A Story of Grace and Healing


Recently the power of God in healing has been demonstrated on an extraordinary level in Mawanga. A caregiver named Tappenesi, who has been dear to ROWAN for 10 years became very ill late last year. So ill that most thought she would pass away. Through God’s grace she received the attention she needed by being sent to a hospital in Kampala. She went from not being able to move, talk, or eat to sitting up, holding conversations and eating solid foods! However, this story is not that simple. Tapp’s daughter Veronika was by her mothers side and tried anything she could to heal her mother. Read Veronika’s testimony, entailing the trials and tribulations and ultimately the strong power of healing through Jesus Christ for her mother.
Veronica’s testimony:
“My name is Veronica Alowo, I am 29 years old and live in Bisambira Mawanga .
I am a single mother with three children, two boys and one girl. My mom is Tappenesi Omara and my dad is Moses Omara and they live in Mawanga.
When my mom was sick I left my home and started taking care of my mom. My mom’s sickness worsened day by day so ROWAN decided to take her to the hospital in Jinja for a check up. While in the hospital the doctors tried to  find out what was causing her problems but  they could not find anything. After that they decided to bring her back home.
As a family we thought that our mom was being bewitched  so we decided to go to the witchdoctor in Nnodwe. When we got to the witchdoctor, they told us that our mom did not shave her hair when she lost her mother [ our grand mother ] and he told us that was the reason as to why our mom was feeling pain in the neck and in the head. So he told us to bring 4 goats, 2 sheep, 8 chickens and 380,000 ug shs. We went home and I wanted to sell my house but when pastor Paul’s wife heard about it she came to me and told me not to. I didn’t hear her so I sold my house which I had bought at 1.8 million and I sold it at 1.2million. We took the things to the witchdoctor and he slaughtered the animals, corrected all the blood and washed our mom after he covered her to sleep. Pastor Paul asked me where our mom was, I lied to him and said that she was in Iganga in the hospital. While all that was going on our mom could not talk or eat. Our father had not allowed us to try the witchdoctor because our father never believed in witchdoctors.
After two weeks we came back home in the evening with some necklaces and some other things from the witchdoctor to use. The next morning Jane, Pastor David’s sister came and found our mom wearing those things we got from the witchdoctor I was ashamed because I thought she will go and tell Pastor Paul so I did not even greet her. Church members used to come and pray for her and she was greeting better but wherever they moved out we applied our things from the witchdoctor and the situation worsened.
After one week pastor Paul came in the morning and took her to another hospital in Jinja for check up but still they could not find the disease so I told my aunt that these doctors were lying so we went back home and we as family still believed that our mom was being bewitched so we continued using and following the instructions from the witchdoctor but the church members never got tired of coming and praying for her.
On the 24th of December pastor Paul sent his wife to come and tell us that ROWAN was taking our mom to the hospital in Kampala.I personally refused because I thought they were going to kill our mom so we opposed but my father had accepted. At 5 pm, pastor David came with the ambulance and they took our mom to Kampala and I remained crying for my mom at home. On the 29th of December I went  to Kampala to the hospital to see my mom. I found her feeding in the tube. I was there for two weeks  and some born again Christians used to come and pray for her. One day a certain pastor came and told my mom to only believe though she was not talking. The pastor prayed for her and he left. At evening I was seated in the room eating some rice and my mom was looking at me surprisingly.  She asked me “does Morren know this place?”  [ Morren is our last  born]. Instead of answering yes or no I just ran away and went to the reception called the Doctors and told them that my mom was TALKING. We went back to the room and I tried giving her some food in the mouth and she ate it. I was extremely happy for my mom. After a long period of  time without talking and eating GOD made it happen.
After she told me that she wanted to talk to Morren. I rushed and bought some airtime and called Pastor David and Pastor Paul. I told them that mom was talking so joy was everywhere. I called my brother and asked for Morren. I put my phone on the loud speaker and mom said hello to morren. Morren answered and even told mom how she passed her  primary leaving examination. From there I began believing in the prayers and that GOD is ABLE. I started feeding her and since then I was the happiest person and people started calling me TAPP JUNIOR. But all along I had not confessed CHRIST as my personal Lord and Savior but I  used to go for fellowship. My mom has even started making choices of the foods she wants to eat and she is even feeding herself, GOD IS GOOD.
One day when we were in Kampala, Pastor David came with his son called Solomon and I told Solomon that one day I will stand and confess Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. After some time we shifted and came to Jinja to another hospital and my mom is improving day by day. On the 28th of January 2015 in the hospital I decided to confess and take Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior.
With God all things are possible. My mom and ROWAN are not of a clan. It is because of the GRACE that GOD has and ROWAN has treated my mom well and she is getting better everyday.
Thank you so much Kelsey, Pastor Paul, Pastor David and the ROWAN family for the support and love you have demonstrated towards my mom’s health.
May the mighty God bless you abundantly”
