Now he can see!
After I finished preaching on “Exceptional Excitement – The Power of the Testimony” at the Sunday morning service (Feb 19) at Glory Mission Centre in Dandora (Nairobi, Kenya), I was relaxing in the office of FTAF Apostle Benson Kiunjuri, enjoying a simple lunch and some chai (tea). After a few minutes of “winding down” after this “last” ministry activity on this trip to Kenya, I found out I wasn’t actually finished.
Pastor Elihud brought to the office a friend named Richard, whose vision was so severely impaired that he had not been able to see more than 3 or 4 inches in front of his face, for over 20 years!
Apostle Kiunjuri “informed” me that I wasn’t done with ministry that day, and I whole-heartedly agreed! The compassion of Jesus welled up in all of us as we prayed for healing of Richard’s eyes. The power of that compassion improved his vision so much, that he was able to see the clock on the wall, and the hands on the clock, something he could not do when he first came into the office. He correctly identified several objects and their colors, and was able to accurately discern the number of fingers Apostle Kiunjuri held up to test his vision.
Joy filled the office and the Joyful One rejoiced with us, because His compassion has once more paved the way for changing a blind man’s life forever! Bwana asifiwe (Lord be praised)!
I was now able to finish my chai and head to dinner and the airport for the safari home, although I’m not sure I needed the plane to fly!
