TAKES HIS FLIGHT TO UGANDA
This is a life testimony of Brother Silvanus Otuya regarding how the Message
of Brother Branham, a prophet to this generation, got into Uganda, East Africa.
It was certainly a great desire in Brother Branham to come to East Africa.
The prophet had a great feeling for the people of East Africa. The Lord did not
however enable him to physically visit the region. Thank God that the reason for
which he should have come to East Africa was fulfilled through the book
In Uganda, it was 1975 when a pilot student came to Soroti Flying School for
studies. He knew about the Message of Brother Branham from the church of Brother
Kamwatti in Nairobi, Kenya. However, he was in a backslidden state, but God used
him to come to Soroti with a few tracts of the Message and a few books. He never
wanted to give them to anybody. So at the end of his training, and not wanting
to carry back the books, he chose to leave them at the home of a man named Sam
in the town of Soroti.
When Sam read these books, he believed and asked someone to baptize him in
Jesus’ Name. He went to Teso College and testified to them about the books. Two
of them read the books also and believed. Both were baptized that evening. So
the first Message church in Uganda started with three brothers in Teso College,
One of the brothers, who was a teacher in Teso College, wrote for more books
using the addresses that were on the books. One day, while he was asleep, a
voice called him by his nickname “Ochaloi.” This was a name only being used by
very close friends who could not be around the school at that time of the night.
After the voice called his name, it told him, “Books.”
He did not understand at the time, but when he went to school for his duties
in the morning, he found there was a parcel for him. When he opened the parcel,
he found that there were about 40 titles of the Message of Brother Branham’s
books sent to him.
Today there is a Voice Of God Lending Library at Teso College, and by the
arrival of these few tracts and titles of the Message of Brother Branham, many
churches have been set up and demand for the Message material is increasing.
Thanks to the unreserved dedication by Voice Of God Recordings to the cause.
Thanks to Brother Joseph Branham for the vision to serve the Bride.
Every little contribution made to Voice Of God Recordings is faithfully
directed to a soul somewhere.
May God bless you all.
Brother Silvanus Otuya.
