- A woman, who has been identified as Sue Ellen, defended embattled Prophet Shepherd Bushiri
- According to Ellen, she too once believed Bushiri was a liar
- However, after attending one of his sermons, her son was miraculously healed
After Briefly.co.za covered a story about Malawians claiming they saw through 'Profit' Bushiri, Ellen contacted us to share her story.
Ellen explained she had a premature baby boy, who had to be on oxygen for 24hours after birth. He was finally sent home after a week in the hospital. However, a month later Ellen rushed back to the hospital with her "little prince."
The baby had a high fever and they discovered he had water on his brain. His condition was much worse than they expected and the doctor referred him to a therapist.
"Went inside doctor explained to me that my son will never walk as he has a problem with his brain," she recalled.
Ellen said it was during that time that she talked to her long-time friend, whose life changed after she started attending Bushiri's church.
The former alcoholic said she stopped drinking and was happily married with kids after she started going to the ECG.
However, like many others, Ellen was skeptical about the controversial pastor. In fact, Ellen said she described Bushiri as a con artist, liar and useless Pastor.
But, she ended up going to one of his sermons and her life changed.
"Bushiri didn't even touch me he just said people who are seated this side, God will change your story .. believe ..have faith..came back home," she recalled.
A week later, the therapist found that Ellen's son's condition improved - his affected leg was fine and so was the hand doctors said would never work.
"I go to ECG here and there ..I love Bushiri's teaching it's so powerful.....to everyone let God be the judge of prophet Shepard Bushiri," Ellen said.
Ellen called on South Africans, and Africans in general, to stop judging the prophet. She said she believed that something miraculous happened in church that day and she would forever be thankful to God and Major One.
