Prophet Gondwe attacked after healing boy of diabetes: Atheists say ‘God does not heal, science does’
A verbal war has ensued between a horde of non-believers and Prophet Patson Gondwe of Good News Ministries after he announced that, through prayer, a 12-year old boy who had high degree diabetes is now free from the ailment.
Gondwe, through his Facebook page, Prophet P. Gondwe Ministries, said Evance Penyani from Blantyre was diagnosed with high level diabetes that was pegged by medical practitioners to be at 589MG/DL.
“As such he was supposed to be injecting himself with insulin every 12 hours. When tested, sugar would always be at 589mg/dl or above,” wrote Gondwe.
He added: “He was then restricted to [take] some meals he enjoyed as a child. He was no longer allowed to eat meat, anything with fats of drink anything with sugar.”
According to Prophet Gondwe, doctors told Evance’s parents that there was no way he was going to be healed.
Nyasa Times learnt that after Evance’s mother took him to Prophet P. Gondwe Ministries the boy was prayed for and is now normal.
“The sugar levels have now dropped from 589mg/dl to normal,” said Gondwe.
Evance’s mother also confirmed in a separate interview that his son is now fine.
“I can only thank the living God of Prophet Gondwe for healing my son,” she said.
But some non-believers, who are allegedly atheists that belong to the Association of Secular Humanism (ASH) in Malawi, rubbished the claim as false and wishful thinking.
Joram Nyirongo, who works as a medical doctor at Kamuzu Central Hospital, described the testimony as “nonsense.”
He wrote: “We must not teach lies. The greatest miracles are done in our hospitals using medical science. And it’s the best that the Lord has provided for His people as long as we inhabit these earthly bodies.”
And, another atheist, Richmond Mphande, said outright that “God doesn’t heal. Science and medicine does.”
He further argued: “If he can heal after prayer, he can as well just prevent the illness before it happens.”
But according to Nyasa Times’ investigation, there are a lot more of these testimonies that happen at Prophet Gondwe’s church in Dzenza of Area 25 in the capital Lilongwe.
Good News Ministries came into being after Prophet. P. Gondwe visited the SCOAN Nigeria following a battle with a terminal liver disease in 2014.
The sole purpose of his visit was to encounter the healing hand of Jesus Christ through Senior Prophet TB. Joshua.
However, upon his return from SCOAN the Lord spoke to him through a vision that he was destined to be in the ministry of Christ Jesus.
Prophet Gondwe was obedient to the voice of God Almighty to pursue his God-given mission and this gave rise to the birth of Good News Ministries in the year 2015.
The ministry begun in the district of Mchinji with three people.
The proliferation of Pentecostal Churches, especially of the prophecy-led ministries, has seen a series of bizarre rites commonly legitimated as ‘miracles’ some of which have elicited ridicule from both believers and non-believers.
Promising prosperity, miracle cures and life-changing experiences, Pentecostal religion is booming in Africa.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
Fake Prophets who only pray on the poor. You heal somebody and want the whole world no about it? Why can’t you pray for rains in Malawi and everybody see it raining? That would be a miracle. #Christianityunderattack
If God or rather gods can do anything, why can’t an innocent newborn with downs syndrome be cured? Believing in any gods, including this manic, psychopathic , ignorant, sadist moronic yahwe / allah of the bible or the Quran respectively ( if u trully read these fantasy fiction with a sober mind and as a grown up person) is not only the worst form of self hypnosis mankind has ever known, but it makes you an imbecile. Seriously, if monkeys could read the bible / Quran, I am sure they would laugh at the garbage in there….please people wake up… Read more »
Poor Evance. Being betrayed by overzealous anti-science religionists. (It has been suggested that one problem in the less educated societies, like ours, is that we take the teachings in the bible, literally rather than parables -which they are supposed to be.) Some of these commentators seem to string an argument together, suggesting that they have been through post-secondary education. So, unless they never took a science course at all, it is hard to understand their beliefs of the “bible” over science. Do they believe in gravity, even though it is not visible, or ration of the earth, or that the… Read more »
What i like most about our God is that HE is so democratic He doesn’t force pple to believe in what HE wants them to believe in. People are free to make choices like the choices that u Joram and ur many many friends have made. So pls don’t call us who believe in the healing power of God as fools becoz we too have made our choices. Our God heals and this boy Evans has been healed in Jesus name.

God is still performing miracles in these days…never underestimate the power of the holy ghost. Never ever do that guys
Izi ndizimene akukuna ku Rwanda. So deceitful and people have no eyes to see the shrewdness that comes with such kind of prophesy. I wonder how people who are well learned can be deceived by this brain wash of the so called pastors. In Rwanda they want people to have a degree of theology before they can open churches and not just steal from people who are seeking for salvation which will never come their way with such deceitful prophets. Very soon in Malawi most of us will become pastors because it is an easy way of accumulating money without… Read more »
It is unbelievable, that Nyasatimes is publishing such rubbish. This Gondwe is the same story as with alle fake healers. Just remember “mchape” claiming healing AIDS. Such guys like Gondwe are a danger to the society being responsible for deaths of children with type I Diabetes in the future.. As long as Malawians believe in those healers, witchcraft etc. there will be no development in the country. Same with corruption. … Shame on Nyasatimes by reporting such nonsense it is promoting “no development”
Mr Joram Nyirongo please know that God is the only source of life. He still performs miracles. He has allowed man to enjoy the previlidge of knowing some of his ways through science. Mr Joram please do not worship science but God himself the almighty. If you accept Jesus today as Lord and savior of your life, you will just have made the greatest and most admirable decision of your life. Amen.
