to the Editor
During a recent visit to North Carolina, I was interviewed on a television program taped at St Augustines College in Raleigh. During the interview I spoke about Maitreyas appearance in Kenya in 1988, and showed one of the photos taken there.
After the program
ended, I made my way to the control booth to review the videotape. A
young student, Tim Mwadime, introduced himself. I was there,
he said, in Nairobi. I know this story. I am from Nairobi, Kenya.
I felt shivers up and down my spine. Goose bumps covered my skin. Tims
story went like this:
Samuel ended up going to a number of the meetings. Tim didnt see Samuel at work for a couple of days, and when Samuel returned, Tim told him: Theres something different about you. Samuel related his experiences at one of Mary Akatsas meetings. He had moved forward to where Mary Akatsa stood. She began praying for him. Suddenly, something came over him. He felt different; he felt changed. Subsequent days saw Samuels life take a new direction. He was friendlier. He no longer smoked or drank. To Tim, it seemed as if Samuels very nature had been transformed.
After the next gathering, Samuel told Tim of a most miraculous event. Mary Akatsa announced during the meeting that the Christ was coming, a Great One was coming. No one there actually expected Christ to appear at that meeting, but all of a sudden from out of nowhere, there he was -- Jesus Christ. Samuel told Tim that Christ had moved through the crowd to the place where Mary Akatsa was speaking. Everyone was shaken, he said. I asked Tim what Christ had done. He prayed, blessed some people and spoke with them for a while. Tim couldnt remember the exact words Christ had used.
Tim went on to
tell me of how the local papers carried the story the next day. He said
people couldnt believe it had happened. Nairobi was abuzz with
talk. It was a miracle, Tim said, his voice growing with
excitement, a sign. Tim regretted that he had not gone with
Samuel that day.
