KENYA: Healing testimonies dominated Dr David Owour’s crusade at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium on Saturday.

Most of his followers, who travelled from different regions of the country and beyond, testified of being healed during the crusade.

Twenty-year-old Rehema Chepkurui from Bomet County danced on the dais during the healing session, saying she was now able to see.

Chepkurui said she had been lying sick at home after she was diagnosed of brain trauma following an operation at Eldoret’s Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital last December.

“Since I was operated on, I have lost my sight but now I can see,” she said to the cheers of thousands of believers who thronged Afraha Stadium.

Charles Obonyo from Musanda village in Mumias said his eyesight was restored during the crusade.

Obonyo said he has been blind for the past two years. “I came here after hearing of the healing crusade and surely I can now see,” he said.

Margaret Omara, a Ugandan, jumped continuously on the red carpet after she was healed. Omara said she has been using a spinal brace to support her back and that she could not sit and walk since 2006.

“A bomb ripped my right leg last December. I have since been using crutches. After the prayers, I can now walk without crutches,” said Kevin Onesmas Kokonya, a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officer who survived an al Shabaab bomb in Somalia.

Doctor Toromo Kochei, a specialist in HIV/Aids said he has verified a number of HIV victims who get healed after believing in God.

He said since The Repentance and Holiness Ministry begun holding crusades, 50 HIV victims have been cured.
