Pr. Imelda Namutebi

Namutebi was born to mr wayita and Rosemarry nakakawa (both deceased) in Busujju Mawanda – Butambala but she was raised by her grandfather, hajji Bumbakili Male Muwanga.
She attributes her never give up approach to her staunch Muslim and used to pray five times a day and fast for 40 days.
As a child, she recalls being tormented by evil spirits because her family practiced a lot of witchcraft. This left her weak and fearful. “I would see stars and men trying to capture me whenever I went to bed,” the deliverance pastor recalls. She describes herself as a sickly child who was always in and out of witchdoctors` shires.
So deeply entrenched was the family in witchcraft that even the simplest ailment would solicit a visit to a witchdoctor. Despite devotion to their ancestral spirits, nothing improved and the family lived in abject poverty.
Her turning point started with the loss of her 10-year-old sister when Namutebi was 12 years old in primary five. At that time she was living at her uncle Mohammed Seddus` home. Afraid to die young like her sister, she ran away and went to live with her cousin, who she refers to as her big sister. It was here that she first learned about Jesus Christ.
There was a house girl there who told me about salvation so I started seeking God. Around the same time, I met a young woman called Lydia who advised me to get saved because my situation was quite pathetic.
When Namutebi was aged 16, a girl called Deborah prophesied about her future saying she prosper and travel to nations. At that time, this seemed impossible she already had a child, sherry with who she shared a mat as a bed.

She never took that serious but when she went for her usual Islamic prayers, she spoke in tongues for 30 minutes. This was very strange to her. But then she knew some thing had changed in her. She says,” I removed my charms and talismans from around my waist and started seeking God seriously.”
“I felt I was communing with someone who had the power to change my story. By the time I was done I felt light, relieved and transformed. Deborah helped me to declare the words of salvation. That’s when my salvation journey begun.”
But the young Namutebi had to deal with her demons. The voices in her head never stopped talking. Desperate refuge, she sought refuge from Pastor Simeon Kayiwa’s Namirembe Christian fellowship but found no relief. After a dream being taken to different shrines, her friends Lydia and Addah suggested she goes to pastor Robert Kayanja of Rubaga Miracle Centre.
She immediately went to see Pastor Robert Kayanja. He prayed for he and she was totally delivered. She stoped hearing voices and totally gave my life to Christ. She also did face rejection form her sister over crossing from Islam to Christianity. It was hard for her as her sister made her life a misery. Her abuse her until she had no choice by to leave home.
