Christians of the St. Charles Lwanga Catholic Church Molyko, Buea, have recently witnessed healing and deliverance sessions through end-of-the month prayers.
A small Christian group, Intercessors of the Lamb Community, founded and headed by the Catholic Education Secretary of the Diocese of Buea, Fr George Nkeze, has engaged in prayers and intercessions that have healed and delivered hundreds of Christians. Most of these Christians, The Post gathered, were delivered from demonic attacks, mermaid spirits and other spiritually related ailments.
The new spiritual move is now pulling an ever-increasing population to the prayer sessions that hold on the last Fridays of every month. On such occasions, a huge crowd is cramped into the now small church building to be part of the miracles and healing.
Christians of the Church, according to many clerics, are more susceptible to spiritual attacks considering that the Church is situated at the heart of a University community, considered to be demon infested area.
Last year, some yet to be identified men desecrated the church by defecating in it, destroying and burning sacred artefacts of the church. After the re-consecration of the church before use by the Christians following the demonic act, prelates of the church talked of the need to beef up the spirituality of Christians through prayers.
According to testimonies by some of those who attended the prayer sessions, many have been delivered of mermaid spirits and other demonic attacks. The Post learnt that during some of the prayer meetings, some victims of demonic attacks have even vomited rings and were healed.
"The Intercessors of the Lamb Community and the priest are doing exploit for God," a Christian said.One of those delivered from demonic attacks, Paul Funwe, a Presbyterian Christian, said the priest is God-sent, not only to Catholics but to all who are in need of divine touch.
"I have heard much about this man and I have seen the hand of God in this programme," he said.With the outcome of the prayer sessions and testimonies from those who have been healed, the church is now unable to accommodate Christians because of the massive turnout. People come from other denominations to experience God's miracle.
According to Mary Ngum, she is amazed at the work God is doing through the priest. "I am a Catholic but I have never seen such miracles in the Catholic Church before," she said.
On why the group was formed, Fr Nkeze disclosed that many of those who came to him for counselling had spiritual problems and he saw a need to reach out to the people and help them through the power of God.
"To many people God is dead and they always seek some form of protection and help from witch doctors and sorcerers. I am not moved by the crowd and miracles. My joy is to see many turn to God wholly; for God is real, alive and has all solutions to earthly challenges," he said.
He, however, frowned at Christians who give money to witchdoctors and voodoos to be healed. "God is the solution to all earthly pain," he said.
