Thankful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit

Thankful for the guidance of the Holy Spirit

I was born in Burundi to a family who were not Christian and in primary school moved to live with my older sister.

Growing up, I had many health issues that could not be explained - inflammation of the body, chronic headaches, seeping sores on my body, terrible dreams where I couldn't sleep for days, and I felt something was preventing me thinking properly.

Looking back I wondered if it related to my parents practising rituals, evil spirits following the family.

Miraculously, after year 6 God helped me get the highest marks in all the schools around about. Still nothing made me happy because of the mental torture and in high school I was always sick. I started going to Christian meetings and one day they preached about the man at the pool of Bethesda. Something touched me in my heart.

Some time later I went to another meeting and when I went to the front to pray I experienced a spiritual battle between the powers of darkness and the fire of God. They prayed and prayed for me and the symptoms began to disappear.

After high school I went into military service, and there I experienced chest pain, my lungs were found to be full of fluid - the specialist saw the X-ray results and expected me to die, but I said I would be healed. The next X-ray showed all the fluid drained away and I was sent home.

I was baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit, I finished my university degree and got a job.

Joyce and I were married and after more difficulties and dangerous situations we were able to come to Australia in 2015, and one day while we were looking for a church we walked past the Revival Fellowship building on our way to Westfield.

We are thankful that the Holy Spirit was guiding us.
