It literally took Philip Muganzi a near – death experience to meet a wife that he had been praying for and for whom he had, by faith, sown a seed years before..
“When my father mentioned the church at which the Good Samaritan lady from the accident worshipped, I knew this was the answer to my prayer,” Philip says.
For Immaculate Kyarisiima, having developed a strong friendship with Philip’s father since the accident, played the biggest role towards saying yes to Philip within the short two weeks they got to know each other.
“Around the time all this was happening, I had already been very ready for marriage. I would stand and scream, ‘I take the anointing of marriage’, during services as my pastor preached. I looked so ridiculous before people, yet I did not mind. I am a lady of crazy faith,” Immaculate narrates.
And so when Philip declared his intention, she did not hesitate; after all knowing the family is the strongest foundation needed for a lasting good marriage, according to Immaculate.
On January 10, 2019 as Philip, his father and elder sister were travelling from their farm in Kyegegwa to Mbarara, the vehicle they were using veered off the road, overturning seven times before coming to a halt in someone’s compound at the foot of the hills of Mparo, Kyegegwa. It was purely a miracle that anyone survived with minor injuries seeing how the car was wrecked.
“Soon enough a crowd had gathered and among them my now beautiful wife,” Philip says.
“We were returning from the field with the sales team of Fres-Uganda that particular Friday, when we met many people crowded at an accident scene,” Immaculate says.
“There was a woman preaching passionately. Turns out she was one of the survivors declaring how it could only have been God that saved them.”
That woman is Phillip’s sister. Click to read more…
