PASTOR EMMANUEL KATENDA

God’s grace is something we as mere mortals find difficult to understand.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
(Ephesians 2:4-5)
This means that if we can do what we can do today, it’s because of his grace and not by ourselves. He will help the weak just as He will help the strong. God knows we are weak, but by his grace we are made strong.

He chooses the poor to become rich, the weak to become stronger, and I find myself doing what I can do today.

I heard the voice of God and decided to obey it. I decided from a young age to obey and carry out the tasks which God gave me, through his mercy.

In a vision God showed me the rapture, and how people are going to meet Jesus in the air. The people’s appearances changed and everyone was wearing a white garment.

That vision was the beginning of my understanding that God had put a calling on my life. Though I could not explain it very well, deep in my heart I knew that Jesus was coming back. It was an incredible journey as the vision of God became clearer in the ministry God gave me.

I was born in a small town called Likasi in Congo (DRC).

When my mother was pregnant with me God started speaking to her, and said that the child she carried would be a boy, and that He would use me as a prophet to the nation. My mother could see a lot of signs and visions about me.

She knew that God had a plan with this child. From my childhood, I had several close encounters with death, and my survival was because of God’s grace.

Around the age of one I started to get sick, and would be in and out of the hospital. The doctors gave up on me, as they could not cure me. My whole body was covered in sores till the age of seven years.

My mother and family found it hard to believe that I survived that long, but God’s grace was upon me. As he said to Jeremiah…

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
(Jeremiah 1:4-5).
At the age of 14 I started to preach the word of God at school and evangelizing from house to house in my neighborhood, as well as praying for the sick in the hospital.

God started to speak to me in an audible voice, constantly calling me. I could hear but not see Him who was calling me, but the voice came from above in heaven. Though I could not understand what was happening, in my heart I could sense a burning desire to serve God.
