A Feared Witch in Kenya Accepts Jesus

by Dale Fisher

Last month, I was in Kenya on a TLM trip to assess how the ministry is proceeding and to determine how to move forward with our training. Rachel, a Kenyan pastor's wife and a secondary-school principal living and working on an eastern slope of Mt. Kenya had been trained how to use Prayer, Care, Share and has begun to practice it, as you'll see.

She visited a witch named Mwaturi and began building a personal relationship with her. Mwaturi was widely feared in the area because, for example, she had previously told a woman in the village that a woman's baby (which was probably in utero) would die; and it did.

Rachel looked for ways to show kindness to Mwaturi; she cared for her by giving her clothing. However, people feared that Rachel would die due to the witch's spiritual powers. So they watched Rachel to see what would happen to her.

Thankfully, when people saw that Rachel did not die, they began to believe not only in Rachel but in the Christian way. Rachel led the witch to Christ. Today, the lady whose baby had died has healthy twins. God is victorious!

After Dale completed his sermon, Pastor Emmanuel Game stood up and asked the congregation, 'What have you learned from this message?'

Rachel describes to Dale her experiences having used Prayer, Care, Share.

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
— Ephesians 6:10–13
