HAPPY BIRTHDAY PROPHET ELVIS MBONYE!

When I first encountered Prophet Elvis Mbonye back then in mid-2016, I considered myself a somewhat ‘deep enough’ born again Christian: I spoke in tongues, I had just handed over the position of Mama (Vice-chairperson) of a hall fellowship, I had preached to a congregation of at least 20 people twice or thrice, I could…

If only you knew the gift of God!

So I was there idling on my bed, just thinking about the imminent birthday of my Spiritual father – Prophet Elvis Mbonye, when this revelation dawned on me and I felt led to share it; for anyone out there that may need to hear it. I am guessing you are quite familiar with the story…

Beauty for Ashes

I love this photo. Extravagantly. I have gone back and forth with myself on whether I should write about it, let alone show it to anyone, and finally, I have decided there’s no harm in sharing. This photo was taken sometime in my final year of campus; the year was 2016. At that time, my…

God, ALMIGHTY!

I know that God is mighty. It is right there in one of His many names, God Almighty. I know it, I have read it in my Bible and I have often heard people say it. In fact, I myself have said it quite a number of times. The problem is I don’t know if…

2017: I lay in green pastures! 

My end-of-year reminiscing is usually punctuated with huge, full-of-exhaustion sighs of relief; the kind that nonverbally say, “Oh thank God! This one is done too!” It is almost as if my entire year is spent in some kind of raging battle which I manage to survive by a whisker when the year finally ends. I…

Of Jobs, Dreams and routines

So I eventually got a job… finally. I was so excited about it. Over the moon. Ecstatic. Euphoric. I mean this is something I had waited for, for a whole year; praying, crying, hoping, getting to the brink of giving up and then starting the process all over again. Fast forward, a few months in…

God’s Masterpiece!

If we are to talk about masterpieces [assuming we really know what masterpieces are about], then somewhere along the conversation, someone is bound to say something about The Mona Lisa. I am no artist or lover of art and I can hardly tell a real painting from a mere kid’s doodling but I know The…

Speak Life!

Let me regale you a little with stories of where I stay: I am one of the millions or thousands (I am not sure because I was too lazy to research) of Ugandans that live in a mzigo (rental house). The mzigo I stay in is not the Katanga or Bwaise kind of mzigo, no….

Love Stories…(part 2)

This was a conversation between one of my imaginary friends and I a few days ago.  Me: (face brightly lit with excitement) Friends! Acquaintances! Comrades! Beat the drum! Sound the horn! Each and everyone, grab yourself a flute, a tambourine or a cymbal! Let me hear the loudest ululations and shouts of joy! Break out…

Love Stories

It’s been aeons since Morris was the subject of my stories; what do you say I make him squirm by making him the center of attention (for just a little while) in this story? You will remember Morris from previous articles (or rather article) to be the guy that in shockingly a few years from…

In honour of Priscilla Chelangat

​So I have read quite a number of books from different authors and I know I am not yet one of the best writers to ever walk this earth; I am not even close to that yet, but God knows how often I dream, daydream and constantly fantasize about it. I believe it is for…
