My name is Teresinha Kimuanga Morais. I am twenty-seven years old, a member and give service as the head of the Earth group in the Net of Salvation of Púri.
I was guided to the World Messianic Church of Angola in 2015 by Zacarias Kuambandioco Gastão, for whom I am very grateful. The reasons that brought me to the Church where:
- Family and marital conflicts
I suffered with strong headaches, stomachaches, pain in my feet, urinary infection, insomnia and I kept having the same dream in which I would be digging graves in a cemetery. To solve these problems I went to hospitals, traditional healers, sangomas but all were unsuccessful.
Amid all this suffering, I accepted an invitation to receive Johrei and was guided to the World Messianic Church of Angola in the province of Uíge. I was received by a missionary who listened to my problems and then guided me to:
- Receive ten Johrei per day
- Keep the flower of light at home
- Give service cleaning the church and the toilets
- Guide people and participate in all Church activities.
I had difficulties following this guidance at the beginning but, after three months dedicating intensively, all my sufferings were overcome.
To express my gratitude to the Supreme God, the Messiah Meishu-Same and my ancestors I materialized a special donation and a donation to thank for the first blessing received, thus becoming a candidate to receive the Ohikari.
The testimony of faith I would like to share with you is related to the basic practices of faith and the donation of gratitude.
Despite recovering completely thanks to the church, my parents were against it and constantly asked me to leave it. This was because many people said ours is a church of magic. Fearing more conflicts with my parents, I followed their wish and left the church for six months. Nevertheless, the purification came back stronger and I developed all the symptoms I had before being guided to the church. I stayed in bed for one month and one week; my parents got worried that things could get worse. They said: “When she went to that church, she got better so it is best that we call the Messianic! ” Thank God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama, the church was informed of my situation and I gained the permission to receive a visit from the center head and some followers.
The presence of the center head and his team caught the eye of my family and neighbours who gathered to see what they would do. The center head explained to all the reason for his visit: “Terezinha, we came to your home because, not only were we informed of your situation but I also had a dream where elders asked me to come here! ” When he described the elders in his dream my mom confirmed they were indeed my ancestors. The elders in the dream were my father’s grandfather, my mother’s father and my aunt.
After this and noting my condition, the center head and his team prayed, gave me a lot of Johrei, made a profound cleaning in my home, flower workshop and a vegetable garden. Thank God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama all present also received Johrei and by the end of the activities I was completely healed. Due to this miracle, my family and the neighbours who witnessed this happening were very impressed and, shaking their heads, recognized that the Messianic Church is not a church of magic but one of salvation. On the other hand, my parents were so happy that they encouraged me to keep attending the Messianic Church. Personally, due to my recovery, my commitment to the Messiah Meishu-Sama increased and I made the decision to practice the teaching that says: “I always say that, to be happy, we must first make others happy because the Divine reward for this is the true happiness! ”
As I did not yet have the Ohikari, I made a vegetable plot in my house where I planted many flowers. With them, I started to guide and take care of my family members, neighbours and other people in my neighbourhood. I initially started taking care of six houses with a total of twenty-four people. We followed the basic practices such as: distributing flowers, flower workshops, home vegetable garden, cleaning and prayers. The following miracles were experienced:
- A couple of members lived through constant conflicts at home. The husband did not give much attention to his wife, said bad things to her, called her by many ugly names and, if she tried to respond, then there would be fights. I started taking care of them, with flowers, prayers, flower workshops and the home vegetable garden. Thank God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama the husband, as is commonly said, changed from “water to wine” because he is now a kind man and there is peace in their house. As a way of expressing their gratitude the couple has materialized a donation of gratitude and I am preparing them to receive the Ohikari one day.
- I planned to visit the house of a member with the goal of making a profound cleaning there. As soon as I arrived, her husband hid in his room and said he did not want to take part in the prayer of our church. To our surprise, as soon as we started doing the flower workshop he, frightened, left the room, spoke about his personal problems, asked his wife for forgiveness, participated in the flower workshop and is now a committed member.
- My father was a pastor of another Church and did not accept Johrei, claiming that he did not agree with our faith. He suffered with many diseases such as headaches, pain in both arms, yellow fever and sores that popped all the time. These sores would appear in random parts of his body, last from three to four months and, when they popped would leave many scars; this lasted for nineteen years. Nevertheless, the family always supported him with different traditional and medical treatments but there were no improvements to his condition. Due to this suffering my father abandoned his church, the many treatments he was making and simply stayed at home waiting to die. Since he witnessed the miracle that happened to me, I begged the Supreme God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama for my father to also become an instrument of the Divine Work. Then I said to my father: “Dad, even though you do not believe in the Messiah Meishu-Sama, from now on please pray with me every day for your health and for the salvation of our ancestors! ” He accepted and to our surprise one of his arms healed after just one week. Thank God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama, the sores and all other symptoms have disappeared. As a way of expressing his gratitude, my father started encouraging people to attend the Messianic Church and he is also preparing himself to receive the Ohikari. My happiness was even bigger due to the quick answer from the Supreme God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama.
- Another member was suffering with bad dreams. Whenever she dreamed that she found money, she would lose all the money earned from selling at the market on the following day. Thus, I guided her to do the basic practices of faith, do the tithe and the construction donation. With this, all the problems were solved.
- In January, my baby suddenly stopped crawling and his body got very weak. My neighbours, seeing this situation and worried with the baby, advised me to take him to the hospital. I took the baby inside, prayed placing the situation in the hands of God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama and materialized a donation of gratitude for the purification. Then, I took some flowers from my garden and went with the child to the hospital. While waiting, before the doctor could see the baby, he went back to normal and started playing. Thus, the child did not need to be examined by the doctor, which surprised the doctor and all who witnessed this miracle.
This and other blessings that I have received from God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama have solidified my faith even more! To thank God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama, I materialized a donation of gratitude and intensified the distribution of flowers and visits to the homes that I take care of. With this testimony of faith, I learned that Meishu-Sama is the Messiah humanity has long waited for!
My commitment is to become a full member to better serve in the Divine Work and participate in the construction of the first Sacred Grounds in Africa in Cacuaco.
With permission from the Supreme God and the Messiah Meishu-Sama I have guided seventy people to the church, take care of six homes with a total of twenty-four people, I have the home vegetable garden and am a registered member.
I would like to extend my gratitude to the ministers, center heads, members and full members who directly or indirectly have helped me fulfil my mission. To all who listened to my testimony of faith, my sincere gratitude!
