that no member could leave the church without consequence, but Janet left anyway.
She adds: “After leaving the church, I started experiencing attacks in the dream. Sometimes I would dream that the pastor was sleeping with me, other times I dreamed that I was being beaten by the congregation and being chased by dogs.”
Joyce became angry and suicidal, and consequently took out her anger on her police officer husband and three children. She began planning how she would kill her husband using his own gun, then kill herself and her three young sons.
“I was so angry and would beat my sons simply because they looked like their father,” Joyce explains. “It was a frustrating moment in my life and I didn’t know where or whom to turn to.”
A friend recommended she attend ECG Church Nairobi, and Joyce heeded the advice.
“As soon as I walked through the gates of the church, I felt the power of the Holy Spirit all over my body. During the service, Pastor William preached exactly what I was going through in my life at the time, and I remember crying throughout the entire service.”
After the service, Joyce joined the prayer line and was prayed for by both Pastor William and Mum Violet.
“After they laid hands on me, I don’t exactly remember what happened but I found myself on the floor. I went home only to realize much later that I was no longer angry nor suicidal.”
Two weeks later, she attended a prayer meeting at Arboretum grounds organized by ECG Nairobi whereupon Mum Violet gave Joyce a bottle of Lion of Judah anointing oil.
“I drank some of the anointing oil and began spraying the rest on my husband’s boxers,” explains Joyce. “My husband had erectile issues and because of that we had problems being intimate with one another.” However, after she began spraying the oil on his clothes, the couple’s intimacy was rekindled.
During the month of September, Joyce discovered she was pregnant and for a while hid the pregnancy from her husband, fearing that he would ask her to abort the baby.
“I was scared to tell him about the pregnancy because we hadn’t agreed on having any more children. I was anxious but Pastor William prayed for me and assured me that my husband would be accepting of the pregnancy,” Joyce says.
Indeed, when she finally got around to telling her husband, he took the news rather well and Joyce now says that out of all the times she has been pregnant, her husband seems to love this fourth pregnancy the most.
As the pregnancy advanced, Joyce was diagnosed with H pylori – a condition characterized by extreme nausea and vomiting, making it difficult for her to sustain a healthy appetite. She was keen to see a doctor but didn’t have the money to do so, and as such continued to rely on the Lion of Judah oil as her medication.
**** Pastor William at this point in Joyce’s narration halted her testimony to prophesy by the power of the Holy Spirit that Joyce would give birth to a baby girl and that she should name the baby Irene. ****
“One night I had a dream that I finally went to the hospital and when I walked into the doctor’s office, I found that the doctor was actually Pastor William,” Joyce continues her testimony. “When he asked me how Irene was doing, I told him that I didn’t know anyone by that name, but he laughed and told me that Irene was the name of the baby I was carrying!” says Joyce in confirmation of the prophecy.
Joyce says the dream then shifted to a scene where she found herself at the front of the church. “Pastor William prayed for me till I started rolling on the floor as he cast out demons from me. When I woke up, I was feeling stronger and my appetite was restored.”
She concludes by saying that her husband who never used to be interested in church matters suddenly gave her money to buy him a wrist band bearing the name of ECG founder, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri a.k.a Major 1. Joy and love have once again been restored in her family as the family awaits the birth of the baby.
